Former Arsenal defender, Gabriel Paulista has described Arsenal’s matches against Tottenham, as a war.
The defender joined Valencia last season, spending three years and winning two FA Cups and Gabriel knows the importance of the match.
“When I played against Tottenham, during the day ahead of the game it felt completely different to playing any other team,” Gabriel told Sky Sports.
“It was a kind of war. As soon as I arrived in London, I was told I could lose to any other team apart from Spurs.
“Arsenal have got much more history than Tottenham and that means they should be above them.
“But Spurs have been improving every season and the coach is fantastic and they have great players too.”
