Pochettino wants Tottenham Hotspur to be more aggressive against Arsenal in the north London derby.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino wants Spurs to be more aggressive at Arsenal on Saturday.

Pochettino who was appointed in the summer as Tim Sherwood`s successor is looking towards his first involvement in the North London derby, and will be hoping for a win after a 3-1 victory over Nottingham Forest in the third round of the Capital One Cup on Wednesday night.

“I know it’s a very important game for our supporters, a tough game,” Pochettino said in his pre-match media conference at Tottenham on Thursday.

“We need to be aggressive and show what we can do. I have played a lot of derbies when I was a player. Now I’m excited to be against Arsenal.”

Tottenham have lost their last three games at the Emirates Stadium and will be hoping to turn that around with a win on Saturday.
