Arsenal v Tottenham predicted lineups and match preview

Arsenal host Tottenham in the North London derby this afternoon.

To be played on Sunday 8th November 2015 at 16:00. Venue: Emirates Stadium, London

Odds: Arsenal 8/11, Draw 13/5, Tottenham 4/1

Arsenal will be hoping to beat Tottenham for the second time this season as they meet again at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners claimed a 2-1 win at White Hart Lane in the Capital One Cup earlier this season, with Mathieu Flamini claiming both goals in that game.

Now, with seven wins in their last eight Premier League games, Arsenal are mounting a real title challenge this season, but Arsene Wenger needs to build his side up again having lost 5-1 to Bayern Munich in midweek.

Laurent Koscielny faces a late fitness test, but Hector Bellerin has been ruled out, whilst Aaron Ramsey, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott remain on the sidelines, with Joel Campbell set to coninue on the right hand side of midfield.

Meanwhile, Spurs have been going steadily this season with just one Premier League defeat to their name, and Pochettino will be looking to surprise many with a win at the Emirates Stadium.

Ryan Mason is back from injury but is unlikely to displace Dele Alli or Eric Dier in midfield, whilst Son Heung-min is fit to return, but again looks likely to be on the bench.

With two of the best defences in the league going up against each other, this promises to be a close encounter, with fans desperate to claim three points - as well as bragging rights over their North London rivals.
