Tottenham have both Pedro Porro and Richarlison available for their huge north London derby against Arsenal this afternoon.

The Gunners head into Sunday’s game top of the Premier League with Spurs still fighting to secure a top four finish.

Arsenal have played four times since Spurs were last in action and while it has given Ange Postecoglou plenty of time to work with his squad on the pitch, he has also lost a key member of his starting XI in that period.

Destiny Udogie will miss the rest of the season following surgery on his left quadriceps. He is expected to be sidelined for three months, effectively ruling him out of this summer’s European Championships with Italy.

Having impressed up against Bukayo Saka in the reverse fixture in September, his presence will be missed with Ben Davies expected to come in for him.

Porro meanwhile was forced off in the 4-0 defeat to Newcastle United last time out with a hamstring problem but returned to training this week.

Richarlison meanwhile has missed his side’s last two games but is also available again, as confirmed by his manager at Friday’s press conference.

Arsenal meanwhile have a clean bill of health heading across north London with Jurrien Timber their only likely absentee.

The Dutchman returned to action after a long injury layoff for the Under-23s this week – scoring a beauty in the process – with Mikel Arteta not ruling out the possibility of him making the squad on Sunday but he is unlikely to be risked.

In sweeping Chelsea aside on Monday night, the Gunners came through unscathed with Leandro Trossard on target again, hoping to keep his place in the side ahead of Gabriel Martinelli.

Genting Casinos’ Premier League Result Predictor says Arsenal have a 41% chance of victory against Tottenham, with Spurs given a 32% probability of beating Mikel Arteta’s side.
