Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has admitted team morale is low heading into North London derby against Arsenal.
"It is a real dark spell for us at the moment. These last two games, we've taken heavy defeats and this is a great opportunity to bounce back," Sherwood said, per Tony Stenson at the Daily Star. "We want to get away from the two games against Arsenal being our season."
A heavy defeat to the Gunners will be problematic to Sherwood's long-term future as Spurs manager.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood will reject a reduced role as an assistant manager should he be replaced by Louis van Gaal.
"I feel like I can do the No. 1 job," Sherwood said, per Matt Law at the Telegraph. "I don't think I’d be good at No. 2. I'm too opinionated. I wouldn't want to do the No. 2 job."
A 2-0 FA Cup defeat to Arsenal, a 5-1 Premier League defeat to Manchester City and a 4-0 Premier League defeat to Chelsea are reasons why chairman Daniel Levy could pull the trigger on Sherwood's reign.
