Under-21s v Arsenal at Barnet tonight

The team remains top of the Elite Group with two games remaining, five points clear of Manchester United and six ahead of Liverpool.

They have already qualified for the play-offs but will want to hold onto top spot and wins against Arsenal tonight and Southampton next week will guarantee it.

We can reach a maximum of 32 points, United can get to 30 and Liverpool 29 - but United and Liverpool play each other in May.

Last week's loss at United was only the team's fifth in 24 matches over the first and second phase of the Barclays U21 Premier League. In that time, they've scored an incredible 76 goals.

Our Senior Professional Phase Coach, Chris Ramsey, was confident the lads would come back strong for that rare loss.

"It was one of those nights and the players have to make sure they learn from it. That’s the key. I think we’ll be right back on it when we play Arsenal," he said.

The top three from the Elite Group qualify for the play-offs. The winners of Group One and Two then meet to complete the play-off quartet.

We'll have our squad for tonight's derby later and look out for live coverage via @SpursOfficial on Twitter.
