Confirmed Tottenham line-up v Arsenal: England international axed again
By Will Butchers
Mauricio Pochettino has made two changes to his Tottenham side to face north London rivals Arsenal at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
The Argentinian manager has handed starts to right-back Kieran Trippier and South Korea international Son Heung-Min, while Mousa Dembele and Kyle Walker drop out.
It is the second time in three matches that England right-back Walker has been dropped to the bench.
It has seen Spurs remain revert to a 4-2-3-1 system, as Eric Dier moves into central midfield to face Arsene Wenger’s side, leaving Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld at the back.
Tottenham posted the starting line-up on their official Twitter account prior to the match.

Wanyama and Dier start in the middle of the park for Spurs, with Harry Winks remains sidelined with an ankle injury that has ruled him out for the rest of the season.
Trippier is called up once again despite Pochettino starting Walker on Wednesday, while Son comes in alongside attackers Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Harry Kane.
Spurs will be desperate to go one better than the reverse fixture with victory against the Gunners at home, after drawing 1-1 at the Emirates Stadium back in November.
In a match that could prove crucial in the Premier League title race come the end of the season, Spurs will be encouraged by their league form at White Hart Lane that has seen this win their last 11 outings.
