The first North London derby of the 2019/20 season and it will be a classic if last year’s game is anything to go by.
Both Arsenal and Tottenham enter the game on the back of defeats and neither team will want to go into the international break with two consecutive losses to their name.
There has been a lot of pre-game speculation as to what team Unai Emery would put out, would this be the game that we get to see Aubameyang, Pepe and Lacazette start at the same time? Would Chambers replace Luiz and who will the boss go with in the middle of the park?
Well, the wait is over, this is the team that Emery has decided to go with.

So, Pepe, Aubameyang and Lacazette do start together but that midfield gives serious cause for concern, Guendouzi and Xhaka again, hope Emery knows what he is doing playing those two together again.
It is good that Torreira starts, Tottenham will fear him and the defence is the same as the one that faced Liverpool last Saturday.
Overall the team looks satisfactory, would have looked great if Xhaka was not there but you cannot get everything you want.
The game is live in the UK on pay-tv channel Sky Sport and kicks off at 16.30 UK time.
