Nacho Montreal also appears to be healthy, and-in case anyone cares-Danny Welbeck is available for selection.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino described Harry Kane as “a blessing and our future” after his victor in Saturday’s clash with Arsenal.

Tottenham are now seven points clear of Arsenal in the table, with the Gunners having lost eight games already this season.

“At Wembley you play special games where you are under pressure to perform and we responded well to it every time”. In football if you don’t kill the game you will concede chances and suffer.

‘I am not a great fan of the Europa League being a qualifier for the Champions League because I think it is not right.

“I can not say if they look stronger or not than they were since their new signings”. The English striker has been in sublime form this season, scoring his 100th Premier League goal in Spurs victory against Liverpool. Here are five things we learned from the 1-0 loss.

The Gunners had the better of the opening stages against Tottenham, before Harry Kane sent a good headed chance over the crossbar.

Setting aside the intense rivalry between the two teams, today’s game is a big one for the top six as a whole.

The England global has won back-to-back Premier League Golden Boots and is on track to better his tallies of previous campaigns. “We knew it was a hard moment in terms of the whole process of the club but we went through it”, Pochettino said. Last season it was Mauricio Pochettino’s side which came up trumps with a 2-0 win but this season promises to be a different ball game altogether.

Arsenal now turn their attention to their Europa League last-32 clash with Swedish club Ostersunds on Thursday. If he gets hold of Harry Kane, he doesn’t score.

Arsenal have been unspeakably bad away from home, so it’s tough to see Spurs losing this one.

However Arsene Wenger is winless in all four league away matches against Mauricio Pochettino but the Arsenal manager can take plenty of encouragement from their recent record at Wembley where his side are unbeaten in their last nine matches.
