Nov 20, 10 Arsenal vs Spurs

North London Showdown

Arsenal will climb to the top of the Barclays Premier League with a win over their North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. Well only for the next few hours at least as Chelsea are playing at 3pm.

The match which is the early kick-off 12.45 on Saturday lunchtime will be an extreme encounter for both teams as they are both in brilliant form after 13 games into the season.

The Gunners can take over their London counterpart Chelsea only if they win after back-to-back victories away against Everton and Wolves.

The last time these two came across each other in the Premier League was at White Hart Lane last season where Danny Rose scored a wonder goal which will lie deep in the memories of dedicated Spurs fans. Since then, players such as Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and new big-name signing Rafael Van Der Vaart have all blossomed into excellent football players.

Spurs manager,Harry Redknapp, has a strong belief with the strength in depth they have this season will be the crucial credential of tackling for honours this season.

Unconsistent Gunners, have been the surprise this season, by staying in touching distance of the leaders, especially since the money of Manchester City, the new owners of Liverpool, the spur from Tottenham have all come in to close the gap at the top.

Likely line-ups:

Arsenal

: Fabianski, Sagna, Squillaci, Djourou, Clichy, Song, Wilshere, Fabregas, Nasri, Walcott, Chamakh.Tottenham

: Gomes, Hutton, Gallas, Bassong, Assou-Ekotto, Modric, Palacios, Jenas, Bale, Van der Vaart, Crouch.
