Sometimes you want your players to be intelligent, they have played a little bit with the rules, they make more of it on the penalty case.

Pochettino is set to discuss the issue with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to "find a solution" to a fixture that could be a danger to players from both sides.

The comments caused a stir but Pochettino says he was not seeking to condone diving, and pointed out that, in his opinion, he was a victim of it on one notable occasion when he was playing for Argentina.

Nacho Monreal has been one of Arsenal's most consistent players this term, and he's also popped up with a number of goals in recent weeks.

The experienced goalkeeper was forced off in the win over Everton with a calf problem and has not trained since as David Ospina prepares to deputise. Santi Cazorla (Achilles) remains a long-term absentee.

Spurs have gone 12 home matches without defeat in the Premier League, and have won eight of their past 10 league games at Wembley.

Last season, Arsenal beat City in the semi-finals and Chelsea in the final to lift their third FA Cup in as many years at Wembley, a run they would like to continue at a stadium where they have had so much success.

Chiefs Trade Alex Smith to Washington
Speculation on Smith's future centers on the fact that he is in the a year ago of his contract and is due to make $17 million. Kansas City was 1-4 in the playoffs with Smith , who had one year left on a four-year contract extension he signed in 2014.

In Kane, Tottenham have arguably the best striker in the Premier League and with the likes of Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Son Heung-min and the arrival of Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain, Spurs have a lethal attack.

The 24-year-old has already netted 22 goals this season, more than anyone else in the league.

It was a method that worked in November when Arsenal won 2-0, inspired by Alexis Sanchez.

Under the gaze of a large and ferocious crowd at Wembley, it will be fascinating to see how Wenger's new-look team cope against Tottenham's finely-tuned side.

Having taken four points from two games against Manchester United and Liverpool, Spurs sit four clear of the Gunners in fifth and sixth respectively. He joined Arsenal in 2015 and has made nearly 100 league appearances for them, but, at 35, his best years are now behind him. It goes to show for their inconsistency and you'll never be sure what to expect.

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld has declared himself ready to face Arsenal after returning from the longest lay-off of his career. Mauricio Pochettino's men are also favoured in the top-four betting at odds-on to secure Champions League qualification, while the Gunners are 13/2 to make up the ground.
