Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur - Premier League
Arsenal won the first encounter between these sides back in November

The North-London derby is one of the most anticipated matches in modern football and it suffices to say that the rivalry has become even more intense since Tottenham Hotspur have become direct rivals for Arsenal under the management of Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs find themselves four points clear of Arsenal in the table going into the final part of the season and will be looking to extend their advantage at every possible opportunity. On the other hand, it's a crucial match for the Gunners whose top-four ambitions will be more or less crushed if they return with anything but a win. Hence, Arsenal need to give it their best shot by putting out a great side. The Gunners are expected to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation with the following players.
