Tottenham have received a massive boost ahead of the crucial North London Derby on Saturday after manager Mauricio Pochettino revealed that he has a fully fit squad to choose from for the game.

Arsenal visit White Hart Lane on Saturday and Spurs will be keen to buck the recent trend set by the Gunners. The Emirates Stadium outfit has won the last five encounters between the two clubs, which includes three from last season.

Both teams have been playing well in recent weeks and will be keen to get a win, as three points will boost both teams' chances of finishing in the top four.

Pochettino's team have had a patchy January, which saw them romp home to victory over league leaders Chelsea on New Year's Day, but were dumped out of the FA Cup by Leicester City.

This will be a worry for the manager, but the recent form of Christian Eriksen and the emergence of Harry Kane as a top quality striker will give the manager hope against their arch rivals, who are unbeaten in their last five Premier League games.

The manager admitted that having all the players available for selection puts him in a dilemma when it comes to selecting his 18-man squad, but has welcomed it, stating that it is a good sign to have all the players fit and ready for action.

"All the players are available and this is a very good thing for us," Pochettino said, as quoted on Spurs' official site.

"It's difficult for me to now pick the 18 players, but it's better to have that competition. It's important for all the team to be fit and available for Saturday," the former Southampton boss added.

On the other hand, Arsenal are without a few key players ahead of the clash, especially top scorer and in-form player Alexis Sanchez, and this will come as a big boost to the home side.
