Pepe And Cedric To Start, Saka And Bellerin On The Bench: Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Take On Spurs

After a successful trip to Greece during the week, Arsenal’s players should be confident ahead of the North London derby tomorrow.

Bernd Leno did make another error passing it out from the back, though, but the German is expected to keep his place in goal, ahead of Maty Ryan.

In defence, manager Mikel Arteta may consider some rotation at right-back, with the more defensively minded Cedric Soares coming in for Hector Bellerin. After scoring and providing an assist against Olympiakos, Gabriel could keep his place alongside David Luiz at centre-half, with Kieran Tierney at left-back.


In midfield, it’s unlikely there will be any changes with Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka expected to start, with Martin Odegaard retaining his place after scoring his first goal for the club in midweek.

Up front, Arteta may decide to rest Bukayo Saka, who’s looked pretty jaded recently, with Nicolas Pepe coming into the side. Willian and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will make up the rest of the front three.

Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Face Tottenham:

Leno, Cedric, Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney, Partey, Odegaard, Xhaka, Pepe, Aubameyang, Willian
