Tottenham Hotspur boss Ange Postecoglou has picked his starting eleven and substitutes for this afternoon’s trip to face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.


Postecoglou has enjoyed a sensational start to his time as Tottenham boss, but now faces an acid test in the north London derby at Arsenal.




Spurs have not won at Arsenal in the league since 2010 and the Gunners have won the last three encounters at the ground, albeit without keeping a clean sheet.


Ivan Perisic is out and looking at missing most of the rest of the season due to a knee injury, while Rodrigo Bentancur, Giovani Lo Celso and Bryan Gil remain sidelined.



Guglielmo Vicario is between the sticks for Tottenham, while in defence Postecoglou picks Pedro Porro, Cristian Romero, Micky van de Ven and Destiny Udogie.


Midfield sees Pape Matar Sarr, Yves Bissouma and James Maddison all play, while Dejan Kulusevski and Brennan Johnson support Heung-Min Son up top.



Postecoglou has options on the bench if he wants to shake things up and could turn to Richarlison or Oliver Skipp, amongst others.
