Big change in attack, Tanganga fell – Tottenham team should choose Antonio Conte against Arsenal

Antonio Conte will take charge of his first north London derby as Tottenham manager on Sunday provided the match gets the green light following Arsenal’s request from the Premier League to postpone the match.

Coming into the game after Wednesday’s 1-0 defeat to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup, Tottenham really need a win over Arsenal to help lift spirits after a difficult start to the month.

However, the head coach will once again have to lay off a number of his players due to injury.

On the other hand, Arsenal will enter the match after a morale tie with Liverpool in the League Cup after they managed to keep the Reds in trouble despite playing with ten men for 65 minutes of the match.

So how exactly will Tottenham line up at N17 on Sunday afternoon? Our reporters at Tottenham Hotspur have decided which team they will choose to face the derby.

Antonio Conte is hoping at least some of Tottenham’s players will be back in action if the north London derby continues on Sunday.

Sergio Reguilon took part in full training on Friday and Conte confirmed he had asked Steven Bergwijn if he was fit enough to replace him on the bench after recovering from the injury.

Christian Romero is gradually playing an increasing role in training after his long absence, but the coach said they should be calm about bringing him back.

Eric Dier will miss the derby injury, and Conte also confirmed that Tottenham have one Covid case among their first team.

The Spurs boss will have to make decisions in defense and midfield, including whether Reguilon is fit enough to start or whether Ryan Sessegnon will start the Premier League.

Gold team: Loris. Sanchez, Rodon, Davis; Emerson, Skipp, Hojberg, Reguilon; Lucas, Ken, Jill.

Antonio Conte does not have many options to choose from on Sunday due to injuries and Covid affecting his plans.

However, he needs to make some adjustments to the team that lost to Chelsea in the middle of the week.

Hugo Lloris needs to get back into the squad after his surprise absence against the Blues, while it might be time to bring out Japhet Tanganga after some big mistakes in the past three games.

This in turn will see Joe Rodon come into the center of the defence, allowing Davinson Sanchez to move to the right where he looks more comfortable.

Oliver Skipp is also essential for the derby and should replace Harry Winks on the team.

With Steven Bergwijn not quite fit yet and Giovanni Lo Celso not taking his chance against Chelsea, Brian Gill got a rare opportunity to show what he can do in the Premier League right from the whistle.

The Spaniard looked brilliant from the bench in the reverse fixture in September and could be a key element as Spurs look to score a big win over their rivals.

guest team: Loris. Sanchez, Rodon, Davis; Emerson, Hojberg; Skipp, Reguilon; Lucas, Ken, Jill.
