Nuno Espirito Santo has named his Tottenham Hotspur side which will take to the field in this afternoon’s North London derby against Arsenal.
After winning their first three league games all 1-0 this season, Tottenham have lost 3-0 in both of their last two, with both matches being London derbies. Spurs have never lost three consecutive league games by 3+ goals in their entire history.
Arsenal have won 1-0 in successive league matches – they haven’t won three top-flight fixtures in a row by that score since 2008.
Spurs will certainly be looking for Harry Kane to finally come alive in the Premier League, Kane is the leading scorer in north London derbies, with 11 goals in 14 league and cup appearances, while his total of 11 Premier League goals against Arsenal is bettered only by Wayne Rooney’s 12.
Lucas Moura comes back into the side following his recent ankle injury, while there are also starts for Eric Dier and Japhet Tanganga.
This is who takes to the field for Tottenham this afternoon:
Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris (c), Tanganga, Dier, Sanchez, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Dele, Lucas, Son, Kane
Subs: Gollini, Davies, Scarlett, Gil, Lo Celso, Rodon, Emerson Royal, Romero, Skipp
