'Amazing': Tottenham boss Antonio Conte delivers his honest verdict on Arsenal before the NLD

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has conducted his press conference ahead of the north London derby clash with Arsenal.

The Premier League is back this weekend and gets underway with a huge battle between the bitter rivals at the Emirates Stadium.

Whoever wins this game will go top of the Premier League table. Arsenal are currently at the summit but Spurs are one of only two remaining unbeaten sides in the division.

Conte was asked about Arsenal, as you would expect, ahead of the game and gave his verdict on Mikel Arteta’s Gunners.

Conte conducts press conference before facing Arsenal

Conte said of Arsenal: For sure we are talking about a really good team and in this summer they made good signings for them.

“Their start has been amazing, for this reason we have to pay great attention and we know the difficulty of the game.”

Last time Spurs and Arsenal met, Conte got the better of Arteta at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, winning 3-0 en route to clambering into the Champions League spots.

Both sides have strengthened their squads since then and Arteta will be looking for revenge for last season’s hugely damaging loss given the chance on home turf on Saturday lunchtime.

Conte is the more experienced manager but it is Arsenal who have been playing the better football on the whole this season.

It will be a fascinating game as we embark on a frantic period of fixtures between now and the World Cup, and what a way to kick it off.
