Tottenham defender Eric Dier: Arsenal in difficult period, but...

Tottenham defender Eric Dier says there'll be no underestimating derby opponents Arsenal this weekend.

Dier has claimed league positions are irrelevant when it comes to the north London derby.

He told Sky Sports: "They're going through a bit of a difficult period but in these games it doesn't really matter, who is where in the table is irrelevant.

"We know how much of a difficult game it's going to be, how much the game means for us as players and for the fanbase and the club.

"The position in the table is irrelevant and I think it's very early on in the season for both teams.

"It's going to be a great game either way and one we're really looking forward to."
