Tottenham have a series of injury doubts ahead of the crucial clash, with a host of big-name players having sat out the worldwide break.

Despite Tottenham finishing ahead of Arsenal last season for the first time in 22 years, Cech believes that a lack of trophies at their bitter rivals undermines any progress that Tottenham have made under Mauricio Pochettino.

Ahead of Saturday's North London derby, Arsene Wenger was questioned as to whether he felt his side were "underdogs".

Pochettino is yet to win a trophy for Tottenham whereas Wenger has three Premier League titles, the most recent in 2004, and seven FA Cups with Arsenal, although they missed out on this season's Champions League.

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. For what seems like the first time in decades, Tottenham is widely regarded as a clear favorite even though the match is taking place at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium.

"I think Tottenham is a good side but we have the quality to win this game and that is what we want to show".

Wenger is hopeful the 32-year-old will return in January.

Arsene Wenger has confirmed Arsenal will be looking to stop Harry Kane in particular on Saturday.

Yet no team has won more Premier League away games in 2017 than Tottenham, who have earned 10 victories away from home this year.

And Wenger says Arsenal will have to assess the situation on Monday. It was five years ago (almost to the day) that the Gunners ran five past their rivals in a thrilling show at the Emirates that ended in a 5-2 win. Just a shame we didn't push him to that end earlier.

Arsenal, meanwhile, lost to Manchester City last time out and are in danger of falling further behind in the race for a place in the top four.

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

Lacazette has only completed 90 minutes once since his summer arrival from Lyon.
