Every year Tottenham and Arsenal battle it out for the title of Kings Of North London, and Arsene Wenger had never lost that race until last season, when Mauriccio Pochettino finally got his Tottenham side above us and into the Champions League at our expense.
Kane is a master of identifying gaps and given Arsenal's defence leaves more spaces than an empty auto park, the Spurs striker will be favoured to add to his tally of six goals in six league games against the Gunners. Odds are firmly pointing to a goal or two for the London side at Wembley.
Wenger will hope both are in similarly fine form to face Tottenham as a victory would see Arsenal move within one point of fifth-placed Spurs in the Premier League table.
You need to be 18+ to gamble.
Kane has proven himself to be the scourge of Arsenal in recent season's having scored six times in north London derby games.
Whereas Arsenal were last in action a week ago, Spurs played in an extremely draining 2-2 draw at Liverpool, perhaps the most high-tempo game of the Premier League season so far, and then had Wednesday's FA Cup replay against Newport. "Why should they not repeat the performance?" he stressed.More news: Celebrity Big Brother Spoilers: Omarosa Calls Chuck Liddell Her Insurance Policy

Arsene Wenger's side now sit four points adrift of Spurs who rescued a late draw at Liverpool last week. Henrikh Mkhitaryan finished his first start with the first hat-trick of assists recorded by an Arsenal player since Santi Cazorla in 2013.
"The last weeks have been tough and I'm very happy to get 90 minutes from the manager, to show myself again and to be able to help the team again". Arsenal's new attacking options seem to have injected a sense of urgency and optimism into the side, with the link between Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang appearing nearly telepathic. And not merely because they have home advantage on Saturday.
"They have won just three of their 13 Premier League away games". How they deal with that expectancy and the Gunners' pace on the break may well prove to be the defining factor of the contest.
Both sides are aiming to break into the top four and Arsenal are now one position behind Spurs as they sit in sixth. They know what's important and that's to focus on their performance.
