The German striker says it will be a special match and he believes his side have what it takes to win on Sunday. The 27-year old has been in good form since joining the Gunners from German side Koln at the start of the season. Earlier in November when these two sides met Arsenal won 5-2 and it was Podolski who scored a goal for the home side.
Tottehnam go into the match third on the table and four points clear of Arsenal who are just outside of the Champions League qualification spot behind Chelsea. Podolski rates the cross town rivals very highly but is confident his side have the quality to overcome Spurs.
"They are a very good team, very strong and they are third in the Premier League," Podolski told the club's official website. "I like derbies, it will be a tough match but we want the three points and we have the quality to win there.
"It is something special when it is a derby, for the fans and for the club. When you play away at your rivals you must fight for the three points."
Arsene Wenger's team has finished above Spurs every season since he took charge in 1996, but this could change this season especially if Spurs come on top on Sunday.
"It is a big game but it will not decide who will play in next season's Champions League. We have 11 matches to go and every match is like a final and we must fight to get into the Champions League next season. This is important to us."
