Wembley will feel like home for Arsenal, says Merson

"I think we have to look to our own performance and try to win our games", he added.

Spurs have only lost one of their last seven games against Arsenal.

Saturday's early Premier League kick-off sees fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal come face to face.

Mauricio Pochettino's side - and in particular, the manager himself - have been painted as the villains in the wake of their dramatic 2-2 draw at Anfield.

Another person I'm desperate for us to drop is Iwobi, who will most likely start this game too.

The teams are set apart by four points in the table and Spurs will be eyeing this game to extend the lead to 7 points over their arch-rivals and move into the top 4.

Their rocky patch at the end of past year appears to be fully behind the club and Mauricio Pochettino's side come into this game unbeaten in 11 games, most recently seeing off Manchester United 2-0 before drawing 2-2 with Liverpool and overcoming Newport County 2-0 in an FA Cup fourth-round replay.

Arsenal and Tottenham are separated by just four points in the Premier League, and with Chelsea on a poor run of form, both will feel optimistic about their chances of qualifying for the Champions League.

Wright has also backed Arsenal to win the North London derby against Tottenham 3-2.

In order for Tottenham to do so, as they now sit fifth in the top flight, Pochettino's men will have to displace either Liverpool or Chelsea, all the while holding off any advances from Arsenal as they head towards the business end of the season. They seem to have clear goal in mind, which is qualifying for the UEFA Champions League for a third straight season.

Kane thrives on the big stage, averaging nearly a goal per game in his seven previous meetings against Arsenal.

The former England player told Daily Mail, "If Arsene Wenger's objective is to win the game by dominating possession, then he should play Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey in midfield".

Arsene Wenger's side have not won a league double over Spurs since the 2007/08 season and were well beaten on their trip across London last term.

However, Arsenal are unbeaten in their last nine matches at Wembley Stadium, winning them all including two penalty shootouts. To do that they'll have to fix their bad away form. The meeting between the two in November was the first time he had started a game against the Gunners and not scored.
