Tottenham Hotspur will be looking to maintain their good run of form with victory over Arsenal in the North London derby this afternoon.

Spurs will head into the Premier League game against the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium in North London on the back of a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace at the Wembley Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side are very much in the race for the Premier League title this season, but they need to win against Arsene Wenger’s side in order to maintain the pressure on Manchester City.

Arsenal’s performances and results so far this season have been mixed, and it is hard to see Wenger’s side challenge for the Premier League title this term.

The Gunners, though, are still in the race for the Champions League places, and winning against Spurs will enhance their chances of doing that.

Wenger’s side are not in great form at the moment, but the players will be determined to step up their game against bitter North London rivals Tottenham this afternoon.
