TV Rights for Premier League & Spuds preview

Arsenal travel to White Hart Lane on Sunday with a team that looks light on the midfield with Nasri, Denilson, Song and Eboue…My god if we cme back with a win with this team we should be blessed…Arshavin most probably won’t be playing and Keane will be playing in all probability. Lets hope we keep the record of beating the Spuds intact.
