Thomas Tuchel and Mikel Arteta will both have to withstand injuries to key players, meaning that our side will look a little different to how it would with everyone fit.

But there will still be plenty of quality on show, as the duo battle it out for local bragging rights.

In addition to London pride, Arsenal are also desperate for points with three consecutive defeats having derailed their top four hopes.

Aaron Ramsdale has exceeded expectations at the Emirates this season, but Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy is the easy choice as our No1 goalkeeper.

Reece James is our right-back and has hardly any competition, with Takehiro Tomiyasu remaining out with injury.

Kieran Tierney and Ben Chilwell are both long-term absentees, so Marcos Alonso somehow sneaks into our XI.

Antonio Rudiger and Thiago Silva make it as the centre-back partnership – ahead of Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes.

N’Golo Kante gets in at the base of midfield, and has little competition with Mateo Kovacic and Thomas Partey both missing out through injury.


A little further forward, Mason Mount and Martin Odegaard add plenty of creativity – although there’s not quite a place for Emile Smith Rowe.

Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli add some Arsenal presence on the flanks ahead of Christian Pulisic and Timo Werner – with Callum Hudson-Odoi out injured.

Neither side have had a prolific striker this season, but Kai Havertz has done enough to earn a spot over goal-shy duo Romelu Lukaku and Alexandre Lacazette.
