Mauricio Pochettino has named his Tottenham Hotspur side for this afternoon’s North London derby against Arsenal.

Spurs head to the Emirates without club record signing Tanguy Ndombele for the second successive match due to a thigh problem.

Mauricio Pochettino is also forced into a change at right-back after Kyle Walker-Peters, who has started every Premier League game this season hobbled off during the second half of the loss to Newcastle United with a hamstring problem.

Defensively, Spurs will be looking to improve; they are one of just two sides to have conceded first in all three of their Premier League games so far this season.

The Lilywhites last shipped the first goal in their first four Premier League games back in 2008-09.

This is who starts.

Arsenal: Leno, Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Luiz, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Torreira, Guendouzi, Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang.

Subs: Martinez, Chambers, Willock, Ceballos, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Nelson

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C), Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Lamela, Son, Kane

Subs: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Davies, Skipp, Lo Celso, Dele, Lucas
