Nabil Bentaleb has taken to social media to reveal his excitement as Tottenham Hotspur gear up for their Premier League showdown with bitter local rivals Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

The Lilywhites head to Emirates Stadium looking to continue their recent good form and on the back of their 2-1 win over Anderlecht in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Arsenal, meanwhile, will be desperate to return to winning ways after the humiliation of their 5-1 drubbing at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday.

And Bentaleb is clearly looking forward to Sunday’s north London derby clash at The Emirates.

He uploaded the picture above onto his personal Instagram account and wrote: “North London derby today ! Come on boys !! #COYS”
