Tottenham
Tottenham's talisman Harry Kane faces a race against time to be fit for this one, having picked up an apparent muscle injury and subsequently missed out in midweek.

Mourinho has stressed that he does expect his forward to play, but the Premier League's leading assist-maker this season will need to be assessed ahead of kickoff.

Should he pass that late fitness test then history beckons, with Kane needing just one more goal to become the outright leading scorer in the history of the North London derby.

Kane's partner in crime Son Heung-min played 82 minutes on Thursday night and netted his 12th goal of the season in all competitions - behind only Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Kane himself among Premier League players.

Kane's back-up striker Carlos Vinicius also has a question mark hanging over his head, but Mourinho is hopeful that the Benfica loanee, Sergio Reguilon and Toby Alderweireld will be fit for this one.

Alderweireld suffered a groin injury against Man City last month and has not featured since, but there is a chance he could be ready for this match. Erik Lamela is Tottenham's only guaranteed absentee.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Sissoko, Hojbjerg; Son, Ndombele, Bergwijn; Kane

Arsenal
Arsenal were able to welcome long-term absentees Pablo Mari and Calum Chambers back on Thursday night, while Sead Kolasinac also shook off a problem to start.

The Gunners are still without the suspended Nicolas Pepe, but they could be boosted by an early return for Thomas Partey, who is set to be back in training ahead of this match.

David Luiz will also be assessed ahead of kickoff after the sickening clash of heads between himself and Raul Jimenez last weekend.

The decision to allow Luiz to play on in that game was widely condemned, but Arteta has opened the door to him featuring again this weekend if the scar is healing as expected.

Gabriel Martinelli, meanwhile, is nearing a comeback and is expected to play for the Under-23s before making his first-team return early next year.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Leno; Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Bellerin, Ceballos, Elneny, Saka; Willian, Lacazette, Aubameyang
Arsenal Premier League form: LLWLDL
Arsenal form (all competitions): WLDWLW

Head To Head
Tottenham's 2-1 victory in the corresponding fixture last season, when Alderweireld scored a late winner, means that Spurs could win back-to-back Premier League games against Arsenal for only the third time in the competition's history here.

Spurs are also now unbeaten in their last six top-flight home games against their near neighbours stretching back to 2014 - their longest such run since a nine-game streak from January 1960 to January 1968.

There could be a place in history for both managers this weekend too; Arteta is looking to avoid becoming only the second Arsenal boss ever - after Bertie Mee in 1966-67 - to lose his first two North London derbies, while Mourinho is looking to become only the second Spurs boss - after Jimmy Anderson in 1955-56 - to win his first two.

Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 Arsenal
