But Pochettino’s side have improved a lot in recent years while closing the gap as their north London derby resumes today.
This fixture is known for producing a lot of goals in recent years as Spurs are now unbeaten at the Emirates for three years running.

Tottenham Hotspur’s is less than half. Club sources claim Spurs’s new 61,000 seat stadium, ready for 2018-19 with up to 9,000 corporate places, can match that in time.
Harry Kane is likely to feature for the his side after making a return from the sustained injury.
