Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is expecting an emotional North London derby at White Hart Lance tomorrow.

Andre Villas-Boas has said that this weekend's North London derby will be "full of emotion".

Tottenham Hotspur were two places above Arsenal before this afternoon's games ahead of the two sides' clash at White Hart Lane tomorrow.

The Spurs manager told the club's website: "We are focused on trying to win because it's important to establish our position in the Premier League. This is a very specific game, anything could happen really.

"I think it will be an open game from both sides, full of emotion, full of adrenaline, unpredictable. I think that's the sort of game we expect and most of the fixtures have translated like that.

"Our objective is to gain the most amount of points as we can and against Arsenal, we have the chance to move further away from them and put ourselves in a more comfortable position. It's an opportunity. The players are ready, prepared and we all know what we want to achieve this season."

Arsenal beat Spurs 5-2 earlier in the season.
