Arsenal players showed no signs of pressure as they trained on Friday ahead of the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal trained on Friday ahead of the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.

The match will be played at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, and hosts Gunners will be determined to win it and maintain their challenge for the Premier League title.

Arsene Wenger’s side will head into the game on the back of a 2-1 home defeat to Southampton in the third round of the League Cup on Tuesday.

However, the Frenchman will not be too bothered by that result as he made a number of changes to his starting line-up.

Wenger also saw Arsenal return to winning ways last weekend when they got the better of Aston Villa 3-0 away from home with ease.

Both Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck were on target at Villa Park, and the duo will be crucial to Arsenal’s chances of winning yet another North London derby on Saturday.

The Arsenal players trained on Friday to prepare for one of the biggest fixtures in the football calendar in England, and it seems that they were relaxed and chirpy.

Below are the best photos from Arsenal’s Friday training session:
