Tottenham travels to the Emirates on Sunday for the massive North London derby against Arsenal (Watch live, 11 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via Live Extra).

Spurs are currently one of the hottest sides in England, unbeaten in the league since an opening day defeat against Manchester United. Arsenal, on the other hand, is coming off of a midweek thrashing, falling 5-1 to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Add in Arsenal’s injury problems, and some would believe Tottenham has the upper hand in Sunday’s match. Harry Kane however, is thinking the opposite.

The Spurs’ striker knows Arsenal will be looking to avenge their big defeat against Bayern, and is expecting the Gunners to come out firing.

They took a bit of a hiding in midweek and they are going to want to put that right.

We have come off two very good wins so we are going into the game on a high and hopefully we can finish the week off well.

It was not a good night for them (against Bayern). A lot has been said about that result and, as fellow players, you know they will come out firing to try and put things right. So we know what to expect.

Arsenal will have to put the Bayern match behind them, as they were simply outclassed by one of the top sides in Europe. By Premier League standards, there is no stage bigger than the North London derby, so you can be sure Arsene Wenger will have his side ready to go.

The two sides have already met once this season, as Arsenal defeated Tottenham in the League Cup in September. Spurs took home bragging rights in league play last year though, drawing 1-1 at the Emirates before beating Arsenal 2-1 at White Hart Lane. Harry Kane had both of Tottenham’s goals in the win, and after striking five times in his last three games, will be called upon again to lead line on Sunday.
