Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal

Cech suffered a calf injury in Saturday’s 5-1 win over Everton and was substituted by Ospina after 71 minutes

In 2002 my vision about English football - you laugh, because you know what I will say - I didn't touch Michael Owen [at the World Cup] and he dived.

Tottenham comes into this game one place and four points better off than their London rivals, in fifth on the Premier League standings.

And, with new boys Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan making their maiden north London derby appearances and Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli in the midst of a diving storm, the Arsenal manager cautioned his players to stay focused.

The Spurs centre-back had been sidelined with a severe hamstring injury he picked up during the club's 3-1 win over Real Madrid in the Champions League in November 2017.

Tottenham have shaken off their early teething problems at their temporary home and are unbeaten in their last 12 league games at Wembley - showing similar form to last season when they were invincible at the now demolished White Hart Lane.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal will be played on Saturday, February 10, 2018.

Spurs go into the North London derby as the more in-form team, with their last league defeat coming back in mid-December when they succumbed to a 4-1 loss away to Manchester City.




Wembley is a happy hunting ground for Arsenal's current generation as well. This is despite a challenging start to the season in which they were beaten by Chelsea and held to draws by both Swansea and Burnley at the national stadium. While Tottenham will feel at home at Wembley after a string of good performances and a famous win against Manchester United, Arsenal will be no pushovers.

"Of course Wembley is a pitch that is quality, a stadium with a big crowd and it is always a special day in your mind so overall, yes".

Aubameyang scored on his debut in a 5-1 thrashing of Everton, and could be the 20-goal-a-season striker Arsenal have been looking for for so long.

Since Pochettino took over at the club ahead of the 2014-15 season, his side have beaten Arsenal only twice in eight tries. Tottenham finished fourth but missed out on the Champions League as Chelsea won the tournament, Redknapp was unceremoniously sacked and - despite the unfortunate reality that Chelsea were champions of Europe - things seemed to have turned out for the best as far as Arsenal fans were concerned.

"I think he will be ready, maybe to be in contention for Saturday", the Argentine told the club's official website.

"He is starting to feel the legs". He is only young but is such an important member of this scintillating team and we don't need him suspended from matches.
