Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has named a front three of Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette for the north London derby.
The trio, on whom Arsenal have spent a combined £170million, start together for the first time after Lacazette was benched in the 3-1 defeat at Liverpool. His return to the squad, along with Lucas Torreira’s, sees Dani Ceballos and Joe Willock drop out of the XI.
Mesut Ozil is in a matchday squad for the first time but is confined to the substitutes bench.
For the very first time 🤩

Emery’s first north London derby ended in exceptional fashion, a second-half comeback earning Arsenal a 4-2 win that represents the high watermark of his time in the job.
