Tottenham vs. Arsenal: Premier League – Match Preview

The second North London derby of the season takes place on Saturday as Spurs welcome Arsenal to Wembley Stadium.

Spurs are in good form and twice recovered from a goal down to draw with Liverpool last weekend in an incredible finale to the fixture.

Erik Lamela was among the goals in mid-week as they beat Newport County 2-0 in their FA Cup Fourth Round replay.

The Gunners thrashed a woeful Everton side 5-1 last time out, with Aaron Ramsey scoring his first ever hat-trick.

Debutantes Henrik Mkhitaryan and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang had superb debuts, assists three goals and scoring respectively.

Team news
Lucas Moura is available for Tottenham following his January move from Paris Saint Germain.

Spurs are likely to name the same XI that drew at Liverpool, meaning Victor Wanyama will again be on the bench.

Petr Cech and Nacho Monreal were forced off in the 5-1 win over Everton and both are doubts.

Alexandre Lacazette is likely to be among the subs again here, with new signing Aubameyang leading the line.

Expected starting XI’s
Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies; Dembele, Dier; Son, Dele, Eriksen; Kane
Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Ospina; Bellerin, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal; Xhaka, Ramsey; Iwobi, Ozil, Mkhitaryan; Aubameyang
