North London Derby! Tottenam vs Arsenal To Meet On Saturday @ 1:30pm (Drop Your Predictions & Win 10,000)

Tottenham and Arsenal face off in what could prove to be one of their most important meetings in years as they take the north London derby on the road.

Spurs beat Arsenal 2-0 in the last ever north London derby to be held at White Hart Lane back in April, and need a similar result this time around at their temporary home of Wembley Stadium.

The London rivals sit fifth and sixth in the Premier League table heading into Saturday’s early kick-off, and defeat for either side could leave their top-four hopes in dire straits.

But both teams head to Wembley in confident mood, with Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs taking four points off of Manchester United and Liverpool while Arsene Wenger’s new-look Gunners blew away Everton 5-1 at the weekend.

Toby Alderweireld is Tottenham’s only injury concern, with the defender back in training and likely to be in contention for the derby should he make an appearance against Newport in midweek.

Arsenal Boss Arsene Wenger faces a wait on whether Petr Cech will recover in time after a calf injury forced the goalkeeper off against Everton.

Nacho Monreal was substituted off early in the same game, but had been suffering with illness and is expected to face Spurs.

Lloris; Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies; Dembele, Dier; Alli, Eriksen, Son; Kane
