Arsenal travel to Wembley for another all important north London derby clash.

Arsene Wenger’s side currently sit four points adrift of Spurs who rescued a late draw at Liverpool last week.

Danny Welbeck returns after a hip injury while Nacho Monreal is expected to be passed fit after being substituted following a kick on his thigh against Everton.

A late fitness test for Petr Cech is required as the goalkeeper hasn’t trained after sustaining an injury in the win against the Toffees, with David Ospina ready to deputise for the Czech shot-stopper.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could start his second game on the spin after impressing during his debut against Everton.

As for the hosts, Mauricio Pochettino has no new injury concerns following their 2-0 victory over Newport in their 4th round FA Cup replay.

It’s a must not lose for the Gunners who would surely see their top four hopes end if they lose.
