Mauricio Pochettino’s men managed to salvage a point against Liverpool thanks to a 95th-minute penalty from Harry Kane. But the Lilywhites will be itching to get back to winning ways when they take on Arsenal in the London Derby this weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur are sitting 5th on the league table just one point behind Chelsea. Arsenal though are not too far down the line and are just 4 points behind Spurs. This means that if Wenger’s side manages to pick up a win they will bring down that gap to just two points.
SPURS VS ARSENAL TEAM NEWS:
The Belgian international Toby Alderweireld is set to make a comeback after recovering from a long-term hamstring injury which kept him out of the squad since November. 21-years-old Colombian international Davinson Sanchez deputising alongside Jan Vertonghen for these days.
