There isn’t long until the first North London Derby of the season kicks off at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
The Gunners will be looking to pick up the three points required to overtake Spurs in the Premier League table.
Both teams will be going all out to win the match but Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has refused to say whether or not key man Mesut Ozil will be playing in the match.
“I don’t know because tomorrow is the last training, but every player is very important with their qualities,” Emery said in his pre-match press conference.
“We need to continue preparing and continue improving in our work and as a team with bigger performances and individual quality. I will prepare for the match with every player.”
