Alan Brazil predicts Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur

Alan Brazil predicts Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur

The 26-year-old has started all six of the Premier League games he has featured in thus far and had started the season in fine form, scoring three goals in his first five appearances.

Mousa Dembele says he is ready for the special "vibe" of the north London derby next weekend as he targets trophies with Tottenham.

In 2015 Arsenal only just pinched second place in the League by the skin of their teeth when Tottenham collapsed in the final games of the campaign, but Spurs got their revenge in style last season when they made sure of their second-place finish and ended 11 points ahead of a very disappointing Gunners side, that failed to even make the Champions League.

Tottenham Hotspur central defender Jan Vertonghen was held out of Tuesday's 3-3 worldwide friendly draw with Mexico after he tweaked his ankle in training with the Belgium national team earlier in the week.

'There is always one odd year where things can change, but the most important thing for us is competing against the other teams for the Premier League title and for the glory. Success is ultimately winning trophies.

"Two years ago when we finished above them we were disappointed because we didn't win the title", he explained.

Among those, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have repeatedly been criticised this season for allegedly showing little interest for the Arsenal cause after they both failed to commit to new deals at the Emirates.

The first North London derby of the season kicks off on Saturday when Spurs travel to the Emirates in the first Premier League game after the worldwide break ends.

But Cech doesn't believe that to be the case.

Parlour is a big fan of how they do things too, having previously praised Harry Kane, he is also a fan of Tottenham's style of play and ability to beat a high calibre of teams. "With the quality of Alexis and Mesut you are always happy to have players like this in the team".
