Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Arsenal

Gus Poyet

Spurs face rivals Arsenal in the north London derby at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday and Sherwood is predicting a "comfortable" win for his old team.

Arsenal have not beaten third-placed Tottenham in the last six league meetings but Wenger remains confident they can beat their local rivals.

Tottenham finished above Arsenal in the Premier League last season for the first time in 22 years, and Sherwood believes that his former club are now the dominant team in north London.

Ian Wright has labelled Alexandre Lacazette a "predator", and states that he should start every Arsenal match.

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

"Not at all", said the Arsenal manager when asked if his side are the outsiders for victory this weekend.

Striker Harry Kane has been in outstanding form for Spurs this season and has scored six goals in six Premier games against the Gunners.

Arsenal head into Saturday's game looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after their 3-1 defeat by Manchester City at The Etihad before the worldwide break.

"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", he told reporters.

"I wish [he returns in January]".

Tottenham, which finished third and second in the last two seasons of the Premier League, is already eight points behind first-place Manchester City and is out of the English League Cup.

And Wenger says Arsenal will have to assess the situation on Monday. "Although the season was not always what we wanted, we always had a trophy at the end of it".

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.

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's record signing has only completed 90 minutes once since his summer arrival but Wenger says there is no lack of trust.
