Nuno Espirito Santo looking forward to his first North London derby, praises Oliver Skipp

Speaking in the press conference (h/t Football.london) ahead of the Arsenal game, Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo spoke out on his first North London Derby and had some words of praise for Oliver Skipp. This will be the first time he takes charge of the derby and described how he saw the game.

Nuno is in need of a win in the Premier League. He has had to see his side get mauled by Chelsea and Crystal Palace in the last couple of league games with Tottenham looking meek in those outings. However, with the bragging rights on the line in the North London derby, Nuno seemed to be hyped up and prepared for the game.

He labelled the game as a tough one and also acknowledged the contrasting form of both sides.

“It’s not another game. It’s a special game. A special game for us, a special game for our fans. It’s going to be a tough match but no doubt, it’s a different game. We expect a tough match. Recent weeks [they had] better results, this is the assessment we make. We have to try and get the right info to the players to deliver.”

Oliver Skipp has been one of the more consistent names in the side after being given a run in the first team under Nuno. The gaffer was quick to praise the youngster but felt that he should not be burdened with expectations so early when asked about a future captaincy role.

Nuno added that he and the coaching staff are trying to help and develop in the right manner so that he can help the side.

“I like very much Skipp and I think you can see it. Since we arrived he was injured and the way, the commitment he showed even during the recovery of his injury and he started the pre-season working very hard. He’s helping the team. He’s a young boy that is doing well.”

A performance similar to the one at Wolves in midweek might be required if Nuno wants his first win in the North London derby. He will need his star men to step up and show that they still have the hunger and desire to bounce back.
