Premier League frontrunners Arsenal brace for what's being hailed as "the biggest North London derby for 20 years" as they square off against fierce rivals Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday. With the Gunners eyeing their first Premier League title in two decades, a victory would solidify their position at the top, evoking memories of Arsene Wenger's Invincibles securing the title at White Hart Lane in 2004. However, Spurs, buoyed by a fervent home crowd, are poised to play spoiler, aiming to thwart Arsenal's title aspirations while boosting their own quest for a top-four finish.

Despite facing a formidable defensive opponent, Tottenham head coach Ange Postecoglou emphasizes the importance of sticking to their attacking philosophy. He asserts that maintaining their style of play is crucial, especially during the pivotal stages of the season.

On the other side, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta urges his players to set aside the intensity of the rivalry and focus on delivering a performance befitting the occasion. Despite recent fixture congestion, Arteta emphasizes the need to approach the derby with passion and intensity, highlighting its significance in the title race.

As anticipation mounts for what promises to be a historic showdown, both teams understand the magnitude of the moment, with the outcome likely to have far-reaching implications in the race for Premier League glory.
