Arsenal take on Tottenham Hotspur in the North London Derby later today. It’s always a huge match for the Gunners and we think Arsene Wenger will be making several changes to his team.

It’s a huge match for both teams. Here’s how we think Arsenal will line up:

- Ornstein: Arteta Is The Number One Candidate For Arsenal Job
- Ljungberg: Pepe Is Just Going To Get Better & Better

The Frenchman has struggled for match fitness but returned from international duty and should be okay to play.

LCB) Nacho Monreal
Nacho Monreal will play.
RWB) Hector Bellerin
The Spaniard will start.
RCM) Granit Xhaka

LCM) Aaron Ramsey
LWB) Sead Kolasinac
Sead Kolasinac will undoubtedly start in what will be his first taste of the North London Derby.
RAM) Mesut Ozil
Despite the transfer rumours surrounding his future, Mesut Ozil will play.
LAM) Alexis Sanchez
Alexis Sanchez will start.
ST) Alexander Lacazette
Despite rarely being used in big matches, we think Arsene Wenger will put that behind him and start Alexandre Lacazette in his first North London Derby.
