Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino spoke to reporters during his pre-match press conference ahead of the North London Derby tomorrow, and shared how his side are in great spirits heading into the contest, as quoted by popular football news website Football.London.

Tottenham head into the game at the Emirates three places and four points clear of Arsenal, and many fans and pundits expect them to take all three points from their bitter rivals tomorrow.

It will be far from easy though, with many of Pochettino's key men listed as doubts for the game, and Arsene Wenger's side in desperate need of a victory themselves.

The Argentine addressed the media ahead of the North London Derby, and opened up on the positive atmosphere currently emanating from his side's training sessions, as quoted by Football.London:

"They arrive in very good condition. Today there was a lot of laughing, the atmosphere is very good in the training session. We talk before, we think they miss a lot each other. That is good for us."

Ahead of such a big game, it could be argued that a more serious approach to training sessions is required, and with Spurs' poor record against top-six sides, the 45-year-old might just have left himself open to criticism with his latest comments.

Pochettino has worked wonders during his time in charge of Tottenham, and one of his main strengths is how he manages to keep everyone amongst his squad happy, and that will be more important than ever, ahead of one of his side's biggest, if not the biggest games of the season.
