Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal: match preview

Tottenham have laboured in recent weeks and it feels as though they must win this one to keep their Champions League dream alive. They have a decent record at home to Arsenal of late and when they won the corresponding fixture last season, there was talk of their rivals being in a "negative spiral". Arsenal, though, fought their way back from the crisis, which has become a speciality of theirs. Blood and thunder looms. David Hytner
