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

ALEX YOUNG

Tottenham face Arsenal on Sunday as White Hart Lane hosts the final north London derby at the famous ground.

Spurs' temporary move to Wembley has been confirmed and now all eyes move to the biggest meeting between the two sides in recent memory, perhaps longer.

A win for Tottenham will confirm a finish above their fierce rivals for the first time since Arsene Wenger's appointment 21 years ago and will serve as a fitting final derby result for the hosts.

A FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester City has made slight amends for Arsenal's disappointing league form this season, they go into the game in fifth place and 14 points behind Spurs. It's more than pride at stake on Sunday.

TEAM NEWS

Mousa Dembele faces a race against time to be fit for Sunday. The midfielder is struggling with an ankle injury picked up against Crystal Palace.

Meanwhile, Danny Rose is unlikely to feature despite returning to training after three months out with a knee problem.

Erik Lamela (hip) and Harry Winks (ankle) are both unavailable but goalkeeper Michel Vorm has recovered from a knee injury and is available again.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Lopez, Rose, Davies, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Dier, Wimmer, Walker, Trippier, Wanyama, Dembele, Eriksen, Alli, Sissoko, Onomah, Son, Janssen, Kane.

Laurent Koscielny suffered a knee injury in Wednesday's win over Leicester and is rated at only having a 60 per cent chance of playing at White Hart Lane.

Provisional squad: Cech, Martinez, Macey, Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal, Gibbs, Maitland-Niles, Coquelin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Walcott, Iwobi, Sanchez, Giroud, Welbeck.
