Lucas Moura has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur will prove their quality in Sunday's North London derby against Arsenal.
After registering four points from games against Aston Villa and Manchester City, Spurs' progress in the Premier League was halted by a 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United last weekend.
However, while Mauricio Pochettino's team have under-performed during the early weeks of the season, Moura feels that a showdown with rivals Arsenal has come at the perfect time.
The Brazilian told the London Evening Standard: "Is this the perfect game for us to have after the Newcastle defeat? Yes. We need to look forward now. There are a lot of hard games to come.
"We lost against Newcastle but I am sure we have the quality to go to Arsenal and come back with three points. That's what we must try to do.
"Each game is different. This is a new season and we have new players. I think we are stronger now. I am sure we can go anywhere and win games."
Spurs sit in seventh position in the top-flight standings, two points behind Arsenal ahead of the trip to the Emirates Stadium.
