Finally, Arsenal have a striker with ferocious pace to lead the line.

Arsene Wenger's side now sit four points adrift of Spurs who rescued a late draw at Liverpool last week.

So impressive is Aubameyang's record, it's actually better than a number of Arsenal legends including Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie.

Played at Wembley, Spurs revelled in an iconic FA Cup semi-final victory over the Gunners, inspired by a stunning long-range free-kick from Paul Gascoigne.

Wenger will be desperate for a similar result on Saturday as the Gunners continue their bid to force their way back in to the top four.

Arsenal thrashed Everton 5-1 at home at the weekend but their away form has been poor this season and Tottenham will be looking to give them another uncomfortable game on the road on Saturday.

Kane has more than taken revenge with a fine record against Arsenal, scoring six goals in seven North London derbies. The forward ironically started his career for the Gunners, but was released at the tender age of eight - he eventually found his way to Tottenham.

Sublime Kohli guides India to crushing win
After being asked to bat first, Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan led the charge for India after departure of opener Rohit Sharma on duck. Nevertheless, India totally dominated the second half of the innings with Mandhana reaching her century in the 40th over.

"I don't encourage my players to dive".

Alderweireld had earlier described his delight to the club's official website: "I worked hard in the last couple of months to get to this point". "I think he is happy with the project with Harry Kane and Dele Alli".

'I remember the first time we played against Arsenal ... and even back then, I had a chip on my shoulder.

"I think we are in the middle of the season and they are top-quality players, so why should they not repeat that type of performance?"

Arsenal manager Wenger has already escaped the wrath of the Football Association on the subject this season after claiming Raheem Sterling "dives well" following a 3-1 defeat at Manchester City in November.

Just days after Arsenal were lurching towards another crisis, Arsene Wenger can suddenly look to a brighter future thanks to a revitalised attack spearheaded by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The former Dortmund pair wreaked havoc on the Toffees defence which would have excited Arsenal fans and given them hope of breaking into the top four.

January signings Aubameyang and his former Dortmund team-mate Henrikh Mkhitaryan both excelled against Everton, the Armenia global recording three assists after moving to Emirates Stadium as part of a swap deal with Manchester United for Alexis Sanchez. Both of them had a great game against Everton as the Gabon worldwide scored on debut while the Armenian picked up a hat-trick of assists.
