Arsenal`s Gabriel says everything surrounding the derby is different, from preparation to the game itself.

“What they tell me about the history and importance of derbies is that it`s a rivalry that is really big, it`s also about the history that Arsenal has of giving all it has in every match, of being determined.”

“I think you enter the pitch differently in a derby, you prepare yourself during the week in a totally different way. You go in with your head thinking differently and everything is very different.”

‘You`re much more focused and the same happens with the rivals. That`s what makes it such a difficult, complicated game for both sides.”


It`s going to be a huge game tomorrow, we can keep up at the top of the table whilst putting some considerable distance between ourselves and Spurs.

NLDs are always nerve wracking, and this game will be no different.
