Moussa Sissoko - We’ll be ready for Arsenal.

Updated: Aug 30, 2019

Moussa Sissoko had his say on what went wrong in Tottenham's 1-0 loss at home to Newcastle in the Premier League, and he insisted they'll be ready for the north London derby on Sunday.

Spurs have endured an underwhelming start to the new season as they sit five points behind Liverpool with three games played.

The Lilywhites suffered their first defeat of the campaign last weekend with a 1-0 loss to Steve Bruce's Magpies.

“What went wrong?” he was asked by a Norwegian TV crew as the club's official website reported. “We lost, and we’re all disappointed,” Moussa responded.

“What went wrong? We conceded a goal where we should do better, and we had a few chances we should score but we didn’t do it. We had the possession and we dominated the game, but it wasn’t enough to get the three points. Now we need to move on and be ready for next week.”

The midfielder is hoping Mauricio Pochettino's side seal three points when they visit Arsenal, who lost to Liverpool last weekend.

“It’s going to be a tough game, a massive game, everyone is waiting for it - the fans, the Club, the players. Derbies are always exciting. We’ll be ready, hopefully we’ll win and take three points before the international break.”
