The striker knows that should one of our players net a winning goal against our nearest rivals, a permanent place in the affections of supporters would be instantly afforded.
Mido doesn't mind who it is - as long as it happens.
"To be honest, I am just looking to win the game as that would be a big thing for us - it doesn't matter if I score or not.
I know if a player scores a winner against Arsenal it is a big step for him here at Tottenham
"I know it is a very big game and that everyone here is looking forward to it. I hope we can win because we are confident and we have had good results over the last few weeks.
"I have also heard it is a great atmosphere for the game at White Hart Lane, added Mido, who featured as a substitute in last season's meeting at Highbury.
"Arsenal are still a good team with many attacking options. If they make any mistakes at the back we must make the most of it and, if we get chances, we must score."
Mido insisted that personal goalscoring ambitions will matter little on Saturday as long as the team records a derby victory at the Lane.
