Arsenal vs. Tottenham, 2014 FA Cup: Preview and TV schedule

Clive Mason

Nothing like a North London Derby in the third round of the FA Cup.

All eyes will be on London this Saturday as Arsenal and Tottenham renew their bitter rivalry in yet another edition of the North London Derby. This latest iteration takes place in the third round of the 2014 FA Cup and should provide all the drama and excitement we've come to expect from this derby.

Both teams enter the match is strong form coming off wins during the midweek. Arsenal currently sit top of the table in the Premier League thanks to two late goals against Cardiff City on Wednesday. The Gunners remain on the hunt for their first trophy since winning the FA Cup in 2005 and would love nothing more than to advance at the expense of their rivals.

Spurs defeated Manchester United at Old Trafford on Wednesday for the second straight season. Despite missing several key starters to injury, Tim Sherwood's side should be full of confidence going into this match.

The last time these two teams played in the FA Cup was in 2001 semi-final where Arsenal were victorious 2-1.
