Tottenham Hotspur defender Danny Rose has revealed how manager Mauricio Pochettino turned the crucial North London Derby (NLD) game to Arsenal’s favour.
Both teams met for their second league meeting this season at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon with both sides earning a share of the spoils at the end of the game.
England international Danny Rose talked about the game in his recent interview monitored by popular media portal Goal.
He revealed how the halftime team talk from Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino changed the game in their favour.
Arsenal had outclassed their North London rivals in the first half of the derby match and they were good value for the 1-0 lead courtesy a 16th-minute breakaway goal from Aaron Ramsey who was playing his last North London Derby game.
Tottenham Hotspur didn’t play well in the first 45 minutes but all that changed in the second half.
Danny Rose revealed that his manager’s team talk was like he was sending them to war.
The rallying cry from Mauricio Pochettino worked in the end after star striker Harry Kane scored a 74th-minute penalty to earn a 1-1 draw for his team.
Arsenal could have won it in the last minute but for the penalty save made by Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris from substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
