Wenger responds to claims over Arsenal striker Lacazette

Meanwhile, manager Mauricio Pochettino, hired by Spurs before the 2014-15 season, has yet to lose a north London derby in the Premier League - though all three of his visits to the Emirates with Tottenham have ended in a draw.

Wenger won't accept it, however.

If he is given a start at the weekend, Arsenal's diminutive forward will have to put in a good performance to persuade his manager that he can do it against the best sides in the league.

"They've been there in the last few years so now I think they have to make sure they win something to show the progression".

"That's the kind of remarks you get for 20 years", he said, referring to his longevity at the club.

Petr Cech believes Tottenham must win a trophy to match Arsenal's success, denying suggestions of a north London power shift, reports Sky Sports. That might not happen this season.

Deputy Prime Minister Recep Akdağ said no destruction or damage occurred in Turkey from magnitude the quake . Residents were keeping away from their homes and sleeping on the streets, several hours after the quake hit.

Arsenal are now 6th in the league and are four points behind their North London rivals who sit in third place.

"In the last 22, 23 years, we have only finished above Arsenal one time", Pochettino said Thursday. We must respect them.

Having sat out England's friendlies against Brazil and France, Tottenham's Harry Kane is expected to start for the visitors, Wenger acknowledging he has made plans to combat the star centre-forward.

The Gunners have won more trophies in recent seasons, but Sherwood insists his old side are close to winning silverware.

There are a range of options in attack, with Alexandre Lacazette, Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil all vying for forward roles, while Arsenal's midfield balance was questioned in the defeat to Manchester City last time out - does Jack Wilshere deserve a recall?

Lacazette has only completed 90 minutes once since his summer arrival from Lyon.
