Well, here we are: it’s the first north London derby of the season. Sure, they’re common - they happen at least twice a year - and sure, they’re always fun/stressful/annoying/all of the above (delete as appropriate), but one thing’s for sure, they’re always memorable. Hopefully today will be memorable for all the right reasons.

Emirates Stadium, London
Ending their adorable quest to be Invincible just like us.
Maintaining the proper separation in the table.
Maintaining the title challenge.
Maintaining the status quo.
I mean, c’mon.
Hector Bellerin is healthy and should be available; on the downside, Santi, Nacho, and Theo are all probably out. Granit Xhaka’s also available having served his suspension, but Le Boss might not want to risk him from a temperament perspective.
Cech; Mustafi, Koscielny, Bellerin, Gibbs (hopefully); Coquelin, Elneny, Ox, Özil, Iwobi, Alexis
