Predicted Tottenham XI to start against Arsenal in the North London Derby

Tottenham Hotspur take on Arsenal at the Emirates in the first North London Derby of the 2019/20 season this weekend.

The game is set to kick off at 16:30 on Sunday with both teams coming into the match off the back of a disappointing defeat.

Spurs lost to Newcastle at home last time out, while Arsenal were defeated 3-1 by Liverpool.

After already dropping five points this season, it would be a huge blow for Tottenham to lose any more on Sunday, while a win could kickstart their campaign.

For some reason, partly due to Arsenal’s pace up front as partly due to the situation at right-back, I believe that Poch will go with five at the back.

This will see Jan Vertonghen finally return alongside Davinson Sanchez and Toby Alderweireld.

Danny Rose gets the nod over Ben Davies as the better wing-back, while Moussa Sissoko covers the right side.

Harry Winks, Dele Alli, and Christian Eriksen make up a three-man midfield, while Harry Kane and Heung Min Son start up top.
