Confirmed - Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal line-ups

Here are the line-ups for Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal ahead of the North London derby, kick-off at 16:00 GMT.

Tottenham: Lloris, Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto, Dembele, Parker, Lennon, Sigurdsson, Bale, Adebayor.

Subs: Friedel, Naughton, Gallas, Carroll, Livermore, Holtby and Defoe.

Arsenal: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Monreal, Ramsey, Arteta, Wilshere, Cazorla, Walcott, Giroud.

Subs: Koscielny, Rosicky, Podolski, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Coquelin, Mannone, Gervinho.

Spurs can go above Chelsea with a win, which would take them onto 54 points and just two behind Manchester City in second place. Tottenham have lost only two games at home this season and while they have a worst home attack in the top ten, they have conceded fewer goals at home than Manchester United.

Arsenal can close the gap on Spurs to just a single point if they win. Their away record this season has been very inconsistent with five wins, five draws and three defeats so far. Arsenal have the best away defence in the Premier League having conceded only 11 goals.

What is your prediction for the match?
