Mauricio Pochettino on the Arsenal game and Alexis Sanchez's absence


Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino says Saturday's home game against Arsenal is shaping up to be a special game.

Spurs are only two points below the Gunners in the table and will be determined to leapfrog their rivals in what is expected to be a mouthwatering game at White Hart Lane.

"I think it's a special game," Pochettino said.

"It's a special game because we speak about emotion. For our supporters it's a very special game, and for us it's the same.

"This is the type of game where you need to put your heart onto the pitch and we are ready for that.

"This week we can feel that it's a special game for our players, and then it's football, it's a game. But the feeling is good and this is the most important thing – that we believe in our way and we're ready."

Arsenal will be without star man Alexis Sanchez but the Argentine says there are other dangerous players in Arsene Wenger's squad.

"Alexis is a very good players but Arsenal have other players," he said.

"[Danny] Welbeck, [Olivier] Giroud, [Theo] Walcott, [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain and [Mesut] Ozil - a lot of names, a lot of players.

"Alexis is a very good player but Arsenal have players to replace him."

Asked if there are any injury concerns in the team, Pochettino said: "All the players are available and this is a very good thing for us.

"It's difficult for me to now pick the 18 players, but it's better to have that competition.

"It's important for all the team to be fit and available for Saturday."
