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.

Cavaliers deal guard Dwyane Wade back to Heat
In an exclusive interview with CBS4, Dwyane Wade Sr. says he knew something was up when he talked to his son Wednesday night. With Wade's return coming shortly after the Heat debuted their new Miami Vice style jerseys, it was really a ideal storm.

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".

Rain chances this weekend with warmer temperatures headed our way
The speed of falling temperatures and redevelopment of rainfall Sunday morning could prompt changes in the forecast, Smith said. Temperatures will also plunge, with lows of -2C leading to a widespread frost and icy stretches on the roads.

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.

Trump on Ex-Aide Accused of Abuse: 'We Wish Him Well'
Porter had been a rare staffer inside the White House who knew Washington , was widely respected and was seen as good at his job. On Thursday, amid the growing controversy, Shah said Porter had cleaned out his desk that morning and would not be back.

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.
