Tottenham captain William Gallas has called on his side to bounce back from their disappointing defeat at Manchester City by overcoming Arsenal in Saturday's north London derby.

Spurs are now seventh in the Barclays Premier League, three points adrift of Everton and West Brom in fourth and fifth respectively. This weekend's derby against Arsenal, who are one point behind them in eighth, begins a sequence of key fixtures for Spurs which includes games against West Ham, Liverpool and Everton.

And Gallas knows victory against his former club is vital, saying: "It is the big derby. We need a good result there. We have to do something."
