Tottenham

will face

Arsenal

in the Premier League, and their boss

Nuno Espirito

has talked about his players saying that

Lucas Moura

will be back, but they will be without

Steven Bergwijn

for the north London derby.

Both players have missed their side’s last two games against Chelsea and Wolves, and now only Lucas Moura has recovered, and Espirito has revealed that Begwijn is not available for their Saturday clash.

"Steven is not OK, [Ryan] Sessegnon also. But the good news is Lucas has joined the group again,"

Nuno said on Friday

.

"The injury he [Bergwijn] has is very painful, so first of all it has to settle down."

Although they can have the Dutchman in their lineup, they are still happy to have Moura back as they are preparing for an important match after two 3-0 defeats in a row in the Premier League, and Nuno Espirito knows how important this game can be and how important it is for them to avoid three consecutive defeats.

"It's not another game - it's a special game for us, for our fans. It's going to be a tough match, but no doubt it's a different game,"

he continued

.

"I have many, many situations in derbies. But this is a new one, a tough one and a special one for our fans. If it's special for our fans, it's very special for us.

"We expect every player to improve. I think due to the circumstances that we had - pre-season, during the season, international break - there's a lot of space for improvement. But we expect all the players to show all the talent and the quality they have as soon as possible."
