Home Form Vital For Arsenal, Says Wenger

Arsenal v Tottenham Betting Tips: Big Match Preview

Tottenham is heading into a north London derby on Saturday Nov. 18, against Arsenal as a clear favorite for the first time in decades.

Should they trip up, there's no doubt questions will be raised over whether Pochettino and his men can go all the way on the main stage - after all, the Argentine remains trophy-less at Tottenham.

Despite the Arsenal manager's non-committal response, Lacazette seems nearly certain to regain his starting place after Wenger confirmed Olivier Giroud was likely to miss the match with the injury he picked up on global duty last week.

Arsenal face Tottenham on Saturday and Lacazette is expected to feature, with his agent alleviating fears over his standing at the Emirates Stadium.

Harry Kane has scored in all five of his Premier League north London derbies, netting six goals in total.

In the last seven Premier League meetings between these sides at the Emirates, the side scoring first has only gone on to win once - with Arsenal securing a 1-0 win in September 2013 thanks to Olivier Giroud's goal.

"No, not at all", he said, when asked if he thought Arsenal will be the underdog on Saturday.

"They've been there in the last few years so now I think they have to make sure they win something to show the progression".

"For 20 years", Wenger said, before smiling.

Moments earlier at the news conference Thursday, Wenger had interrupted a reporter who pointed out that Arsenal had dominated Tottenham for a "long time".

They sit in third place in the Premier League and are top of their Champions League group.

The Gunners have won more trophies in recent seasons, but Sherwood insists his old side are close to winning silverware.

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

"We did it with Sol Campbell so we can do it again - Harry Kane's a Gooner and we will get him back".

Arsenal's record signing has only completed 90 minutes once since his summer arrival but Wenger says there is no lack of trust.
