Tottenham’s starting line-up for this afternoon’s north London derby has been confirmed.
The big news is that Harry Kane has shaken off a knee problem sustained against Dinamo Zagreb and starts, along with Toby Alderweireld, Sergio Regulion, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Gareth Bale following their respective rests against on Thursday.
Matt Doherty gets the nod over Serge Aurier at right-back, whilst Davinson Sanchez makes his seventh Premier League start on the bounce in the heart of the Spurs defence.
Hojbjerg partners Tanguy Ndombele in midfield, behind the same front-three that started Spurs’ win over Crystal Palace at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last Sunday – with Lucas Moura preferred to both Dele Alli and Erik Lamela.
Victory would move Jose Mourinho’s side within three points of fourth-place Chelsea, and mark their first league double over Arsenal since the 1992-1993 campaign
