The German forward told Arsenal.com: "I like derbies. It will be a tough match but we want the three points and we have the quality to win there.
"It is something special when it is a derby, for the fans and for the club. When you play away at your rivals you must fight for the three points.
"It is a big game but it will not decide who will play in next season's Champions League. We have 11 matches to go and every match is like a final and we must fight to get into the Champions League next season. This is important to us."
Arsenal beat Tottenham 5-2 in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.
