TEAM NEWS: Tottenham vs Arsenal 

Arsenal will travel to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to take on Spurs tonight. 

It’s North London derby day and potentially, a defining night in the race for the Champions League.

Arsenal remain unchanged with in-form striker Eddie Nketiah preferred to Alexandre Lacazette, leading the attack on what has to be the biggest occasion of his Gunners career.

Arteta has chosen not to rush Ben White from a hamstring injury, though the England international does feature on the Arsenal bench. 

A huge blow ahead of kick-off for Tottenham with the confirmation that defender Cristian Romero is absent from the matchday squad.

It’s the first time since Spurs' defeat at Chelsea in January they have been without the Argentine in the Premier League.

Davinson Sanchez, who deputized in Romero’s absence at Stamford Bridge on that occasion, comes into the Spurs back line. The Colombian is unbeaten in his last four Spurs appearances. 

Tottenham XI: Lloris, Royal, Sanchez, Dier, Davies, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon, Kulusevski, Son, Kane.

Subs: Gollini, Winks, Rodon, Bergwijn, Moura, White, Scarlett, Devine, Craig. 

Arsenal XI: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, Holding, Gabriel, Cedric, Xhaka, Elneny, Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli, Nketiah.

Subs: Leno, White, Lacazette, Smith Rowe, Pepe, Tavares, Lokonga, Swanson, Patino.
