Arsenals head into the clash in mixed form, their quarter-final win over Everton marred by their exit from the Champions league at the hands of Bayern Munich.

The 1-1 draw midweek in Germany came at a price however with Mesut Ozil joining Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey on the treatment table.

The German International injured his hamstring in the 1-1 draw with Bayern midweek and is now set for an extended spell of up to six weeks on the side-lines.

“We lose Ozil, who has been injured for Sunday, I don’t know how long he will be out but it looks a minimum of three weeks,” Wenger said in the build up to Sunday’s game.

“When the minimum is three, (then) the maximum is six. I am not specialist enough to know, it is a grade two hamstring (tear), so let’s say four weeks.”

The absence of Ozil could be offset by the inclusion of Kim Kallstrom with the Swedish star poised to finally make his debut at White Hart Lane.

Wenger will also have Nacho Monreal available after he missed the game with Bayern although Thomas Vermaelen will be confident of keeping his place after a strong performance in the Allianz Arena.

Spurs meanwhile have lost their last two games to Benfica and Chelsea and they have are sweating on the fitness of Kyle Walker. The England right back is struggling with a pelvic injury and could join Michael Dawson in the stands.

Dawson suffered a hamstring injury in the 4-0 defeat to Chelsea last time out and is definitely not available.

Roberto Soldado, Andros Townsend and Danny Rose could all return to the starting line-up failing to start the 3-1 Europa league defeat to Benfica while Belgian midfielder Mousa Dembele is also in contention to start.

In addition to being without Dawson, Manager Tim Sherwood will also be minus the services of Etienne Capoue (ankle), Erik Lamela and Vlad Chiriches (both back).

This game needs just two goals to become the Premier League’s all-time highest-scoring fixture and given that Spurs have kept four clean sheets at home in their last five games Sherwood will be hopeful that can claim a first derby win as manager.
