Arsène Wenger: English players are the masters of diving now

Kane won a penalty against Liverpool on Sunday and Alli was cautioned for diving in the same game and although Mauricio Pochettino said the yellow card for his Tottenham midfielder was justified, he claimed...

"I am convinced he wanted to say that tricking your opponent is to be clever", Wenger told reporters at his pre-match news conference.

Faces a battle to get into the Spurs XI, let alone a combined one, but Trippier tends to be picked ahead of Serge Aurier for the big games so he's our right-back.

Petr Cech could miss the north London derby after picking up a calf injury during Arsenal's 5-1 win over Everton last weekend.

"I remember there were tremendous cases here when foreign players did it, but I must say the English players have learned very quickly and they might even be the masters now".

"In my personal case I don't encourage them to dive at all".


"Every striker will do that". How far can you go? That is down to the referees and I think that sometimes, at normal speed, it is very hard to determine.

Cech was brought off during the 5-1 win at home to Everton, limping off and being replaced by David Ospina, but it is said to be a slight knock and he will be available for Saturday.

Cech is yet to miss a Premier League game this season but Arsenal have Colombia global David Ospina standing by to make his first start of the campaign. "Petr Cech has not practised but I will not take any risk if he is not 100 percent fit".

Whether it is Cech or Ospina between the sticks at Wembley, it would take a courageous man to bet on Arsenal keeping a clean sheet, and they will more than likely have to rely upon their superb front-line, if they are to have any chance whatsoever of heading back to the Emirates with all three points.

"What Wembley gives you is a good pitch to allow you to play the way you want to play".

His side go into the game in sixth place, four points behind Spurs and five off a Champions League qualifying spot.
