Robin van Persie is back in an Arsenal squad.

After a five-month lay off with ankle ligament damage the striker will take his place on the bench for tonight's North London derby at White Hart Lane.

Sol Campbell starts against his former club but Alex Song is out due to an inflamed cartilage in his knee.

Arsenal team in full: Almunia, Sagna, Campbell, Vermaelen, Clichy, Eboue, Diaby, Denilson, Rosicky, Bendtner, Nasri.
Substitutes: Fabianski, Walcott, Silvestre, Merida, Eastmond, Eduardo, van Persie
