Tottenham are entering next week's North London Derby in the best possible shape. On a four-match winning streak in the league, scoring goals and playing entertaining football.
Five games in and they're one of four teams — the current top four — to be unbeaten in the league and only two teams have scored more than their 13 goals so far this season. Heading into one of the most anticipated derby day's in recent history, Spurs are the side playing the better football so far.
To make matters even better for Ange Postecoglou, who can seemingly do no wrong in charge so far, he is working with a near fully fit squad and barring any late issues from training will be ready to field his best team once more. It is a point of strength for Spurs that they have rarely needed to rotate so far this season.

New signing Manor Solomon has worked his way into the side whilst Son Heung-min has taken up a central role to accommodate. The fitness and availability of Dejan Kulusevski, so often out for stretches of last term with niggle, is one of the biggest positives and has allowed for some of the best attacking play to come through him.
James Maddison, despite being kicked consistently for club and country — he is the joint third most fouled player in the league — has remained strong and also in form. It is an ode to the depth available at this current point that Richarlison, tipped by many to have to replace Harry Kane out-and-out, has been able to play a role from the bench after returning from international duty with Brazil.
