Home Form Vital For Arsenal, Says Wenger

Arsene Wenger's side face a real tough test in the north London derby this Saturday (12.30pm).

Should they trip up, there's no doubt questions will be raised over whether Pochettino and his men can go all the way on the main stage - after all, the Argentine remains trophy-less at Tottenham.

Kane has scored in all five of his Premier League appearances against Arsenal, netting six goals in total.

For the first time in 22 years, Tottenham finished above their bitters rivals, sealing the Gunners' fate in a 2-0 win at the Lane.

Despite being a rival fan, Morgan admits he is a huge admirer of Kane, and urged him to "come home" to Arsenal.

There was concerns over whether the English striker will be available for Tottenham's clash with Arsenal on Saturday, but Pochettino has dispelled these fears.

If he is given a start at the weekend, Arsenal's diminutive forward will have to put in a good performance to persuade his manager that he can do it against the best sides in the league.

Arsenal Spurs PS

Arsenal head into Saturday's game looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after their 3-1 defeat by Manchester City at The Etihad before the worldwide break.

Tottenham's Harry Kane ranks third all time in north London derby goals.

Wenger is hopeful the 32-year-old will return in January. "They were great (in the) Arsene Wenger era, and I think for us it's a massive challenge to stay there and to be competitive against a team that, in the last 20 years, wins more trophies than us".

Arsenal last thumped Tottenham?

He added, "Two years ago when we finished above them we were disappointed because we didn't win the title".

Pochettino had mixed news on the injury front, saying that Toby Alderweireld might be out until January because of a hamstring problem but that Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Harry Winks and Hugo Lloris had returned to training after injury.

Arsenal will be without injured striker Olivier Giroud, while Wenger has to decide whether to recall Alexandre Lacazette to the team after leaving the France worldwide out of two big games this season already, at Liverpool and Man City.
