Arsenal's predicted lineup to face Tottenham

Arsenal's predicted lineup to face Tottenham

Arsenal will on Sunday evening lock horns with their London rivals Tottenham, in the usually entertaining North London Derby at the Emirates Stadium. 

The two teams lost their last respective matches last time out, Arsenal going down 3-1 against Liverpool at Anfield, with Spurs succumbing to a damaging 1-0 defeat at home to Newcastle United. 

Both teams will be fighting to pick maximum points before the international break, with the bragging rights at stake as well. 

Arsenal manager hinted on Thursday that he might unleash, for the first time, the frontline of new signing Nicolas Pepe, Emerick-Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, in what could be a deadly trio. 

Mesut Ozil, who has been linked with a transfer away from the club will be available, with Unai Emery indicating he will not be sold this summer. 

However, the Spurs match might be too soon for him, with Guendouzi and Torreira likely to start and Ceballos dropping to the bench. 

Here's how the team might lineup against their North London opponents:

Starting xi: Leno; Maitland-Niles, Luiz, Sokratis, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Torreira; Pépé, Guendouzi, Aubameyang; Lacazette
