Tottenham Hotspur are all set to Arsenal on Thursday in a heated London derby as both teams battle for a top-four finish.

Spurs are coming off a 1-1 draw with Liverpool that left them in fifth place with 62 points.

Meanwhile, Arsenal beat Leeds United 2-1 to bring them up to 66 points with three games left to play.

A three-game losing run over the Easter period threatened their European ambitions but Arsenal have bounced back with 4 consecutive wins over Chelsea, Man United, West Ham and Leeds.

Antonio Conte’s side are unbeaten in 7 matches at home and are confident they can avoid defeat and realize their Champions League dream.

Arsenal cruised to a 3-1 win the last time these two sides met in the reverse fixture last September.

This London derby has way more on the line and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.
