Predicted Tottenham XI to face Arsenal in the North London Derby – No right-back

Tottenham Hotspur would have loved to be coming into the North London Derby in sensational form, but woeful games against Sheffield United, Everton, and Bournemouth over the past week have left a lot to be desired.

The congested fixture list and lack of creativity also means that Jose Mourinho will likely be forced to shuffle his pack against the Gunners.

We believe that Hugo Lloris will start between the sticks, with a central defensive duo of Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez, the latter to cope with Arsenal’s forward pace.

With Serge Aurier rested after coming off early against Bournemouth with an injury, Gedson Fernandes fills in at right-back for the day in a rare outing. Ben Davies continues to line up on the other side.

Harry Winks sits deep in midfield as the solo pivot, with Giovani Lo Celso and Tanguy Ndombele ahead of him.

Harry Kane leads the line with Heung-min Son and Steven Bergwijn on the wings in a brave and attacking 4-3-3 formation for Mourinho.
