Tottenham travel to Arsenal for the first north London derby of the season on Sunday, and Mauricio Pochettino has a number of decisions to make regarding his team selection.

Hugo Lloris will start between the sticks as usual but we could see changes at full-back. Kyle Walker-Peters is injured, so Serge Aurier could play his first minutes of the season.

The Jan Vertonghen situation rumbles on, meaning Toby Alderweireld and Davinson Sanchez should continue at centre-back. Sanchez has struggled defensively so far this term, so Ben Davies – arguably a better defender than Danny Rose – might be selected at left-back to help him.

Tanguy Ndombele is still sidelined with a thigh injury, so Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks will continue in midfield. We think Christian Eriksen will come back into the side, dropping deep when necessary to add creativity in the middle of the park.

Dele Alli is set to make his first appearance of the campaign. The 23-year-old will add a much needed link between the midfield and attack. Son Heung-min and Harry Kane are likely to lead the line, with Lucas Moura having to settle for a place on the bench.
