Tottenham vs Arsenal: Prediction, team news, line-ups, start time, live, TV, head to head, odds - Premier League preview

ALEX YOUNG

Tottenham face Arsenal today as White Hart Lane hosts what will be the final north London derby at the famous ground.

Spurs' temporary move to Wembley was confirmed in the days leading up to the kick-off of what will the biggest meeting between the two sides in recent memory, perhaps longer.

Spurs are seeking to finish above their fierce rivals for the first time since Arsene Wenger's appointment 21 years ago, boasting a team arguably superior in most positions for the first time in decades.

An FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester City has made slight amends for Arsenal's dire league form this season, as they go into the game in fifth place and 14 points behind Spurs - but boosted by Manchester United's home draw to Swansea.

TEAM NEWS

Tottenham earned a hard-fought win over Crystal Palace with no fresh injury concerns, while Danny Rose has returned to training this week.

Ben Davies has deputised, to praise, in Rose's three-month absence but Mauricio Pochettino hinted at a return for the England international on Sunday.

Laurent Koscielny is a doubt after suffering a knee injury during Arsenal's own tense Wednesday night victory, over Leicester City.

Speaking after the game, Arsene Wenger said the centre-back will be assessed ahead of the short Sunday trip to N17.
