Tottenham 2-0 Arsenal highlights: Son and Kane send Spurs top as Partey suffers another injury
All the action from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium as Spurs and Arsenal go head-to-head in a crunch Premier League encounter.
The gap between the arch rivals currently stands at eight points with Arsenal losing five out of their last eight league games.
However, form tends to go out the window in these games and the Gunners were unlucky to lose in the same fixture towards the back end of last season.
Jose Mourinho’s side have won four consecutive league games on the trot and sit one point behind first-placed Chelsea with a game in hand.
Arsenal, who have not recorded an away win against Spurs in the Premier League since March 2014, will be looking to transfer their 100 per cent record in the Europa League and produce a match-winning performance in a mouthwatering clash between two contrasting teams.
“If you ask me my favourite types of games when I was a player here, for sure I’ll tell you it’s the north London derby.
It’s a unique atmosphere, it’s a lot of passion and feelings involved. Emotionally, it’s a special game and you live. When you win it, you know the satisfaction that you bring to people, which is very necessary in these moments when people are suffering and having difficult times.”
Arteta is expected to bring Thomas Partey back into his squad following the Ghanaian’s return from injury, while Alexandre Lacazette will also be in contention to start following an impressive performance against Rapid Vienna on Thursday.
