Bacary Sagna: 'North London derby will be magic'

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna expects there to be a magic atmosphere at the Emirates Stadium for the North London derby this Sunday.

Bacary Sagna has said that he expects there to be a "magic" atmosphere during this weekend's North London derby.

Tottenham Hotspur travel to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday to face Arsenal for the first time this season.

The defender told the Gunners' website: "This game is one of the highlights of the season because it is a derby, we know how important it is for the fans, the club and the players to win it. The atmosphere is just magic and it will be even more magic if we win on Sunday.

"Of course [Gareth Bale] was really important for their team but they have many other players. Most of them play for their national teams and we know it is not going to be easy but at the same time we believe it is down to us to play our football."

Spurs have lost 5-2 on their last two visits to the Emirates.
