Tottenham Hotspur boss Mauricio Pochettino has picked his side which will face Arsenal at Wembley Stadium this afternoon.
There is absolutely no doubt that the Spurs players will be smarting from their consecutive defeats to Burnley and Chelsea which has suddenly got fans looking over their shoulder at the chasing pack of the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United rather than dreaming of a late title push.
Arsenal are looking to complete a Premier League double over rival Spurs for only the fourth time, also doing so in 2004-05, 2007-08 and 2013-14.
The midfield pair of Dele Alli (hamstring) and Eric Dier (illness) miss out once more.
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has never lost a home Premier League game against Arsenal (P5 W3 D2 L0) – the only manager to have managed more home games against the Gunners without losing is Jose Mourinho (9).
This is who starts:
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (C), Trippier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Rose, Wanyama, Sissoko, Eriksen, Son, Kane
Subs: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Davies, Skipp, Lamela, Lucas, Llorente
Arsenal: Leno, Mustafi, Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Ramsey, Iwobi, Mkhitaryan, Lacazette.
Subs: Cech, Ozil, Torreira, Aubameyang, Maitland-Niles, Suarez, Kolasinac
