Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made two changes to the Gunners side that hammered Everton 5-1 in the last outing.
Midfielders Jack Wilshere and Mohamed Elneny come into the side and they start in place of Alex Iwobi and last week’s hat-trick hero Aaron Ramsey.
Winger Iwobi is available from the bench, but Wenger has confirmed that Ramsey has picked up a “minor groin problem in training” and will not feature today.
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Petr Cech has overcome his pre-match fitness concerns to start between the sticks.
Nacho Monreal, who came off in that Everton victory due to illness, starts today, while striker Danny Welbeck (hip) is on the bench.
In Tottenham team news, boss Mauricio Pochettino has decided to go unchanged from the team that secured a late point at Liverpool the last time out, following a 2-2 draw in that encounter.
January signing Lucas Moura has apparently met the fitness criteria, following his Deadline Day move from PSG, and takes a place on the bench.
He is well set to make his debut against the Gunners.
Elsewhere, defender Toby Alderweireld has not been risked after sustaining a slight injury in the midweek FA Cup win over Newport.
