Tottenham face their nearest and biggest rivals (which is coincidentally the name of our new series which you can check out here) Arsenal this weekend at the Emirates Stadium.

Nuno Espirito Santo's men going into the game on the back of a few disappointing defeats after a solid start to the season - losing to their last two league games following three wins in August.

Spurs will be hoping to bounce back this weekend at a stadium which they've rarely won - winning just once there in the last decade - and against a team who, in truth, aren't very good.

So to do just that, here's how Tottenham should line up.


Tottenham predicted lineup vs Arsenal - Premier League

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Hugo Lloris

Hugo Lloris (GK) - Had his work cut out against Chelsea, but did well...despite conceding three. Still one of the best players at the club.

Emerson Royal (RB) - Unlike Lloris, he didn't do well against Chelsea, but will get another chance this weekend.

Cristian Romero (CB) - The summer signing hasn't really set the world alight yet, but an extended run of games in the side will do him the world of good.

Eric Dier (CB) - Back in favour at Tottenham, Dier is a leader at the back.

Sergio Reguilon (LB) - Hasn't been particularly good this season. Needs to improve, and fast.

2. Midfielders

Dele Alli

Tanguy Ndombele (CM) - Santo's finally giving him a chance in the Tottenham lineup, and he'll look to repay his faith this weekend.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (CM) - The best midfielder at the club. Of course he starts.

Dele Alli (CM) - A man for the big occasion (well...used to be anyways), Dele will be looking to be a match-winner for Tottenham this weekend.

3. Forwards

Harry Kane

Lucas Moura (RW) - He's just back in training but judging by Giovani Lo Celso's recent performances, he may have to start regardless of injury concerns.

Harry Kane (ST) - The top goalscorer in north London derby history; surely he's scoring against a porous Arsenal defence again this weekend.

Son Heung-min (LW) - Back to full fitness last week, Son will be keen to cause havoc down Spurs' left flank.
