Tottenham haven’t beaten Arsenal in the league since 1999 – can they change that this Wednesday? Full betting here.

Robin van Persie is set to be named as a substitute for Arsenal’s visit to Tottenham on Wednesday night, provided he comes through a training session later on Tuesday.

The striker is poised to make a comeback after five months out of action with an ankle injury.

The 26-year-old Dutchman scored eight goals in 11 games before rupturing ankle ligaments during the Netherlands’ friendly against Italy last November.

In Van Persie’s absence, Arsenal have scored only 1.77 goals per league game, as opposed to 3.26 before his injury.

The Dutchman has missed 31 games in all competitions but his rehabilitation went according to plan and Wenger was impressed by the physical condition he was in on returning from the Netherlands.
