Tottenham Hotspur defender William Gallas says noting but a victory is acceptable when Spurs travel to rivals Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.

The former Gunners captain will lead out Andre Villas-Boas’ side in a north London derby where both sides are desperate for a win after disappointing results last weekend.

Arsene Wenger watched his Arsenal side throw away a 2-0 lead for the second time in four days on Saturday in the 3-3 draw with Fulham, while Spurs gave up a one-goal lead at Premier League champions Manchester City and lost to a late Edin Dzeko goal.

Gallas thought the White Hart Lane club deserved something from the game at Etihad Stadium and wants it rectified when they go to Emirates Stadium.

“It is the big derby. We need a good result there. We have to do something. It was a good opportunity to beat Man City. They were not really strong,” he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“We could have got something from the game. We could have played better, we couldn't keep the ball very well and that was maybe the key of the game.”

Arsenal’s season was transformed the last time Tottenham made the trip up Seven Sisters Road, coming from two goals down to run out 5-2 winners in the end and will be hoping for something similar this time around.

Spurs and Arsenal have both failed to get going properly so far this season and are lying in sixth and seventh respectively, separated by a single point.
