Tottenham are without Cristian Romero in a big blow as they face Arsenal in a pivotal north London derby tonight.

Manager Antonio Conte has largely stuck with the same formula and players since mid-February, only very occasionally making tweaks, and would likely have picked the same side that started Saturday’s hard-earned 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Anfield for the biggest game of the club’s season.

But Romero misses out with a knock, meaning Davinson Sanchez comes in to the back three alongside Eric Dier and Ben Davies. Aside from that, Spurs are unchanged.

Steven Bergwijn, Lucas Moura and Harry Winks will all be hopeful of minutes from the bench, as Conte looks to navigate a hectic schedule.
