Arsenal aim to end six-game winless Premier League run vs

Empty trophy cabinet looms over Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham says former Arsenal forward Alan Smith

Arsenal, who are sixth in the league 12 points behind leaders Manchester City, host third-placed Tottenham Hotspur in a tightly-contested north London derby on Saturday.

Despite the Arsenal manager's non-committal response, Lacazette seems nearly certain to regain his starting place after Wenger confirmed Olivier Giroud was likely to miss the match with the injury he picked up on worldwide duty last week.

Tottenham finished above Arsenal in the Premier League last season for the first time in 22 years, and Sherwood believes that his former club are now the dominant team in north London.

Spurs, meanwhile, haven't been particularly successful against Arsenal away from home.

While Tottenham have begin to redress the balance in north London after years of Arsenal domination, they are without a victory at the Emirates for seven years.

The last time Arsenal defeated Spurs in the league was on March 16, 2014, when Tomas Rosicky's second-minute strike - a goal manager Arsene Wenger described afterward as one that "will go in my collection of great goals" - held up as the victor in a 1-0 victory at White Hart Lane.

He has gone from strength to strength ever since, having won the Premier League Golden Boot in the past two seasons with 25 goals in 2015/2016, and 29 goals in 2016/2017.

Cech added: "They've been there in the last few years so now I think they have to make sure they win something to show the progression".

"For 20 years", Wenger said, before smiling.

Morgan, who is also known for his passionate rants about Arsene Wenger on Twitter, once claimed in 2015 that Harry Kane was not even good enough to get on Arsenal's bench.

The 24-year-old has already scored 10 goals in all competitions for Tottenham so far this season to help the Lilywhites up to third place in the Premier League table. "So that does not mean today we are above Arsenal". Just a shame we didn't push him to that end earlier.

And how does the defence cope with Harry Kane, should the Spurs ace be fit to play?

Meetings between the two teams in the Premier League have resulted in an average of 2.82 goals per game, with both teams scoring in five of the last six contests.
