Team news: Arteta sticks with same league side

The away changing room at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Mikel Arteta has stuck to the same starting line-up from our last Premier League outing against Newcastle United 12 days ago for this afternoon’s trip to Tottenham Hotspur.

After making seven changes to his side for the FA Cup tie at Oxford United on Monday, those players rested for that game come back into the side for the north London derby.

That means Gabriel Magalhaes, Gabriel Martinelli, Eddie Nketiah and Buyajo Saka all start - the latter shaking off a knock that came at the end of the cup tie and saw him replaced by Emile Smith Rowe, 

He is again among the substitutes, but Mohamed Elneny misses out after picking up a knock in training.

Antonio Conte meanwhile has made three alterations to his team that beat Crystal Palace 4-0 in their last Premier League outing, with Dejan Kulusevski returning from injury for his first appearance since Boxing Day.

Ryan Sessegnon and Pape Sarr also come into the team, with Bryan Gil, Oliver Skipp and Ivan Perisic dropping to the bench, who are joined by Richarlison for the first time since his hamstring injury at the World Cup.

Tottenham: Lloris, Romero, Dier, Lenglet, Doherty, Sarr, Hojbjerg, Sessegnon, Kulusevski, Son, Kane. Subs: Forster, Perisic, Davies, Sanchez, Royal, Bissouma, Skipp, Gil, Richarlison, 

Arsenal: Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Partey, Xhaka, Odegaard, Saka, Martinelli, Nketiah. Subs: Turner, Tierney, Tomiyasu, Holding, Lokonga, Smith, Vieira, Smith Rowe, Marquinhos.
