Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will have almost a full squad to choose from when Arsenal take on London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in a massive Premier League match on Thursday night.

The two teams are seeking places in the Champions League, and the clash at Tottenham Hotspur, the penultimate match, will be crucial to the season.

Arsenal start today with one position and four points better than their opponents, whose dreams in the Champions League will be shattered by defeat at home and if Chelsea beat Leeds United.

Speaking before the match, Arteta provided an update to a number of players, including Ben White, who has missed the last two games.

“Thomas (Party) is still out, Kieran (Tierney) is still out and with Ben still in doubt, we have to evaluate him and see how he feels, which feels a lot better. With Bukayo he’s the same,” she said.

Added Arteta, who pushed further to assess Saka and White’s chances of appearing against Spurs;

“It’s very difficult to assess injuries, it’s just how they feel today, this is the last day we can assess them and try to get a feel, basically,”

Arsenal will feel confident ahead of the visit, having won their last four successive Premier League matches.
