How Arsenal could line up against Tottenham Hotspur

Sports Mole looks at how Arsenal could line up against North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in Sunday's Premier League clash.

Arsenal make their first trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday for a unique North London derby that will be played behind closed doors.

The Gunners head into the match sitting one point above their opponents in the Premier League after winning three and drawing one of their last four matches.

Mikel Arteta's men were held 1-1 by Leicester City in midweek, but that result will not halt the feel-good factor that has returned to the Emirates Stadium over the past few weeks.

Ahead of this weekend's short trip to Tottenham, Sports Mole looks at how Arsenal could line up against their bitter rivals.

Out: Gabriel Martinelli (knee), Bernd Leno (knee), Pablo Mari (ankle), Calum Chambers (knee), Eddie Nketiah (suspended)
Doubtful: Mesut Ozil (back)

Arsenal are without striker Eddie Nketiah for this match after the young striker was sent off shortly after coming on against Leicester.

A number of others, including first-choice goalkeeper Bernd Leno, also remain absent through injury for this trip to Tottenham.

Mesut Ozil has struggled to get into Arsenal's squad for their last few games, the official line being that he is carrying a back injury, and the same is true for Matteo Guendouzi.

Neither player is expected to feature on Sunday and it is likely that Arteta will go with a very similar lineup - perhaps even the same one - that started against Leicester.

Lucas Torreira is pushing for a recall in central midfield, while Nicolas Pepe will also be considered again following the recent birth of his child.

However, Bukayo Saka impressed once again in midweek and should retain his place in the side here, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette favourite to take up the two other spots up top.
