Spurs 'process' about more than trophies - Pochettino

This weekend, Tottenham and Arsenal kick it all off in Saturday's early match.

"That four point gap, if Arsenal were to win, suddenly it puts Tottenham under massive, massive pressure".

Arsenal had a busy transfer window as they replaced the outgoing Alexis Sanchez with two signings in Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang.

Ahead of this game, Pochettino told the club's official website: "It will be an wonderful game and we are so excited because we know what it means to play the derby". While the talents on the pitch are undoubted, we are still failing to realise that Arsenal's defense is still the same as it was.

And he is the seemingly obvious man to be preferred in attack by Arsene Wenger, as Lacazette continues to flatter to deceive.

Now Pochettino sees more similarities with how clubs on the continent operate. With confidence high, Pochettino must start Victor Wanyama. Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea - even allowing for the Stamford Bridge side appearing to be in crisis - all have winnable games.

With Toby Alderweireld back playing in midweek, Tottenham have no injury issues to worry about, according to Physioroom.com.

The thing about Tottenham at Wembley has been simple.

"Having spoken to a lot of strikers that would have certain records against certain teams. they just feel good in that particular game and they end up excelling and scoring - I think it does make a difference". In 2002 my vision about English football - you laugh, because you know what I will say - I didn't touch Michael Owen [at the World Cup] and he dived.

Pochettino, whose side could momentarily leapfrog Chelsea into fourth spot with a win, has been impressed with what Moura has shown in training and the winger could line-up against the Gunners at Wembley Stadium. They had resorted to defending deep after Marcos Alonso scored the opener.

Nacho Monreal is expected to recover from his illness in time for Saturday, but both Danny Welbeck and Petr Cech will undergo late fitness tests before the match to determine whether they can play. Hopefully we'll do it more times than them!

We're two thirds of the way through the Premier League season, and the action (except for the title race, obviously) is only getting better. It also leaves Pochettino with a bit of a headache, albeit one which the Spurs manager has been longing for all season. That's how they managed to beat Real, Dortmund, Liverpool and United.

Gary Lineker doubled their advantage five minutes later, tucking the ball home from close range to finish off a neat passing move, before striker Alan Smith pulled one back for Arsenal with a header before the break.
