Tottenham vs Arsenal: Premier League preview

Both have yielded impressive improvements from their sides and have eyes on Champions League qualification although, barring a late Chelsea collapse, Europe’s elite competition will only likely be big enough for one of them.

Arsenal travel to Tottenham knowing three points would take them back into the big time, although could not face a more difficult task to reach the big time.

Conte is a master at pulling a result out of the bag in these kind of one-off big games, as both Manchester City and Liverpool have found out since the turn of the year.

The north London derby, of course, needs little in the way of added spice but the fact the game was postponed at Arsenal’s request in January infuriated Spurs.

Finally, months on from its original date, the two will meet. The Champions League surely awaits the winner.

Here’s everything you need to know.

Tottenham vs Arsenal team news

Tottenham could be without Sergio Reguilon for the rest of the season due to a groin problem, with Conte complaining about having just 15 players available for the season’s run-in.

Oliver Skipp remains injured along with Japhet Tanganga and Matt Doherty.

Largely, the Italian’s first-choice starting XI picks itself with little in the way of surprise changes expected as things stand.

Arteta, meanwhile, is confident Ben White will return to the starting lineup after missing Arsenal’s wins over West Ham and Leeds. The Gunners boss also confirmed Bukayo Saka is fit despite coming off for the final twenty minutes in Sunday’s win at the Emirates.

Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey are long-term absences.

Tottenham vs Arsenal prediction

Tottenham simply have to win and certainly boast the kind of attacking talent to damage Arsenal. Still, as strong as Spurs are at home under Conte, Arsenal have learned how to grind results out.

1-1 draw.
