F best coaches in world says Arsenal’s Emery
a good moment in their season, so it’s going to be tough.
“In history, however, Arsenal are better at other moments than Tottenham.
“This match is in our stadium with our supporters and we want to show them our best work.
“We want them to see our energy and our performance, and in return we want to feel them pushing us.”
Victory for Arsenal would take them into the top four for the first time this season and above Spurs in the table, level on 30 points but with a superior goal difference.
Defeat would leave Arsenal six points adrift and still trying to play catch-up in the first season for 23 years that Arsene Wenger is not involved in this showdown.
Wenger famously had no time for the traditional after-match drinks shared by football managers.
It will be different this time. Whatever the result today, Emery and Pochettino will remain united in a long-standing friendship.
