Iwobi got a taste of what might turn out to be a feisty encounter in training when he got a nasty tackle from a teammate, Gabriel Paulista.

Although he is not expected to play in the game against Tottenham, Paulista was making an impression in training.

The Brazilian defender was also seen flying into tackles with Rob Holding.

Iwobi, however, was all smiles later, posing for a photo with Gabriel after they ended up playing and winning in the same in training.

“Uno That Good Feeling Yeah ? That Winning Feeling,” Iwobi write on Instagram alongside a photo.

Ahead of the derby, Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger says he is expecting a tough clash.

"It is an interesting clash. For us it is a very important game because we are in a strong position in the league that we want to strengthen," Wenger said.

"Overall Tottenham as well, so it is very tight at the top of the league. We are more focused that it is a home game, to win the game -- whether it is Tottenham or somebody else.

"We want to win our home games because our position in the league is very important and we go into a period where we play big games and we want to win the big games."
