Piers Morgan sends message to Harry Kane ahead of Arsenal v Tottenham

When pressed on whether he would start against Spurs in Saturday's north London derby, Wenger added: 'The decision is not made yet.

It shouldn't be forgotten that it was Arsenal which ended last season with a trophy - the FA Cup - and Tottenham's critics argue that Mauricio Pochettino's team need to win silverware as a form of validation of its progress.

Arsenal have not beaten third-placed Tottenham in the last six league meetings but Wenger remains confident they can beat their local rivals.

And although Arsenal have won their last 10 Premier League games at the Emirates - their longest winning run at home since the stadium opened in 2006 - they have gone four home league games against Spurs without a victory, having last won on September 1, 2013. For what seems like the first time in decades, Tottenham is widely regarded as a clear favorite even though the match is taking place at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium.

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

Tottenham fans have been discussing a "powershift" in the north of the London following last season's league standings.

Arsenal head into Saturday's game looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after their 3-1 defeat by Manchester City at The Etihad before the global break.

"I think Tottenham are a good side but we have the quality to win this game and that's what we want to show".

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has previously overlooked the French striker when naming his starting line-up to take on the bigger teams in the division, and with close rivals Spurs coming up this weekend, there is calls that he should be given the nod for the crunch match.

"Wenger was an innovator, ahead of everyone, like Ferguson", said Pochettino, who has masterminded Tottenham to third- and second-placed finishes in the last two seasons.

"For 20 years", Wenger said, before smiling. We must respect them.

Spurs go in to the showdown at the Emirates as slight favourites, with Harry Kane and Dele Alli both back from injury.

Alexandre Lacazette was heralded as the saviour of Arsenal when he was brought into the club from Lyon during the summer.
