The North London Derby is here and Arsenal can move to within one point of third place with a win over Tottenham at Wembley this lunchtime.

Unai Emery has dropped Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the game with Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette coming in to the attack.

It looks like we’re going four at the back with Shkodran Mustafi playing at right-back and Nacho Monreal moving to left-back. Matteo Guendouzi also comes in for Lucas Torreira in midfield while Granit Xhaka is recalled. Aaron Ramsey is also brought back in to the side.

I’m not sure I agree with leaving Ozil, Torreira, Aubameyang and Sead Kolasinac all on the bench but let’s hope Emery’s got his team selection right.

These are the teams:


Lloris, Trippier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Rose, Wanyama, Sissoko, Eriksen, Son, Kane

Subs: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Davies, Skipp, Lamela, Lucas, Llorente


Leno, Mustafi, Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Mkhitaryan, Ramsey, Iwobi, Lacazette

Subs: Cech, Ozil, Torreira, Aubameyang, Maitland-Niles, Suarez, Kolasinac
