It doesn’t matter if it’s the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup… or maybe even in Europe later this season. Arsenal v Spurs is always a huge game.
Unai Emery will get his first taste of the derby when we host Tottenham at Emirates Stadium on December 2. And later that month we’ll face them again in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup.
“Yes, I knew this rivalry,” said Emery. “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.”
