Combined XI of Arsenal and Tottenham players ahead of Premier League derby

Arsenal will welcome Tottenham to the Emirates Stadium this weekend in the first North London derby of the Premier League season.

Here is a combined XI of players from both teams.

Goalkeeper

Hugo Lloris

Hugo Lloris kept a clean sheet in Tottenham's first 3 matches of the season which included an opening weekend win over defending champions, Manchester City.

He is one of the few world class goalkeepers in the Premier League.

Left back

Kieran Tierney

Kieran Tierney has been one of Arsenal's better performing players so far this season.

He takes a spot in this lineup ahead of Sergio Reguilon.

Gabriel Magalhaes

Arsenal are yet to concede in any game Gabriel has played in since his return and this gives him a spot in this XI.

Eric Dier

Eric Dier was part of the Spurs defence that kept three consecutive clean sheets at the start of the season.

He has been a mainstay in Spurs defence this season.

Emerson Royal

Arsenal has not been very strong in the right back area so far this season and it's still early days for new signing, Takehiro Tomiyasu.

For this lineup, the spot is given to Emerson Royal who is currently Spurs' first choice right back. But it could have been Tomiyasu too.

Defensive midfielder

Thomas Partey

Thomas Partey's return to the Arsenal XI from has coincided with Arsenal's string of wins in the PL.

He will be very vital for the Gunners this season.

Central midfielder

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg

Pierre-Emile Højbjerg has been simply a class player for Tottenham.

He is one of the "untouchables" in the Spurs lineup.

Left winger

Son Heung-Min

Son Heung-Min is one of the world class players at Tottenham.

He walks into any XI in the Premier League.

Attacking midfielder

Martin Ødegaard

If Arsenal will challenge for the top four this season, then Martin and will be a very important player.

He scored a delightful free-kick last time out and will be looking to do some damage against Spurs this time around.

Right winger

Emile Smith Rowe

Arsenal versatile Emile Smith Rowe has been another player who has been playing well for the Gunners this season.

For this XI, he takes a spot on the right wing.

Centre forward

Harry Kane

It took a while but Harry Kane finally opened his account for the season in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

He may not be firing yet this season but the England national team captain remains a world class player.
