Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has dismissed insinuations that he is supporting Arsenal, after seeing his team overtake Manchester City, ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side clash with Unai Emery’s men on Sunday.
Spurs brushed past Newcastle 1-0 on Saturday to move up to second, one point ahead of Manchester City.
However, despite moving 10 points clear of their North London rivals, Pochettino still doesn’t want them to do him a favour.
Asked whether he’d cheer on Arsenal to cement second place behind Liverpool, Pochettino told Sky Sports: “No! Why? Never! No. I will watch the game and won’t be on one side or another. I am going to watch the game and accept whatever the result is.
“I am only going to watch the game and I’ll be happy with the result that’s they’re going to have.”
Meanwhile, Arsenal will be gunning for a victory against last season champions to push themselves back in contention for a spot in next seasons UEFA Champions league after seeing London rivals Chelsea trash Huddersfield 5 goals to nil.
