Spurs look to extend recent derby dominance

Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur – Premier League – Emirates Stadium – Sunday 4:30pm – Preview

Tottenham Hotspur will extend their unbeaten sequence to six matches over their nearest and dearest if they can avoid defeat at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

The Lilywhites have returned to form of late, recording three-successive victories in the Premier League with a further two in the Europa League.

Jose Mourinho is expected to make several changes to the side which overcame the Croatian league leaders, Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday evening, with Gareth Bale, Toby Alderweireld, Sergio Reguilon, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Lucas Moura all expected to return to the starting line-up. Meanwhile, Harry Kane should be available despite leaving the action on Thursday following a heavy challenge.

Spurs currently occupy seventh place in the Premier League table – five points off the top four, but seven better off than the Gunners who are tenth.
