Gary Neville’s claim Tottenham fans will love about the north London derby atmosphere

The Manchester United legend said the atmosphere at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium was the best he’d experienced in the Premier League this season.

Gary Neville has commentated on a lot of Premier League matches for Sky Sports this season.

However, according to the Manchester United legend, none had an atmosphere that could rival the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as Spurs demolished Arsenal.

Even before the kick-off the noise was deafening, and Tottenham fans unveiled an incredible tifo which read “dare, dream, do”.

And the atmosphere in N17 clearly got to Gunners defenders, who cracked under the pressure.

First, Cedric barged into Spurs hitman Son Heung-min in the box, and after Paul Tierney pointed the spot Harry Kane dispatched with ease.

Then, Rob Holding gave away three fouls on Son in minutes and was booked.

Moments later, the centre-back barged the South Korean in the head with his shoulder and was shown a second yellow.

Kane bagged his second later in the half, before Son moved closer to Salah in the golden boot race after the break - and wrap up all three points.

That sent Spurs fans into delirium, and Sky Sports commentator Neville noticed.

Towards the end of the second half, Martin Tyler noticed and asked the former Manchester United full back: “Is this the best atmosphere this season?

And Neville replied: “The best [atmosphere] I’ve seen without a shadow of a doubt.”

He continued: “If they’re [Tottenham] looking for a sponsor they’ll never see it better than this, absolutely incredible.”

And Spurs talisman Harry Kane agreed.

After the game, he was asked whether it was the best atmosphere at the new stadium and he agreed.

The striker said: “I think so, you could really feel the anticipation building up on the coach on the way in.”

Now Spurs are just one point behind the Gunners, and have the better fixtures with just two games to go.
