Despite further speculation over his future this week, Sherwood is excited to take on the Gunners at White Hart Lane and believes the match couldn't have come at a better time for his squad.
"It is my first time as a manager at the Lane to be standing opposite Arsene Wenger and hopefully I will get one over on them," said Sherwood.
"We've got the best game we could have, a north London derby.
"We won't need any more motivation for that, will we? I am sure they will be up for it. It is probably the best game we could have.
"I always thought it was a good time to be playing Arsenal, but it's ups and downs. We have to soldier on, you can't always win games and we know that."
