Mikel Arteta has been boosted ahead of this afternoon’s north London derby by the returns of Oleksandr Zinchenko and Martin Odegaard who have been named in our starting line-up.
The Ukrainian returns after a calf issue, while Odegaard is handed the captain’s armband again after missing our last match - the 3-0 win against Brentford - with Fabio Vieria dropping to the bench.
Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney are also fit after picking up ailments on international duty, while Reiss Nelson returns to the bench.
Tottenham have made three changes to their side that beat Leicester City 6-2 before the international break, with Dejan Kulusevski missing out with a hamstring injury.
Heung-min Son takes his place in the team having netted a hat-trick off the bench in that game, while Christian Romero and Emerson Royal are preferred to Davison Sanchez and Ryan Sessegnon.
Arsenal: Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Partey, Xhaka, Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli, Jesus. Subs: Turner, Tierney, Tomiyasu, Holding, Lokonga, Vieira, Marquinhos, Nelson, Nketiah.
Tottenham: Lloris, Romero, Dier, Lenglet, Perisic, Hojberg, Bentancur, Royal, Son, Richarlison, Kane. Subs: Forster, Doherty, Spence, Sanchez, Bissouma, Skipp, Sarr, Sessegnon, Gil.
