Arsenal XI vs Tottenham: confirmed news from the team at the start, composition planned, last injuries for the North London derby


Arsenal will be boosted by a relatively clean health check and a few more days of rest before the London derby this afternoon against Tottenham.

The Gunners’ game against Leicester on Tuesday was their seventh in 21 days, but they will then have four days to prepare for the Spurs – who were in action against Bournemouth on Thursday evening.

As a result, Mikel Arteta should field the same team against Tottenham who drew 1-1 with Leicester at the Emirates Stadium.

The first 45 minutes of this match were among the best footballed by Arsenal under Arteta and, without Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, the hosts could have had two or three goals at halftime.

The right winger is a debatable area of ​​selection, with Cedric Soares striving to beat Hector Bellerin for a starting point.

Further on, Nicolas Pepe is fighting to take over Bukayo Saka but Alexandre Lacazette should lead the line in the absence of suspended Eddie Nketiah.

Arsenal XI preview (3-4-3): Martinez; Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac; Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Tierney; Saka, Lacazette, Aubameyang
