Pochettino remaining positive despite North London derby defeat to Arsenal

Pochettino remaining positive despite North London derby defeat to Arsenal

On Sunday afternoon at the Emirates, Tottenham Hotspur were humbled 4-2 at the hands of Arsenal.

According to a report from The Telegraph, the fan launched the banana peel toward Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after the striker netted a 10th-minute penalty.

"Now I'm thinking about the match on Wednesday in Manchester", Emery said when asked whether this was his most significant win so far.

"But above all it is three points, like against Bournemouth".

Arsenal's win over Spurs means they are now 19 games without defeat in all competitions.

Speaking about Torreira on Match of the Day 2, Arsenal legend Ian Wright said (via Metro UK), "He's the guy we've been looking for for the past 4 or 5 years".

"We were watching Tottenham play at home against Chelsea, they won, with a big, big performance with their supporters".

"Some players would sulk and say, I'm leaving at the end of the season, so it doesn't really matter, but his attitude has been spot on".

On came Alexandre Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey at the interval and the changes helped to turn the contest again.

His dismissal for a second bookable offence late in the game means he will serve a one-match suspension. "And this was one", Emery said.

Emery has a strong bench to use, and bringing on players of the calibre of Lacazette and Ramsey is a luxury few teams even among the big six have.

"I look at here today and it's completely different, it's shocked me today [Sunday] because a team that I admire and love in Tottenham over the last two or three years have been out run".

Arsenal play-maker Mesut Ozil has been linked with a move away from Emirates Stadium despite signing a new contract with the Gunners in January, with Italian giants reportedly ready to make a move for the German.

"I trust in all the players and to give the opportunity to whoever gives us the best".

It later emerged that the German worldwide had been suffering from back pain and was not fit enough for the match day squad.
