Emery Admits Tottenham Are The Better Side Ahead Of North London Derby

Emery Admits Tottenham Are The Better Side Ahead Of North London Derby

Unai Emery has revealed that he believes Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham side are better than his Arsenal outfit.

Spurs have finished above their North London rivals for the last two years on the bounce, something that didn't happen for 23 years before Pochettino's arrival at White Hart Lane.

However, despite him thinking Tottenham are better side he believes the home crowd will give his men the edge in this afternoon's derby.

"At the moment, Tottenham is better than us in the table and better than us last year but in history Arsenal is better at other moments than Tottenham," Emery told Sky Sports.

"I think we are going to live with two (sets of) supporters and I think it will be a very good atmosphere.

"The first match if in our stadium and with out supporters and we want on Sunday to give them the best performance and can give them our energy and our things on the pitch help them push us."

It may be the Spaniards first North London derby, however, he used to 'passionate' derbies from previous jobs.

"I lived different derbies like Real Sociedad vs Athletic Bilbao, like CSKA Moscow vs Spartak, PSG vs Olympique Marseille.

"Sevilla vs Betis is with the passion because they are two teams with very big and passionate supporters and here in England I think I am going to live Sunday the first derby and think it is similar with the passion.

"Sometimes in the history, Sevilla is better and sometimes Betis are better. I think here it is the same."

Meanwhile, both sides go into the game at the Emirates in fine form as Emery's side are currently on an 18-game unbeaten run (14W, 4D), while Pochettino's side have won their last six, including a 3-1 trashing last weekend over fellow Londoners Chelsea.

Spurs are 7/4 to win the match and end Arsenal's run, while the Gunners are 13/8 for the three points. A draw might be a sensible bet at 13/5.
