TOTTENHAM VS ARSENAL: It is the London derby today. A massive game for both teams and given the positions they are in at the moment, the match holds a lot of importance. Both teams are in form and we are all set for a highly standard clash at White Hart Lane.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is in charge of his 700th game for Arsenal in the Premier League and will look at a win at any cost. Saturday`s game has been given an extra edge by the fact both clubs are pushing for a top-four finish and a place in next season's Champions League.

Both teams are in good shape, with Tottenham having lost only once in their last nine league games and fifth-placed Arsenal only once in their last eight. Harry Kane and Olivier Giroud will lead the line for Spurs and Arsenal respectively.

All eyes will be on Arsenal stars Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil who will try to influence the game in a large way. For Spurs Christian Eriksen and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be the key players to watch and with a packed stadium it will be an affair to remember.

Alexis Sanchez will miss the clash due to injury but Arsenal will be happy with a likely return of forward Danny Welbeck.
