Eric Dier knows he doesn’t have to talk up the North London Derby.

“As a game, it has everything,” said the midfielder who has been called into the senior England squad for the first time for the forthcoming friendlies against Spain and France.

Sunday’s latest encounter is likely to see Eric make his first start at the Emirates after coming off the bench in last season’s 1-1 draw in the Premier League.

“We’re in great form, they are in great form and it’s the derby,” said Eric. “It will be tough.

“Both teams like to go forward, we play a very intense style of football and they like to attack so it’s going to be a great game for the fans.

“Hopefully we’re the ones who are enjoying it at the end!”
