Harry Kane set to feature in Tottenham squad for north London derby

And with different styles, you guessed it, come different managers - and in many ways they don't get much more different than these two. He's very close but it was a very slow recovery, it was a very painful thing that happened.

He scored his first Champions League goal as Arsenal came from 2-0 down to beat Ludogorets in Sofia on Tuesday night and progress into the last 16 for the 17th straight season.

"It's embarrassing for me". Having lost two games in the Champions League already this season, Keown doubted that Tottenham will bounce back from the midweek defeat in his Daily Mail column. He has an infectious character. [Olivier] Giroud will play his part.

"You know the rivalry between Tottenham and Arsenal, if Spurs win it would be great for the fans, great for the points situation but it's so tight up the top there. I still feel this area could be improved", he added. Meanwhile our beloved Arsenal have won 5 out of our last 6 (in fact 10 out of our last 11).

However after Wednesday's 1-0 home loss to Bayer Leverkusen, it can be said that Spurs' domestic form has not been replicated in Europe. "It was hard to recognise the team, (normally) very aggressive, very calm under pressure, and today was completely the opposite".

Only a poor finish to the end of last season cost Tottenham a finish above their rivals, a feat they last achieved in 1994-95.

The Chile global added that Arsenal have a lot of ambition to win the title this year, having missed out on a real opportunity as Leicester City ended up as surprise champions in May.

Spurs have been struggling with injuries of late, with Harry Kane, Toby Alderweireld, Mousa Dembele, Erik Lamela and Danny Rose all suffering, but Lloris is making no excuses for their winless run.

Kane has been on the sidelines since suffering the injury against Sunderland in mid-September but the striker is now back in contention this weekend - although Pochettino has yet to decide whether he'll start the England worldwide on Sunday.

But can Arsenal turn expectation into three points as they look to continue their fine form?

Arsenal have gone nine league matches unbeaten since their opening weekend defeat to Liverpool and are in a good position to challenge for their first league title since 2004.

Arsene Wenger is a 67-year-old veteran of the Premier League, managing the same club for 20 years with three league titles, six FA Cups and a Champions League final under his belt.

No need, then, for anyone to pin him up against a wall.
