Ange Postecoglou has named his Tottenham Hotspur side which will take to the field in this afternoon’s Premier League clash against Arsenal.

Tottenham have made their best start to a league campaign for 58 years, with four wins and one draw from their opening five fixtures with Arsenal also unbeaten in their opening five fixtures.

Spurs are without Ivan Perisic who suffered a serious knee injury in training and will miss the majority of the season while Giovani Lo Celso, Bryan Gil and Rodrigo Bentancur are all also sidelined.

The North London bragging rights are up for grabs this afternoon with Postecoglou’s new-look Spurs side looking to silence the Gunners on their own turf on what is the Australian’s toughest test of his managerial stint in N17 to date.

Spurs went on a seven-match unbeaten run from the beginning of last season (W5, D2), and their first defeat of that campaign was 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium while under the management of Antonio Conte.

Brennan Johnson makes his full Premier League debut for Spurs.

This is who takes to the field this afternoon:

Tottenham: Vicario, Romero, Porro, van de Ven, Udogie, Kulusevski, Sarr, Son(c), Maddison, Bissouma, Johnson

Subs: Skipp, Emerson Royal, Højbjerg, Dier, Véliz, Solomon, Richarlison, Davies, Forster
