Arsenal title winner Alan Smith believes they can hurt Tottenham's defence in Sunday's North London derby.

Smith is hoping Arsenal recreate that on Sunday and enjoy a similar win.

When speaking to Sky Sports News , he said: “It's going to be interesting to see Arsenal's attack against Tottenham's defence, given those creative players and if Arsenal can get Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang moving and making good runs and playing with confidence.

“Tottenham have got a couple of new boys in Emerson Royal and Cristian Romero and that might be an area that Arsenal can exploit, perhaps down the left flank.

“Just like Spurs, that's the strength for Arsenal: the creative players they've got. They've got energy, ideas, real talent there.

“In the coming weeks, if those creative players just behind Aubameyang can build up a relationship with the centre-forward, then you're in business. But so much depends on Aubameyang.

“If it's all falling down with him, if he's not making the runs, if he's not finishing his opportunities, then all that creativity comes to nothing."
