The Lilywhites travel to Emirates Stadium looking to bounce back from last weekend’s surprise loss to West Bromwich at White Hart Lane.
And Pochettino, who is preparing to face off with Wenger for the first time as Spurs boss, says that he has nothing but respect for the Frenchman.
“We have a good relationship,” said Pochettino. “We played against Arsenal [with Southampton] I have full respect for him, he is a great manager.
“An 18-year stay in charge is not easy. It’s a big gap with me in Tottenham.
“Tottenham for me is a big job, it’s a dream to stay here like [him] or to have the time Arsene had in Arsenal. For this, I need to show my skill, I need to work hard, I need to get the results.
“In football you never know, you need to work with passion that we have. We are positive in our job, in our skill, with the players. We try to arrive as far as possible.”
