This Sunday sees the first North London derby of the Premier League season and, with both teams coming into the fixture with just one league defeat between them so far this campaign, it is sure to be a high-pressure affair.
Arsenal, backed by home advantage and Spurs' current six-game winless run in all competitions, come into the game as slight favourites. However, with just three points separating the two clubs in the table and Tottenham unbeaten in the league all season, it is sure to be a tightly contested game.
One man who has lined up on both sides of the north London derby is former Spurs and Arsenal defender Sol Campbell and, heading into Sunday's clash, the ex-England centre-back has had his say on just how the Gunners can make good on their favourites tag.
Campbell, of course, has a checkered past when it comes to the two north London rivals.
Having started his career at Spurs and played over 300 games for the club over nine seasons, he burnt his bridges with the the Lilywhites by joining the Gunners on a free transfer in 2001.

Now a figure of hate amongst Spurs fans, it is perhaps no surprise that Campbell - a member of Arsenal's famous 'Invincibles' squad of 2003/04 - is siding with the red half of north London come Sunday.
Finding the advantage
At least, that is if Wenger instructs his side to use Spurs' high-intensity pressing style to their advantage.
"Arsenal will be geared up for Spurs’ pressing because you cannot do that relentlessly all of the time, only five or ten minute spells," said Sol Campbell, speaking exclusively to 888sport.
"They will be concentrating on how to get past the second press and that’s where you open them up."
According to Campbell, it will be the final stage of the game on Sunday where we could see Arsenal pull away from their bitter rivals.
"That’s why the last twenty minutes will be key because a side that has pressed will have spent up a lot of their energy.
"You have to get used to that frequency and be savvy, especially on a big pitch. Go between the lines."
Spurs fans won't take kindly to Campbell's assessment of a pressing style that has won them many admirers - and points - under Mauricio Pochettino.
However, their tactics have come into question in recent games. They took the lead versus Leicester City last weekend only to be pegged back after half-time and, in last night's crunch Champions League fixture against Bayer Leverkusen, they conceded in the 65th minute to lose 1-0.
Only time will tell which side gets the first bragging rights of the season but, in Campbell's mind at least, it looks to be the Gunners who have the advantage.
