The Gunners currently sit fourth whilst Spurs are just two points behind their hated rivals – both will see this as an opportunity to get a leg up in the race for Champions League qualification.

This will be Arsene Wenger’s 45th derby, having only lost six during his time as boss and although this is just Mauricio Pochettino’s second, his side did manage to snatch a draw at the Emirates Stadium earlier this season.

Both will want the win to gain the derby bragging rights for this season but which side will come out on top? CaughtOffside takes a look at five key battles that could decide this fiesty affair.
