Trippier dropped, Aurier starts in 3-4-3: Spurs predicted team vs Arsenal

After two depressing results away from home, Tottenham return to Wembley as they take on Arsenal in the North London derby on Saturday. Mauricio Pochettino admitted defeat in the title race as Spurs fell 9 points behind league leaders Liverpool after the defeat against Chelsea on Wednesday.

Midfield duo of Dele Alli and Eric Dier are both ruled out of the tie after failing to recover from injury and illness respectively. Jan Vertonghen and Harry Winks face a late fitness test in a bid to make it into the squad for the derby on Saturday.

Besides the bragging rights, the derby is of massive importance to Spurs as a loss would mean that the gap between them and Arsenal would reduce to just 1 point. Dropping points on Saturday is not an option for Spurs and Pochettino will need to get his tactics right to beat their arch-rivals.
