Spurs' supporters have been given a huge boost as they head into this weekend's north London derby with news that pivotal defender Jan Vertonghen is fit and ready to face their fiercest league rivals.

"Tottenham came above Arsenal last season so they are better - simple".

Tottenham boast one of the most exciting, youthful squads in the Premier League and the emergence of Harry Winks this season has been testament to Pochettino's philosophy at the club.

"No I don't think so", he said when asked by Sky Sports whether there had been a power shift in north London over the last few seasons. There is always one odd year where things can change, but the most important thing for us is competing against the other teams for the Premier League title and for the glory.

If they win, they cut the gap to Tottenham to just a single point, and take from it the confidence and belief that could help reignite what has been a stuttering campaign thus far.

Brett Hundley played with hamstring injury during Packers' win over Bears
Defensively, the Packers are yielding 23.o points and 353.6 total yards (242.6 in passing and 111.0 in rushing) per game. But considering their season was in danger of slipping away, the Packers (5-4) can at least breathe a little easier.

There have been some mitigating circumstances, with the Chilean arriving back late from worldwide duty during the summer, and the German hampered by injury, but here we are heading for mid-November and between them they have just two goals and four assists. Success is ultimately winning trophies.

Spurs were 3-1 winners against Champions League holders Real Madrid at Wembley last month after already beating Borussia Dortmund at the home of English football.

With their contracts running out in 2018 it has been suggested that Arsenal should allow both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil to leave for the good of the team. "Seriously, it's got to be the worst feeling you've got about playing Spurs teams in years".

"For me that made the biggest difference because they have young, talented players as well as experienced players, their team is very well balanced".
