Tottenham Hotspur v. Arsenal Match Thread: NLD Time

Come chat with us as we watch the first North London Derby of the season

Clive Mason

Today the mighty Spurs venture to Woolwich to take on an Arsenal side almost as bruised and battered as we are.

AVB shocks everyone and finally gives Lloris the start, while also pairing Adebayor and Defoe up top. Even though it looks like a 4-4-2, expect Adebayor to drop deep and help the midfield. Caulker may have been injured on England duty (because International football is the worst) and doesn't even make the bench, but Walker and Lennon are ready to go.

Wenger also makes a change in goal, dropping Don Vito for Chesney.

Tottenham Hotspur (4-4-2): Lloris; Walker, Vertonghen, Gallas, Naughton; Lennon, Huddlestone, Sandro, Bale; Adebayor, Defoe

Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Szceszny; Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Vermaelen; Wilshere, Arteta; Walcott, Cazorla, Podolski; Giroud
