Arsenal welcome fierce rivals Tottenham Hotspur to the Emirates today for the North London derby with the Gunners looking for revenge after going down 2-1 at White Hart Lane last October.

Arsene Wenger has made a huge call in handing Yossi Benayoun a rare start, with both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Gervinho on the bench. Thomas Rosicky starts in place of Aaron Ramsey, who was carrying a knock throughout the week.

Ledley King and Luka Modric are both fit after being injury doubts, while Rafa van der Vaart only makes the bench with Saha partnering Adebayor up front.
