Arsenal manager Unai Emery and Tottenham Hotspur Mauricio Pochettino have named their respective squads for the North London Derby clash on Sunday evening.

Unai Emery could welcome back Mesut Ozil back into his squad for the game after missing the first three games of the new Premier League season.

Mesut Ozil has had to deal with security concerns and illness at the start of the season.

On the German leaving before the transfer market closes on Monday, Unai Emery said that Ozil will be staying at Arsenal for this season during his pre-match press conference ahead of the North London Derby.

The likes of Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin and summer signing Kieran Tierney will miss the game as they are working their respective way back from long-term injuries.

For Tottenham Hotspur, record signing Tanguy Ndombele will miss the Arsenal game due to a thigh injury.

He missed the surprising 1-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at home last weekend.

Arsenal’s provisional squad: Leno, Martinez, Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Luiz, Papastathopoulos, Chambers, Monreal, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Torreira, Elneny, Willock, Ceballos, Mkhitaryan, Pepe, Nelson, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette, Martinelli.

Tottenham’s provisional squad: Lloris, Gazzaniga, Aurier, Dier, Alderwerield, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Rose, Winks, Sissoko, Wanyama, Lo Celso, Eriksen, Skipp, Son, Alli, Lamela, Moura, Parrott.
