Tottenham and Arsenal will look to keep their slim European qualification hopes alive when they clash in the north London derby on Sunday at 4:30 PM.
Spurs limped to a disappointing 0-0 draw against Bournemouth last time out and have won just two of their five games since returning to action — a run which has left Jose Mourinho’s side ninth in the table.
Arsenal, meanwhile, drew 1-1 with Leicester City but unlike Spurs, that stalemate extended their unbeaten run to five games. As a result, Mikel Arteta’s men are eighth, just two points adrift of sixth-placed Wolves.
Champions League qualification is likely beyond both of these sides now but a spot in next season’s Europa League is still up for grabs. However, with just four games to go, it’s now or never with the loser likely having to settle for a year without continental competition in 2020/21.
The last two north London derbies have ended in draws, which is simply not good enough for either side this time, so expect another entertaining affair in this lively rivalry.

Tottenham & Arsenal’s confirmed line-ups and live stats:
Tottenham & Arsenal’s previous line-ups:
- Tottenham (vs Bournemouth): Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Davies; Lo Celso, Winks, Sissoko; Lamela, Kane, Bergwijn.
- Arsenal (vs Leicester City): Martinez; Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac; Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Tierney; Saka, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Eric Dier will serve the second of his four-match suspension while Dele Alli remains doubtful with a hamstring problem. Japhet Tanganga and Juan Foyth are both injured.
Eddie Nketiah is suspended after his quickfire red card against Leicester last time out while Matteo Guendouzi also won’t feature. Mesut Ozil is a doubt with a back problem and Arteta will also be without Bernd Leno, Calum Chambers, Pablo Mari and Gabriel Martinelli.
Player to watch:
Along with Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one of three players defending their Golden Boot title this season and as such, the Gabonese striker is the closest of the trio to doing so.
Aubameyang netted Arsenal’s only goal in their 1-1 draw against Leicester last time out to extend his record to 20 in the Premier League so far, just two behind current leader Jamie Vardy.
Those 20 goals account for 40% of Arsenal’s Premier League goals this season and only Southampton’s Danny Ings (44%) has a higher individual contribution to his team’s goals so far in 2019/20.
Aubameyang has scored three goals in four Premier League appearances against Tottenham since joining Arsenal in 2018 and Mourinho will have to be guarded against the former Dortmund striker once again.

How you can get 80/1 odds on Harry Kane to score first in the North London derby:
When Harry Kane gave Spurs a two-goal lead from a penalty in the previous NLD, he became the fixture’s joint-leading scorer in all competitions with 10 goals alongside Emmanuel Adebayor. This of course means he is one goal away from setting a new record and Arsenal have only kept one clean sheet in their last 10 Premier League away games against their biggest rivals.
