By on March 14, 2021 - 155 views

The second North London Derby of the 2020-21 Premier League season kicks off from the Emirates Stadium in under an hour’s time.

Hosts Arsenal are unlikely to finish in the top four this season but victory today would help spoil their rivals’ chances.

Tottenham Hotspur have won their last three in the Premier League and were at home in the Europa League on Thursday night, whilst Mikel Arteta’s side were away in Greece.

The two lineups for this afternoon’s game are confirmed as:

Arsenal

Bernd Leno; Cedric Soares, David Luiz, Gabriel, Kieran Tierney; Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey, Emile Smith Rowe; Martin Odegaard, Alexandre Lacazette, Bukayo Saka

Substitutes: Mat Ryan, Hector Bellerin, Calum Chambers, Rob Holding, Mohamed Elneny, Dani Ceballos, Willian, Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emile Aubameyang

Alexandre Lacazette leads the line for Arsenal today as Pierre-Emile Aubameyang has dropped to the bench for apparent disciplinary reasons.

Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard will support the striker whilst Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey look to win the ball back for their side in front of the back four and start attacks.

Cedric Soares starts ahead of Hector Bellerin at right-back.

Tottenham Hotspur

Hugo Lloris; Matt Doherty, Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Sergio Reguilon; Pierre Emile Hojbjerg, Tanguy Ndombele, Lucas Moura; Gareth Bale, Harry Kane, Son Heung-min

Substitutes: Joe Hart, Serge Aurier, Eric Dier, Ben Davies, Mousa Sissoko, Harry Winks, Dele Alli, Erik Lamela, Carlos Vinicius

Jose Mourinho has his in-form front three available today. Gareth Bale scored a brace in last weekend’s victory whilst Harry Kane scored two during the week.

Spurs have conceded just one goal in their last three Premier League victories, despite looking vulnerable on large spells this season.
