Arsenal’s head coach Unai Emery will get his first taste of the derby when they host Tottenham at Emirates Stadium early next month.
Also in that same December, Arsenal team will face Tottenham again in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup. The head coach told the club website that he understands the rival but not in the way supporters know them.
“Yes, I knew this rivalry,” said Emery via the club website.
“Not like you or like every supporter here in London or for supporters of Tottenham or Arsenal. But we are going to play against them in the Premier League or like now in the Carabao Cup and I am going to research a lot of information about this.”
“We are here to do one thing in this title and we are going to play against the big teams.”
“For us, it’s different if we play away or if we play here at home. I think it’s important for us to play here with our supporters at Emirates. I think this is the moment for both clubs, a great moment, but only one can win.”
