Former Tottenham midfielder and manager Tim Sherwood says that his former club are "on the brink" of winning a trophy.
Arsenal have failed to win any of their last six Premier League matches against Spurs. After finishing behind Arsenal for 22 straight years many believe that the tide has turned in North London supremacy. They have won only two of their last 32 away league games, dating to January 1, 1986 - a 3-1 win at Highbury on May 11, 1993 and a 3-2 victory at the Emirates on November 20, 2010.
"To keep him quiet, yes", said Wenger, when asked if Arsenal have a plan for Kane.
The 26-year-old made something of a mockery of Wenger's decision by scoring just nine minutes after his second half introduction to briefly bring his side back into a contest which was eventually settled when Gabriel Jesus put City 3-1 ahead with a contentious goal.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has previously overlooked the French striker when naming his starting line-up to take on the bigger teams in the division, and with close rivals Spurs coming up this weekend, there is calls that he should be given the nod for the crunch match.
Yet no team has won more Premier League away games in 2017 than Tottenham, who have earned 10 victories away from home this year.
Pochettino, who hasn't been on the losing side in six meetings with Arsenal as Tottenham manager, accepted that history does count when assessing the relative merits of the sides.
"Fortunately, he's so good that Real Madrid or Barcelona will buy him next season, so we haven't got to worry about him for much longer!"
Victories over Real Madrid and Crystal Palace ahead of the worldwide break have left Mauricio Pochettino's side in a good position in both the Premier League and Champions League as they look to push on from their encouraging finishes to the past two campaigns.
Kane has scored in his last five games against Arsenal.
And how does the defence cope with Harry Kane, should the Spurs ace be fit to play?
Arsenal will be without injured striker Olivier Giroud, while Wenger has to decide whether to recall Alexandre Lacazette to the team after leaving the France worldwide out of two big games this season already, at Liverpool and Man City.
