Santi Cazorla is determined to win the north London derby on Sunday to make the Arsenal fans happy.

The Gunners have already beaten Tottenham twice this season but haven't won at White Hart Lane in the league since September 2007.

Spurs have lost two games in the past week, to Chelsea and Benfica, but Cazorla is adamant they will provide a stiff challenge on Sunday.

There's always a great atmosphere and it's clear that it's a special game for both clubs

"They are playing quite well at the moment and they will give everything against us," he told Arsenal Player. "They've got lots of good players and once we get out there we know it will be a tough game. But if we play as we normally do, we can beat anybody.

"It's one of the great games because of the great rivalry between Arsenal and Tottenham. But apart from that it's a very important game for us because we're both vying for the Champions League places.

"There's always a great atmosphere and it's clear that it's a special game for both clubs. For us players, it's a case of making the fans happy.

"We need the result because we're going for the title. They need it of course because of their Champions League aspirations."
