Tottenham Hotspur have named their starting XI for today’s North London derby clash against rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, with three changes made by Mauricio Pochettino.

Spurs were disappointing in defeat to Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday, with a 1-0 defeat at Wembley in midweek.

Pochettino has confirmed that Ben Davies is unavailable due to injury, with Danny Rose returning to the starting XI at left-back in his place.

Kevin Wimmer gets a rare chance to play, with Eric Dier moving forward into central midfield alongside Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele, who has been passed fit.

Harry Kane is set to lead the line for the White Hart Lane outfit after returning from injury, in the England international’s first game since featuring against Sunderland back in September.

This leaves Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min playing in the wide areas, with Dele Alli failing a late fitness test and not featuring.

Confirmed Tottenham XI (4-3-3): Lloris; Rose, Wimmer, Vertonghen, Walker; Wanyama, Dier, Dembele; Eriksen, Son, Kane
