The club have not finished above the Gunners since 1995 yet despite the imminent departure of Gareth Bale, Andre Villas-Boas is not overly hopeful of surpassing Arsene Wenger’s side but of ultimately mounting a title challenge.
Arsenal meanwhile epitomise the fast moving nature of the Premier League going from a team in disarray, following their opening day loss to Aston Villa, to Champion’s League group stage qualifiers with a win over Fulham sandwiched in between.
Unlike big spending Tottenham, Arsenal fans have had to do with free transfers Yaya Sanogo and Mathieu Flamini and the transfer market frustrations have proved to be a real cloud hanging over the club as the clock counts down to September 2nd.
Work continues behind the scenes to add top class talent but with moves for Gonzalo Higuain, Luis Suarez, Wayne Rooney and a host of other top stars all failing there is a real feeling that this is the year that Tottenham overtake their rivals and rule North London.
For the moment Wenger must make do with the players at his disposal and with a lengthy injury list that includes Thomas Vermaelen (back) and midfielder Mikel Arteta (thigh), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby and now Lukas Podolski (hamstring), the French man heads into the clash minus some big name players.
Wenger can at least welcome back Laurent Koscielny to the squad following suspension and he is expected to go straight back into the starting line-up. Flamini is also expected to be in the squad after re-joining the club midweek on a free transfer. The versatile midfielder will begin the game on the bench with the in-form Aaron Ramsey recovering from a groin strain sustained in the midweek win over Fenerbahce.
Tottenham meanwhile could be without Aaron Lennon as he struggles with a foot injury although definitely out are Benoit Assou-Ekotto and striker Emmanuel Adebayor.
Gareth Bale won’t feature as he closes in on his world record move to Real Madrid with his replacement Erik Lamela is unlikely to feature.
Fellow new signing Vlad Chiriches is set to watch from the stands although Jermaine Defoe and Lewis Holtby will be hoping their goal-scoring appearances against Dinamo Tbilisi see them start premier leagues games for the first time this season.
The action gets underway at 16:00 GMT.
