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