Nuno Espirito Santo: North London Derby more than just a game

Nuno Espirito Santo believes that the North London Derby this weekend is more than just a game. This will be his first taste of the derby as he replaced interim manager Ryan Mason at the start of this season. Tottenham is looking for their first win against the Gunners at the Emirates in eleven years. After a promising start to the season, Spurs come into the game on the back of two consecutive losses against Crystal Palace and Chelsea.

“It’s not another game – it’s a special game for us, for our fans. It’s going to be a tough match, but no doubt it’s a different game.” Nuno Espirito Santo said ahead of the North London derby. “I have many, many situations in derbies. But this is a new one, a tough one and a special one for our fans. If it’s special for our fans, it’s very special for us. We expect a tough match and we have to compete. We have to give everything that we can and play well. Playing well is finding the right balance in our game.”

“[There’s] lots of aspects that we have to improve – set-pieces, the way we concede, especially with the momentum of the game,” he added. “We were in control, dominant, and created so many chances, and we allowed our opponent to get back in the game. There are improvements to be made but a lot of positives we can take from the previous game, so let’s keep on going.”
