In the last couple of years, Tottenham has been on top of the hill over Arsenal, but after Arsenals the last win over Spurs at the Emirates, the gunner fans are keeping their heads high.

Although a lot has happened after Arsenals win over Spurs since Arsenal are going into the game with a 3-2 loss against Southampton. Bernd Leno made a crucial mistake and allowed Saints to end their 22-match unbeaten spell.

For Spurs, they have really got the group together after the Derby loss. Winning three Premier League games and also going through in the Champions League after playing 1-1 against Barcelona, it feels like Spurs are on a high roll now.

For Arsenal, there are still some defensive errors in the squad, Konstantinos Mavropanos, and Rob Holding as we will be gone for a while. Shkodran Mustafi, Sead Kolasinac, and Hector Bellerin are a bit uncertain to play. The experienced defender Stephan Lichtsteiner, on the other hand, looks to be able to play.

On the injury list for Mauricio Pochettinos men, we have Moussa Dembele and Victor Wanyama still out of play. Davinson Sanchez, Serge Aurier and Jan Vertonghen are still uncertain to play. After some rest legs this weekend, Christian Eriksen and Heung-Min Son look to start against Arsenal.
