Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham feel at home at Wembley

10 February 2018

Mauricio Pochettino is a hard position.

For now, Pochettino and Wenger remain in place, one adored, one once adored.

Wenger is the longest-serving manager in the league by a huge distance, having been in his post at Arsenal since 1996.

Arsenal won't exactly mimic this tactic (Wenger will be more expansive and patient in his approach) but nevertheless his team have the tools to exploit the space behind Jan Vertonghen and Davinson Sanchez.

Ahead of the North London derby, Wenger insisted on the importance of defeating the Spurs while praising rival striker Harry Kane as one of the best in Europe. And Spurs have an attack that is one of the best in the league on the counter.

Syria says Israeli war planes target a position near Damascus
France said Wednesday that "all indications" suggested the Syrian regime was using chlorine weapons against rebel forces. But tensions have flared as Turkish forces moved to set up one such post south of Aleppo.

They have won their last nine games at the national stadium, including a penalty shoot-out victory over Chelsea in this season's Community Shield. That would give Arsenal a mountain to climb.

Kane now leads the Premiership as top-scorer with 22 goals, and recently netted his landmark 100th goal through a penalty during Spurs' 2-2 draw at Liverpool. But he made it clear that returning in time for the Arsenal game was just pure coincidence and not planned.

Under Andre Villas-Boas and then Tim Sherwood, Spurs were put back where Arsenal fans thought they should be: craning their necks in the league table. Spurs have been far less consistent this season than last. He combined with another new boy, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who looks revitalised after leaving Manchester United.

"Two weeks ago, I would have been dreading this game but now I look at it as a bit of an opportunity".

"Yes, I don't encourage them to dive at all".

Trump 'saddened' by Porter allegations: White House
But right now, Porter's story is key, and not because it's in any way unique for a Trump appointee to lose his or her job. Much of the criticism is directed at Kelly, who has made equivocal statements in recent days about his former aide.

Sumpter knows this is a big game for both clubs. He has owned them in the past, scoring six goals in six appearances. With confidence high, Pochettino must start Victor Wanyama.

Maybe it was a question of belief. When they conceded an early goal through Eric Dier's error, their heads went down and it took them until halftime to recover.

Prediction: Draw & Both Teams to Score (5/2) We should be in for a cracking North London Derby.

On the other side of town, a change is feared.

Not that this will be an easy game.

Winter Olympics: Stauber leaves imprint on United States women's hockey team
The jerseys are traditional, but have also been modernized. "I'm just trying to enjoy every day that I'm here". The United States of America has participated in the Winter Olympics for nearly a century, and no U.S.

Spurs have dropped 37 points from leading positions in Premier League games against Arsenal - more than any team has against another in the competition's history. The forward ironically started his career for the Gunners, but was released at the tender age of eight - he eventually found his way to Tottenham. Tottenham is a -105 money-line favorite, meaning you would need to wager $105 to win $100.
