Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur - Arsenal hand Mustafi and Welbeck late checks



Posted Saturday, November 18, 2017 by PA

Arsenal will hand late fitness tests to Shkodran Mustafi and Danny Welbeck ahead of Saturday's Premier League visit of north London rivals Tottenham.

Mustafi has been sidelined since the start of October with a hamstring issue, while a groin injury suffered in the 2-1 defeat at Watford has kept Welbeck out for the past month.

Both could be in contention to face Spurs although Olivier Giroud is out after injuring his thigh on international duty with France while Santi Cazorla (ankle) is a long-term absentee.

Harry Kane is among a number of Tottenham players set for late fitness tests ahead of the trip to the Emirates Stadium.

Kane is hoping to shake off a knee injury while Dele Alli (hamstring), Harry Winks (ankle), Hugo Lloris (groin) and Michel Vorm (knee) will also have to be assessed.

Toby Alderweireld and Victor Wanyama remain out with hamstring and knee problems respectively, while Erik Lamela has only recently recovered from a long-standing hip injury.
