One of the biggest question marks and uncertainties is whether Toby Alderweireld will crack Spurs' Premier League starting 11 for the first time since going down with a slight hamstring tear nearly four months ago. To do that they'll have to fix their bad away form. Sam Allardyce started the Republic of Ireland captain in the 2-1 win over Leicester on January 31st but the Everton boss decided against playing Coleman against the Gunners after 10 months on the sidelines.

"If it is not going to work with Xhaka in midfield then why not take the game to Tottenham and play with total possession?" You need time to adapt, you won't sleep well for the first few nights.

Pochettino confirmed that Toby Alderweireld will be back fit for the club on Saturday and that comes as a massive boost, considering how good Arsenal's attack is.

Tottenham are fifth in the Premier League with 49 points from 26 matches and take on sixth-placed north London rivals Arsenal tomorrow.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are without the injured Santi Cazorla. The club previously won both derby games during the 2013-14 season.

If he does choose to adopt this formation, Pochettino knows that he can easily modify the lineup so that it shifts into a 4-3-1-2 - the formation he used against Manchester City earlier in the season.

Following an incredible debut with Arsenal last weekend, where he notched up three assists, Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be looking to continue his stunning form away at Wembley.

But in the Premier League he has been the clear second choice, having made just 23 appearances in the competition since joining in 2014. The fact that they can extend the lead to 7 points above their bitter enemies will be extra motivation which will help them in getting over the finish line.

The Arsenal manager admitted that goal for goal there is no better striker in Europe than Tottenham's Harry Kane.

Alderweireld is aware that facing Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has scored four goals in four games against Spurs, will be a hard challenge for a player just back from injury.

On the other hand, Arsenal have had an indecent spell.

The Gunners have won the FA Cup three times during that spell, and the route from the Emirates to Wembley is certainly a well-trodden one. He'd love to start a new scoring streak against them while winning in the process.
