Arteta will have Granit Xhaka available again following his three-match suspension for a red card he received when Manchester City thumped Arsenal 5-0 in August.

10 changes were made in midweek, with Thomas Partey the only Gunner to retain his place from the 1-0 win at Burnley last Saturday.

Ryan Sessegnon is also unlikely to feature through injury.

Match odds

In last term’s two league meetings, each team picked up one win (the home side).

Prior to Arsenal’s win in March, the Gunners had gone five games without beating Tottenham.

Spurs won the pre-season friendly in August 1-0 thanks to Heung-Min Son’s late effort but have not claimed victory at the Emirates since November 2010.

Younes Kaboul completed a comeback with a strike in the 86th minute after Gareth Bale and Rafael van Der Vaart cancelled out early goals Samir Nasri and Marouane Chamakh.

Tottenham have since beaten Arsenal twice in their own back yard in the League Cup but the Gunners have managed to stop Spurs from taking all three points from their home ground in the Premier League on the last 10 occasions.
