Arsenal aim to end six-game winless Premier League run vs

This derby has seen a changing of the guard in recent years as Tottenham have overtaken Arsenal as North London's best team - but they don't have the greatest record in this match away from home.

"Our target is to win the title and be successful during the season, not necessarily looking at what Tottenham are doing".

Tottenham's Harry Kane has scored in all five of his Premier League games against Arsenal and has scored six goals total, including a brace in a 2-1 win at White Hart Lane on February 7, 2015.

With Spurs' injury problems I'm tempted to side with Arsenal at odds-against but it is hard to write off Tottenham with the likes of Denmark's hat-trick hero Christian Eriksen among their ranks. They now sit third in the Premier League and are through to the last-16 of the Champions League.

"No, not at all", he said, when asked if he thought Arsenal will be the underdog on Saturday.

While Tottenham have begin to redress the balance in north London after years of Arsenal domination, they are without a victory at the Emirates for seven years.

Arsene Wenger insists Arsenal are not the underdogs ahead of north London derby against Tottenham

"Not at all.I think Tottenham is a good side but we have the quality to win this game and that is what we want to show". They enter Saturday in danger of doing that for the first time this year, having also lost at Old Trafford on October 28.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has previously overlooked the French striker when naming his starting line-up to take on the bigger teams in the division, and with close rivals Spurs coming up this weekend, there is calls that he should be given the nod for the crunch match. That might not happen this season.

Cech has insisted that finishing above Tottenham this year is not their priority.

Pochettino, who hasn't been on the losing side in six meetings with Arsenal as Tottenham manager, accepted that history does count when assessing the relative merits of the sides. 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. We must respect them.

Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Harry Winks all withdrew from the England squad with injuries while Hugo Lloris and Toby Alderweireld were also missing for France and Belgium respectively.

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.
