Overview

Arsenal come into this game on the back of a humiliating loss at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League. And with the number of injuries affecting the team, Arsene Wenger will hope that his team can recover sufficiently for the visit of Tottenham Hotspur.

The Gunners are on a good run in the Premier League and are currently level on points with pacesetters Manchester City and are only second owing to their inferior goal difference. It is a crucial clash for both teams as a win will give tremendous confidence for the remainder of the season.

Tottenham, meanwhile, are coming on the back of a 2-1 win over Anderlecht in the Europa League, and are also unbeaten in the Premier League since the opening day of the season.

Mauricio Pochettino has a fully fit squad to choose from, which will be their biggest advantage over Arsenal. The Gunners have already beaten Spurs once this season at White Hart Lane, in the League Cup, and the Argentine will hope his team can get their revenge on Sunday night.

What Managers Say

Arsene Wenger [on NLD memories]: "The energy, the intensity, the commitment, the happiness when you're [winning] – that's what remains with you."

Mauricio Pochettino: "It is true that our opponents have an advantage because they have one day more to prepare and recover but we cannot complain and we need to be ready. We need to be strong in our minds and try to win the game because we know what the derby means."
