Aubameyang & Kane lead Tottenham-Arsenal combined XI

Goal takes a look at what a north London derby combined XI would look like as the rivals prepare to lock horns at Wembley on Saturday

  1. HUGO LLORIS - GK

    The Spurs goalkeeper is given the nod over Petr Cech and David Ospina in arguably the easiest choice in the starting XI.
  2. KIERAN TRIPPIER - RB

    Mauricio Pochettino's preferred right-back for important fixtures, Trippier will almost certainly be selected over Serge Aurier for Saturday's tie.

    The 27-year-old has been more creative than his Arsenal counterpart, Hector Bellerin, while proving defensively sound throughout the campaign.

  3. DAVINSON SANCHEZ - CB

    Sanchez has made Toby Alderweireld's absence considerably more bearable for Pochettino this term, making 20 appearances so far.

    Only Burnley, Chelsea, and the two Manchester clubs have conceded fewer goals than Spurs this season and Sanchez's performances have been a key factor in that defensive excellence.

  4. JAN VERTONGHEN - CB

    Vertonghen's inclusion speaks for itself. The Tottenham centre-half is enjoying yet another successful season at the heart of the Spurs defence.
  5. NACHO MONREAL - LB

    The Spain international has scored four goals and registered two assists in the Premier League this season, making him an easy choice for the left side of our combined XI defence.
  6. MOUSA DEMBELE - DM

    Though the Belgian has not been involved as much as he'd have liked to have been this season, he's again proved to be a significant part of Pochettino's Tottenham side and takes a central slot in our team.
  7. CHRISTIAN ERIKSEN - AMR

    The Denmark international has scored seven goals and created six more this season. As a result, he slots into an attacking wide role behind two of the finest forwards in Europe.
  8. HENRIKH MKHITARYAN - AML

    Mkhitaryan has assisted three goals in 120 minutes of Premier League action for Arsenal so far, the same tally that Alexis Sanchez managed in 1507 minutes of action for the Gunners in 2017-18.
  9. MESUT OZIL - AMC

    Though Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan have stolen the headlines in recent weeks, Ozil's contract renewal has allowed Arsenal fans to once again believe the Germany international will lead them to a genuine title charge next season.
  10. PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG - ST

    One game, one goal. Aubameyang has opened his Arsenal account and will be confident of continuing his impressive record against Spurs this weekend. 

    Indeed, the former Borussia Dortmund forward has scored four goals in four previous appearances against Tottenham Hotspur in all competitions.

  11. HARRY KANE - ST

    Who else? The Tottenham forward continues to break records and is currently the Premier League's top scorer with 22 goals in 25 games, leading him to securing the final spot in our team.
  12. COMBINED XI

    And here's how they line up in full!
