Tottenham midfielder ready for big game against Arsenal on Sunday
A Spurs win in Sunday’s north London derby will see Andre Villas-Boas’ team make a big stride towards the Champions League next season.

Gareth Bale’s brace helped Tottenham to a 3-2 win at Upton Park on Monday night which means that they are four points clear of Arsenal, with an opportunity to go seven clear of their arch-rivals when the teams meet for a second time this term.
Gylfi Sigurdsson was the other Spurs player on the scoresheet against West Ham and the Icelandic midfielder believes that while the north London derby is a massive match, three points will not guarantee a top four finish.
“It is going to be a massive game for us,” said Sigurdsson.
“However, anything is possible in football. The league was won in the last minute on the last day, so even if we beat them it is not finished.
“First, though, we have to beat them to start thinking about that.
“It will be a great atmosphere. Hopefully we can get a win and stay above Chelsea.
“We want to get in to the Champions League, that is our aim. If we achieve that, we want to finish as high as we can.”
With Bale in the form of his life, the bookies make Tottenham favourites to take a strong grip of their Champions League destiny for next season and put a massive dent in Arsenal’s hopes of a top four berth.
