Arsenal can secure the bragging rights in north London and boost our top four hopes with a win over Tottenham at the Emirates this afternoon.

As expected, Unai Emery has made wholesale changes from the side that played in the Europa League on Thursday night but the boss has stuck with the back three that played against Bournemouth last weekend.

Bernd Leno, Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac, Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka are all recalled but there is no Mesut Ozil once again as he’s not even in the squad due to an apparent back problem.

Emery has gone with Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang meaning Alexandre Lacazette is on the bench.

These are the teams:


Leno, Bellerin, Sokratis, Holding, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Iwobi, Torreira, Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang

Subs: Cech, Elneny, Ramsey, Lacazette, Lichtsteiner, Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi


Lloris, Aurier, Vertonghen, Foyth, Davies, Dier, Alli, Sissoko, Eriksen, Son, Kane.

Subs: Rose, Alderweireld, Winks, Walker-Peters, Llorente, Gazzaniga, Lucas Moura
