Kick-off is set for 4.30pm BST. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 1 and 1 HD. Live Radio coverage is available on BBC Radio 5Live. Catch the highlights on Match of the Day 2 on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10.20pm BST.

Overview

Spurs welcome Arsenal for the final north London derby at White Hart Lane before their stadium is demolished ahead of next season. Mauricio Pochettino's side will play all their home games at Wembley Stadium next season before moving into their brand new yet to be named stadium for the 2018/19 campaign.

Tottenham still have a good chance to end their final season at their home ground for the last 118 years with their first Premier League title as they trail leaders Chelsea by just four points with five games left to play. Spurs will have to win all their games and hope the Blues drop points in their upcoming games.

The Argentine manager has backed his team to chase down the leaders, and will be favourites going into the game against their arch rivals after having recorded eight straight victories. Mousa Dembele and Danny Rose are the only doubts for the game leaving the manager with a fully fit squad to choose from.

Arsenal come into his game fighting for a place in the top four and qualifying for next season's Champions League. Arsene Wenger's side are currently in sixth place – five points behind Manchester City – and will have to win all their remaining games to have a chance.

The Gunners are facing the prospect of finishing outside the top four for the first time under Wenger and in another first they are most likely to finish below Tottenham for the first time in 21 years. The Frenchman is under tremendous pressure and even taking Arsenal to their third FA Cup final in four years has not eased calls for him to step down at the end of the campaign.

The pressure will increase if they fail to get a positive result at White Hart Lane, but it will be a hard task to beat a team in form and motivated to chase down Chelsea for the title. Moreover, Arsenal could be without defensive lynchpin Laurent Koscielny, who suffered a knee injury during their midweek win over Leicester City.

Arsenal have not won at White Hart Lane since March 2014, while a win for Tottenham will ensure that they finish the season ahead of Arsenal.

What managers say

Mauricio Pochettino: "My feeling is now, when you are so close - only four points the gap - I will be very disappointed if we don't win the title. My challenge or my aim is not to be above Arsenal. My aim is to be above 19 teams and to be first, to be on the top.

"You cannot ignore Chelsea's game before us, but we played the day after they lost to Crystal Palace and it didn't affect our preparation," via BBC Sport.

Arsene Wenger: This is one of the only times where Spurs look in people's minds as the favourites. I expect an open, committed match with high pace and there could be goals as both teams play positive football.

"I don't think that the top three is decided. We have an opportunity to be in there only if we win our games, we don't have to speculate at all. There is a lot that can happen until the end of the season," via BBC Sport.
