Tottenham v Arsenal preview

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp will revert to his first-choice line-up for Sunday’s north London derby, meaning Emmanuel Adebayor is in line to face his former club.
Redknapp, who made 10 changes to his team for the Europa League win over Shamrock Rovers, will give Aaron Lennon a fitness test after he had to come off with a stiff groin on Thursday night.
William Gallas (calf), Michael Dawson (Achilles) and Tom Huddlestone (ankle) are out but Steven Pienaar is available to play his first game of the season after overcoming a groin problem.
Arsenal will give late fitness tests to England winger Theo Walcott (knee) and Gervinho (hamstring) but central defender Laurent Koscielny (ankle) is out.
Johan Djourou (hamstring) also remains out but Yossi Benayoun (thigh) and Sebastien Squillaci both return to the squad after training this weekend.
Midfielders Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby plus defender Thomas Vermaelen continue their rehabilitation from ankle injuries.
