With no Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang today, it will be down to Gabriel Martinelli and Alexandre Lacazette to lead the line and get amongst the goals this afternoon at The Emirates.

The team has just been announced, and is as follows:

Leno, AMN, Mustafi, Luiz, Saka, Torreira, Xhaka, Pepe, Ozil, Martinelli and Lacazette. Subs: Martinez, Holding, Bellerin, Guendouzi, Willock, Ceballos and Nketiah. 

Some great news hidden on the subs bench with imminent returns for Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin and Dani Ceballos, also good to Eddie Nketiah grabbing a place.

A win for us today could see us creeping back up to table into the heady heights of 7th in the table if other results go our way this weekend. We have another big chance on Tuesday to climb even higher if we can get a win at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea.

Long term injuries to Calum Chambers and Kieran Tierney mean they will also miss the game… obviously.

Mike Dean will referee the game, his 500th match in charge and will be presented with a Tottenham shirt, a guide dog and some new glasses ahead of the game.
