Wenger normally gets his players highly motivated for games like these, so I am hopeful he can work his magic again this time.

Dele Alli, 21, was shown a yellow card for simulation during his side's 2-2 draw at Liverpool on Saturday.

Wenger on Poch's comments about tricking the opponent, says it used to be foreign players who were known for diving, "but I must say the English players learn very quickly and they may be the masters now".

Arsene Wenger has suggested that English players have become the "masters" of diving ahead of Saturday's North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur.

"We have lost games with 75 per cent possession, at Swansea for example", said Wenger. They extend a little bit the rules.

"I don't encourage them to dive at all. I can be harsh with referees, but on that front, most of the time it's hard".

Both sides are aiming to break into the top four and Arsenal are now one position behind Spurs as they sit in sixth.

Meanwhile, Arsenal will hope to carry on from the Everton game, shorten the gap to one point and most importantly, have the bragging rights of North London.

But Wenger's men have won their last nine games at the national stadium, including a penalty shoot-out victory over Chelsea in this season's Community Shield and the Frenchman is pleased to be back at Wembley. "At Wembley you play special games where you are under pressure to perform and we responded well to it every time".

Cech limped off to be replaced by David Ospina midway through the second half during the Gunners' 5-1 win over Everton last weekend after falling awkwardly while claiming a routine high ball.
