But I don't believe I would in this transfer window, it's not a very big possibility with the players. "In a derby, maybe this emotion is greater", Emery said.

When asked if he'd contemplate offloading Ozil in January, the former Sevilla boss said: "My focus now is analysing this match and also Saturday against Burnley is very important". "It was a decision made by the club following a meeting I had with the player".

"It was tactical. I thought the players with us were the best for this match". When you win it's unbelievable, when you lose it's frightful. This competition (Europa League) for us is very important because it's a title, and in this way it's also a way to get into the Champion's League next year, ' he explained. However, Emery urged his side to react positively against their neighbours: "We need to improve".

With the focus firmly on Pochettino following the sacking of Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho - the Spurs chief played down questions linking him with the vacant Old Trafford post: "After almost five years a lot of rumours have happened in my position as manager of Tottenham. Southampton was not a good result but it gives us more motivation for continuing to work hard".

A simple riposte - but one that's more than good enough to earn the England striker, who came off the bench to help seal Tottenham's win, a shower of praise from Spurs fans.

Tottenham's loss in their last visit to Arsenal is the only time they have tasted defeat in 11 games.

Pochettino insists Tottenham's improvement during his reign means they no longer need to be obsessed about making derby victories the highlight of their season.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur clash for the second time in three weeks tonight when they go head-to-head at the Emirates for a place in the semi-finals of the League Cup.

"We can show this emotion with respect when we are playing but also when they scored against us, they can show their emotion with their supporters".
