With no due respect to the Carling Cup semi-finals, this is the biggest North London Derby since April ’06 when the two sides met at Arsenal Stadium. Henry kept our Champions League qualification hopes alive with seven minutes to go. Tonight a draw isn’t good enough for either side.

Arsenal Starting XI: Almunia, Sagna, Campbell, Vermaelen, Clichy, Denilson, Diaby, Nasri, Rosicky, Eboue, Bendtner

Arsenal Bench: Fabianski, Silvestre, Merida, Eastmond, Walcott, Eduardo, van Persie

Tottenham Starting XI: Gomes, Assou-Ekotto, King, Dawson, Bale, Rose, Huddlestone, Kaboul, Modric, Defoe, Pavlyuchenko

Tottenham Bench: Crouch, Bentley, Alnwick, Livermore, Walker, Gudjohnsen, Bassong

Mark Clattenburg will be the head official for tonight’s clash. I hope neither set of supporters will have reason to feel aggrieved by the ref come 10 o’clock.

The match will be on Sky Sports 1 in England and ESPN2 in the States.

Enjoy the match Gooners! Up the Arse!
