GK: Hugo Lloris

He’s played every minute of Tottenham’s Premier League campaign so far, so there is no chance he’ll miss this one.

RB: Kyle Walker

Walker scored the winner in this fixture in 2011. He has improved a lot since then.

LB: Danny Rose

Like Walker, Rose has goalscoring form against the Gunners. He has played a couple of games in attacking midfield in recent weeks, but he should start this one at left-back.

CBs: Federico Fazio and Jan Vertonghen

Fazio and Vertonghen have been Tottenham’s first-choice defensive pairing since November. Both are fit, so both should start.

CMs: Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb

Mauricio Pochettino can use his favoured central-midfield partnership for the first time in 2015, because Bentaleb is back in England following Algeria’s Africa Cup of Nations elimination.
