Arsenal team news ahead of Tottenham clash

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will have almost an entire squad to pick from when the Gunners take on London rivals Tottenham in a monumental Premier League clash on Thursday night. 

The two sides are in the hunt for Champions League spots, and the clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which is the penultimate match, will be season-defining. 

The Gunners start the day one place and four points better off than their opponents, whose Champions League dreams will be shattered with defeat on their own turf and if Chelsea edges Leeds United.

Speaking ahead of the match, Arteta gave an update on a number of players, including Ben White, who has missed the last two matches. 

“Thomas (Partey) is still out, Kieran (Tierney) is still out and with Ben he is still a doubt, we have to assess him and see how he is feeling, which is much better. With Bukayo it’s the same,” he said. 

Further pushed to rate Saka and White’s chances of featuring against Spurs, Arteta added; 

“It’s very difficult to rate with injuries, it’s just how they feel today, that’s the last day that we can assess them and try to get the feeling, basically,”

The Gunners will be feeling confident ahead of the visit, having won their last four Premier League clashes in a row.
