Harry Kane is Europe's best admits Arsene Wenger despite derby tension

Petr Cech of Arsenal shows appreciation to the fans after the Premier League match between Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium

With Tottenham likely to score at other end (more on that in a moment), it's no surprise both teams to score is [1.44] and over 2.5 goals [1.57].

After drawing 1-1 in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final, Tottenham thumped Arsenal 5-1 at White Hart Lane for their first victory over their north London rivals in almost nine years. You know one against one on the same line he will beat you so you have to be very clever, read the situation and then try to beat him with your head.

The loss marked consecutive defeats in big away trips for Spurs - having lost to Manchester United previously - and left their title hopes all but over as Man City moved 11 points clear.

Arsenal are coming on the back of a hugely satisfying 5:1 win over Everton, where they completely dismantled their opponents with some ruthless attacking endeavour.

"It's a massive game - it's a north London derby", Alderweireld told talkSPORT.

But Arsene Wenger's side produced arguably their performance of the season to-date as goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez sealed all three points for the hosts. Yet Wenger, who also spoke out against Manchester City's England global Raheem Sterling earlier this season, believes it is English players who are guilty.

Kane is the logical pick in the goalscorer markets: the Tottenham talisman has netted six goals in six Premier League games against Arsenal, only failing to score in one of those games. To do that they'll have to fix their bad away form.

Here are three key battles, we should be looking forward to when these two teams collide in the Premier League this weekend.

Wenger's side have had to settle for Europa League football this term after they ended up in fifth place in the table last term.

"They know what's important and that's to focus on their performance".

The 28-year-old made his return to Spurs action on Wednesday night during the Lilywhites' 2-0 FA Cup win over Newport County at Wembley Stadium after enduring a lengthy rehabilitation.

The influx of attacking talent in the shape of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang means that Arsenal will play with a back four more often, particularly at home, but their personnel weaknesses at centre-back and the lack of a true defensive midfielder mean that the solution for away games is the back three.

With Toby Alderweireld back playing in midweek, Tottenham have no injury issues to worry about, according to

That being said, Tottenham defender Eric Dier will be tasked with the responsibility of stopping the Armenian. The past games on the road have not been kind to Arsenal, with losses to Swansea and Bournemouth looming in the mirror.
