Eddie Nketiah has been reinstated to the starting lineup, which appears to move Gabriel Jesus to the left side while Gabriel Martinelli is also sidelined with a hamstring injury.

 In addition, Mikel Arteta dropped Kai Havertz back to the bench, bringing back Fabio Vieira into the midfield three and giving David Raya his third straight start in goal over Aaron Ramsdale.

Mohamed Elneny has been given a seat on the bench after making a full recovery from a knee injury, although the hosts are still without Thomas Partey and Jurrien Timber.

Ange Posteocglou, the manager of Tottenham, has made just one alteration to his team since last weekend’s victory against Sheffield United, giving Brennan Johnson his entire debut at the attack’s spearhead.

Richarlison joins Manor Solomon on the bench despite his game-winning appearance against the Blades, and Eric Dier and Alejo Veliz are among the substitutes for the visitors.

Arsenal: Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Rice, Vieira, Odegaard; Saka, Nketiah, Jesus

Subs: Ramsdale, Cedric, Tomiyasu, Kiwior, Jorginho, Elneny, Smith Rowe, Nelson, Havertz.
