Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger and Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino shared a moment ahead of last night's clash.
For a rivalry so bitter, Arsenal and Tottenham coaches Arsene Wenger and Mauricio Pochettino get on pretty well.
The two managers were pictured in the dugout at White Hart Lane last night embracing and sharing a warm conversation, delighted to catch up before their teams went into battle.
It is a stark contrast to the strong dislike bordering on hate that Arsene Wenger and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho have for each other.
The pair can barely look at each other let alone shake hands, with their shoving match last season at Stamford Bridge an over riding memory which will long sum up their rivalry.
Pochettino and Wenger have a respect for one another, with the Argentine telling SkySports last season he wants to emulate the Arsenal boss, by staying at Spurs for many years and building a legacy at the club.
His side may frequently come off second best to the Gunners, as they did last night, but there is no doubting Pochettino has the squad moving in the right direction.
