Tottenham Hotspur manager, Mauricio Pochettino, has said he would “never” cheer on Arsenal, after seeing his team overtake Manchester City, ahead of the champions’ clash with Unai Emery’s men on Sunday.
Spurs beat Newcastle 1-0 on Saturday to move up to second, one point ahead of City.
But 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.”
