Tottenham boss Conte: My first NLD will be massive; we must win for fans

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte says he wants to deliver victory over Arsenal to the home fans tonight.

Spurs need a win to keep their top four hopes alive.

Conte said, "It's my first north London derby and I know very well what this game means for this Club for our fans. We have to know very well what it also means for the table for us at this moment. We are fighting for a place in the Champions League, we are in this race with Arsenal.

"We are doing a really good job to stay in this race. At the same time, I want to try to give satisfaction to our fans, they deserve this type of satisfaction in a tough game, a derby against Arsenal.

“It's a massive game. We are talking about a game with two important teams, Tottenham and Arsenal. It will be interesting to see the way we finish this game, for sure. Arsenal, they have the same idea, for sure, to try to get points and take a place in the Champions League, and they are doing very well.

"They have worked with this coach for many years, and they are going to improve year by year. At the same time, we're on a good path with my team. We've improved a lot. To arrive at this point with three games to go, with the possibility to fight for a big achievement, we have to be proud, and try until the end to get the best possible result.

"The derby is always a difficult game. If you play Juventus-Torino, Milan-Inter, Roma-Lazio in Italy... in London, there are many derbies, and, for sure, the rivalry with Arsenal is very high. It's a special derby. You have to try to give your best from the start until the end, to be focussed, great concentration, to enjoy the game as well, but you have to know that this derby is very important for us, and for the table."
