Thought Hector Bellerin’s first head-to-head competition with Dele Alli was good? Well today’s your lucky day.

The pair recently took part in a five shot challenge with Copa 90, with Alli coming out on top. Click HERE to see that video.

Eager to get revenge on his Tottenham foe, Bellerin reunited with Alli for another battle - one that was inspired by the Call of Duty video game.

It’s not as crazy as it sounds. Bellerin and Alli aren’t running around a battlefield in some fierce warfare.

Instead, they’re striking footballs that are dropped from a drone, attempting to hit one of three targets in the net.

It sounds fun, and it looks it too.

So Bellerin, a right back, beats Alli, an attacking midfielder, in a contest that assesses shooting. Who’d have thought it?

North London derby

The two will compete in an even bigger challenge this coming Sunday when Arsenal host Tottenham Hotspur in the first north London derby of the season.

Easily one of the most anticipated fixtures of the Premier League season, Arsenal versus Tottenham has been helped by Tottenham’s rise to serious title contenders.

Mauricio Pochettino’s team is the only unbeaten side left in England’s top flight, and victory at the Emirates will put them level on points with the Gunners.

Tottenham's problems

Things aren’t completely rosy at White Hart Lane, however. Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Leicester City was Spurs’ third straight stalemate in the league, while they haven’t won a game in any competition since October 2.

Though Pochettino is aware of his team’s struggle, he was quick to ensure fans not to panic.

When asked if he had endured a more difficult spell in his managerial career, the Argentine replied: "I don't remember having one,” via Sky Sports.

Tottenham have been hit by injuries to a number of key players, including Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld, while Erik Lamela is suffering from illness.

"It is hard because the players come, maybe not injured, but with many problems and maybe play two games and with the small problems we have with Toby Alderweireld, Harry Kane, Sissoko's suspension and Erik Lamela on Saturday," Pochettino continued.

"Yes it is true it is a tough period when you play, play, play that you need all the squad available, but you need to adapt to the competition and we are happy.”

Perhaps the last thing Pochettino wanted to see on the fixture list was a game at the Emirates. But just think what victory will do for his players’ confidence.
