Great news about Toby, he is a rock. Dier looks much better with Toby next to him. Reguilon different class to Ben.

In terms of their start to the season, Spurs have begun much more positively than Arsenal as they have won six and lost just one of their opening 10 league games, whereas the Gunners have won four and lost five of their first 10 (per BBC).
Which of the three players is the most important for Spurs?

Of the three doubts which are predicted to be included in Spurs’ starting lineup for the clash with Arsenal, it is likely that Kane will come as the biggest relief.
The 27-year-old Englishman has been Tottenham’s best-performing player in the top flight this season with a stellar 8.08/10 average rating (per WhoScored).
To earn the rating, he has bagged a whopping seven goals and nine assists in 10 league appearances.
