Arsenal can secure fourth place with victory over Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Thursday night.

We’ve been handed a boost as Bukayo Saka is passed fit to start in attack despite being forced off during the win over Leeds United last week with a knock.

Saka starts along with Gabriel Martinelli in the Arsenal attack with the Brazilian keeping his place ahead of Emile Smith Rowe. Martin Odegaard also captains the side once again as he starts in the attacking midfield role.

Ben White is only deemed fit enough for a place on the bench so Rob Holding keeps his place alongside Gabriel in the middle of the defence. Cedric Soares starts at right-back with Takehiro Tomiyasu on the left.

Aaron Ramsdale obviously starts in goal once again while Mohamed Elneny keeps his place in the holding role with Thomas Partey still on the sidelines with a thigh injury. Granit Xhaka lines-up alongside Elneny in the Arsenal midfield.

Eddie Nketiah keeps his place up front having scored a brace against Leeds United last weekend so Alexandre Lacazette remains on the bench.

As for Tottenham, Cristian Romero is ruled out so Davinson Sanchez is recalled. The front three is Hueng-min Son, Harry Kane and Dejan Kulusevski.

These are the line-ups for the game:


Ramsdale; Cedric, Holding, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Elneny, Xhaka, Odegaard; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli.

Subs: Leno, White, Lacazette, Smith Rowe, Pepe, Tavares, Lokonga, Swanson, Patino.


Lloris, Royal, Sanchez, Dier, Davies, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon, Kulusevski, Son, Kane.

Subs: Gollini, Winks, Rodon, Bergwijn, Moura, White, Scarlett, Devine, Craig.
