Hazard Champions League games hindering Chelsea

In the end, mostly fit for Arsenal and set to field a strong side at Wembley, their home away from home.

In both 2006 and 2013, the two club's battle for the Champions League went down to the final day of the season, so in some ways, this is familiar territory.

Arsenal have not lost at Wembley since Chelsea beat them there in the 2009 FA Cup with nine consecutive wins at the ground.

Despite early talk of a curse, Tottenham's recent record at the national stadium is also very impressive.

Leaders Manchester City have the chance to bounce back from being held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley when they host eighth-placed Leicester on Saturday. As for Tottenham, it's hard to know where to begin when recounting their last league outing.

Given the way Dele Alli played in the Liverpool game, this might be an option, allowing the England youngster the opportunity to play a supporting role behind Harry Kane with Christian Eriksen behind him. He more or less rejected the idea that this was a "must not lose" game, saying that they wanted to win it, and with a six-point gap to the Champions League places you can understand why.

Many investors justified that by pointing out that interest rates were low and few alternatives looked like better investments. The Standard & Poor's 500, the benchmark for many index funds, is also 10 percent below the record high it set two weeks ago.

Each of the last two North London derbies have seen one side go two goals up at some point and a repeat here will certainly be a popular outcome with dabblebet punters, provided they've backed the right team of course!

When asked if there was anyone better in his pre-match press conference, Wenger said, according to the Mirror: "If you look at the numbers, no". Maybe we are talking about one of the last managers to be able to apply this power over everything in a football club.

Harry Winks, Serge Aurier and Danny Rose also made their injury comebacks on Wednesday night but all three are likely to drop out as Pochettino is expected to recall a number of his key men who were rested in the cup replay.

"There has been lots of discussion in the media after Anthony Taylor was named the referee for the game on Saturday because of his history with Arsene Wenger". The Gunners boss earned a ban for his behaviour towards him against Burnley last season.

Then again, Sanchez endured an abject outing against Liverpool so I wouldn't be crestfallen if Alderweireld, who barely worked up a sweat against Newport, returned to the first team.

"Spurs" Wembley record is better than it was, but Arsenal have the ammunition to hurt them.
