The first North London Derby of the season is upon us.
Unai Emery could unleash the star-studded trio of Nicolas Pepe, Alex Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the first time this season.
Mesut Ozil is also available. The German was left out of last weekend’s 3-1 defeat to Liverpool, continuing to fuel rumours that the playmaker could levae, but this week Emery has assured Gooners that he expects Ozil to remain with the club for another season.
Spurs kicked off their Premier League campaign with a victory over Aston Villa, but have since drawn against champions Manchester City and were beaten at home to Newcastle last weekend.
Mauricio Pochettino is unlikely to have club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele available. The midfielder has been left out of France’s latest squad for their European Championship qualifiers next week, indicating that he will miss this weekend’s north London derby with his injury.
Arsenal have lost just once to Sp*rs in the Premier League at The Emirates Stadium. Another win and the NLD bragging rights will give Emery’s side a huge lift after a tough outing at Anfield last week.
