Tottenham will be looking to keep the pressure on Chelsea when they entertain Arsenal at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.

Spurs kept their title dreams alive with a late 1-0 win at Crystal Palace in midweek which moved them back to within just four points of Chelsea after they had beaten Southampton 24 hours earlier.

Not only would a ninth league win in a row keep Tottenham in touch at the top but it would also ensure they finish above their north London rivals for the first time in over 20 years.

Arsenal make the short trip across north London having secured a late 1-0 win over Leicester City in midweek which moved them to within five points of fourth-placed Manchester City with a game in hand.

Therefore, Arsene Wenger knows he needs to take away a positive result from his final visit to the Lane in order to boost their chances of qualifying for the Champions League next season.

Team News

Tottenham will hand a late fitness test to Mousa Dembele after the midfielder was forced off against Palace with a minor ankle injury.

Danny Rose is back in full training but he’s not ready to make his return after recovering from a serious knee injury that’s kept him out since late January.

Michel Vorm is set to return to the squad after recovering from a knee injury but Erik Lamela and Harry Winks won’t play again this season.

Arsenal will make a late call on Laurent Koscielny after the defender sustained a knee problem in midweek but Shkodran Mustafi is still two weeks away from full fitness.

David Ospina could be back in the squad after a back problem but Lucas Perez and Santi Cazorla are still absent.

Predicted Score

Tottenham 2-1 Arsenal: The pressure is firmly on Spurs to get a result here if they want to keep their title dreams alive and they will be right up for this game given it’s the last NLD at White Hart Lane. Tottenham are certainly the club in form right now and they haven’t lost their last five league meetings with Arsenal. I think Spurs will edge this one as I just can’t see Arsenal matching their intensity.
