Tottenham host Arsenal in what is one of the most important North London Derby's of the past few seasons on Mar. 3, 2013. This year Tottenham finally have the chance to finish ahead of Arsenal by a rather impressive margin if they continue the great run of form that they are currently riding.
The play of 23-year-old Welsh sensation Gareth Bale has been off the charts and the player was justly awarded the February Premier League Player of the Month award and his manager Andre Villas-Boas we equally regarded for his club's form with the February Premier League Manager of the Month award.
However, now it is back to business on Sunday as Spurs will be looking to pull on over on their most heated rivals. Arsenal have had an up and down season, while Tottenham have managed to persevere through injuries, set backs and more and continue to shine on all fronts and a win would see them move back to third place in the English Premier League table with ten games to go.
American forward Clint Dempsey is doubtful for the match while Tom Huddlestone is expected to make a return to the bench. Defender Younes Kaboul is still believed to be out of contention while Sandro is done for the campaign.
It is sure to be a great match up and Tottenham will fancy their chance to take three points at home in front of their beloved fans at White Hart Lane.
Projected Tottenham Starting XI: Hugo Lloris; Kyle Walker, Michael Dawson, Jan Vertonghen, Benoit Assou-Ekotto; Scott Parker, Moussa Dembele; Aaron Lennon, Gareth Bale, Lewis Hotlby; Emanuel Adebayor.
