This match was initially scheduled for January but postponed, Tottenham and Arsenal will finally clash in a potentially season-defining derby on Thursday night. A win for Arsenal confirms Champions League football and a win for Tottenham reduces the gap to a single point.
Mikel Arteta’s side have significantly turned the tide winning four straight matches on the back of three losses.
Antonio Conte has got his team back on the right track and they look deadly on the counterattack. Arteta will be wary of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski.
That said, the pressure will be on Conte to close the gap between his side and Arsenal to one point. He’ll be hoping that the pressure does not get to his players and affects their performance on the day.

Tottenham vs Arsenal team news
Asides injured Sergio Reguilon, Japhet Tanganga, Oliver Skipp and Matt Doherty, Tottenham will have the remainder of their squad available for the clash.
As for Arsenal, Ben White who has now missed the last two games with a tight hamstring problem might miss out of the fixture, alongside Bukayo Saka, who was forced off in the win over Leeds.
The Spaniard’s pre-match fears over the duo could very well just be a red herring, but Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney will watch on from the sidelines, with Takehiro Tomiyasu likely deputising for the latter on the left once again.
With Rob Holding performing well since his recall to the first XI, Arteta may be tempted to shift White over to right-back for the derby if he is passed fit, as the prospect of Cedric Soares coming up against Son Heung-min is not a pleasant thought for Arsenal fans.
