North London Derby: Surprise change for Arsenal

Rob Holding will start on the bench and Kieran Gibbs will start on the left in today’s North London Derby.

Many expected the same line up that started at Wembley against Manchester City but the Englishman will be replaced by Nacho Monreal in the back three.

Laurent Koscileny is fit and will play as expected after taking part in training yesterday.

Wenger made a number of changes for Wednesday’s win against Leicester but the rest of the line up is the same as last weekend’s.

Rob Holding returns to the first 11 after being rested in midweek and Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain regain their places.

With the Manchester sides dropping points once again today is a massive opportuinity to close in on the top four spot that looked impossible not too long ago.

Today is a huge game for Arsenal and Arsene Wenger. Spurs will be up for it as it is the last derby to be played at White Hart Lane before they move.
