For the second North London Derby this season, Arsene Wenger makes several changes to the Arsenal lineup. Nicklas Bendtner and Olivier Giroud are out due to an ankle injury and illness respectively, so Theo Walcott starts up front. Serge Gnabry plays on the right, and Wojciech Szczesny and Per Mertesacker are rested. Lukasz Fabianski and Thomas Vermaelen come into the side.

Spurs make one change from the side that beat Manchester United on Wednesday: Nabil Bentaleb replaces Etienne Capoue.

Arsenal: Fabianski; Sagna, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Monreal; Arteta, Wilshere; Gnabry, Rosicky, Cazorla; Walcott
Subs: Viviano, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Flamini, Özil, Podolski, Park

Tottenham: Lloris; Walker, Chiriches, Dawson, Rose; Lennon, Bentaleb, Dembele, Eriksen; Soldado, Adebayor
Subs: Friedel, Fredericks, Fryers, Capoue, Chadli, Kane, Obika

Referee: Mark Clattenberg
