Unai Emery previews Arsenal v Tottenham
Unai Emery looks ahead to Arsenal's home clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon
Unai Emery has promised Arsenal fans that his team are seeking to create a “special day” when they host Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday’s Premier League showdown.
The north London side are aiming to try and bounce back to winning ways after the disappointment of their 3-1 loss to Liverpool FC at Anfield last weekend.
Arsenal are now preparing to host Tottenham Hotspur at The Emirates this weekend as they bid to head into the international break with a win.
Tottenham, too, are looking to return to winning ways after their surprise 1-0 loss to Newcastle United in front of their home fans last weekend.
Emery says that he will set his team up to try and create a “special” performance in front of the Arsenal supporters at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
Speaking in an interview quoted by Sky Sports, Emery said: “Matches like last week against Liverpool, this week against Tottenham, they are the two teams who played the final of the Champions League. It’s amazing and is the best test.
“Every time is a good time to play against them with our supporters. Maybe this match on Sunday is the best match in the world for all football supporters.
“We can remember some positives and some less positive from each derby match. Overall I want to create a new derby, a new match, a new moment for us.
“We want to have a special day with our supporters at our home.”
Arsenal will return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Watford away from home on 15 September.
The north London side finished in fifth place in the Premier League table and reached the Europa League final last season in what was Emery’s first campaign in charge at The Emirates.
