Team News: Dele Alli, Mousa Dembele return for Spurs, Mohamed Elneny starts for Arsenal

Dele Alli and Mousa Dembele return to the starting XI for Tottenham Hotspur, while Mohamed Elneny makes his full Premier League debut for Arsenal.

Dele Alli and Mousa Dembele have been declared fit to start for Tottenham Hotspur in this afternoon's North London derby, while January arrival Mohamed Elneny has been handed his full Premier League debut for Arsenal at White Hart Lane.

Alli was a doubt after starting on the bench for Wednesday night's 1-0 defeat to West Ham United, while Dembele has missed Spurs' last three games with a groin strain, but both are handed starting spots today.

The inclusions are two of four changes made by manager Mauricio Pochettino as Kyle Walker and Danny Rose replace Kieran Trippier and Ben Davies respectively.

Both Trippier and Davies have dropped to the bench, and have been joined by Ryan Mason and Nacer Chadli, who started against West Ham in midweek.

As for Arsenal, manager Arsene Wenger has also made four changes, including a goalkeeping one as David Ospina comes in for the injured Petr Cech.

Elneny comes into the fold and Joel Campbell drops out as a result, while Danny Welbeck has been preferred to Olivier Giroud, who is on the bench this afternoon.

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris; Walker, Alderweireld, Wimmer, Rose; Dembele, Dier; Lamela, Eriksen, Alli; Kane
Subs: Vorm, Davies, Trippier, Carroll, Chadli, Mason, Son

Arsenal: Ospina; Bellerin, Mertesacker, Gabriel, Gibbs; Elneny, Coquelin; Ramsey, Ozil, Sanchez; Welbeck
Subs: Macey, Chambers, Monreal, Flamini, Campbell, Walcott, Giroud
