And Pochettino will be expecting his team to pull up their socks after a dismal show vs Chelsea on Wednesday.
The Lilywhites lost their London Derby to Chelsea 2-0 and for the first time this season, Spurs looked rattled as they failed to come up with an answer for Sarri’s tactics.
Spurs news vs Arsenal:
Here’s are all the injuries that Pochettino will have to deal with before Saturday’s clash vs Arsenal:
Dele Alli: The England international is out with a hamstring injury and he is not expected to be available for the North London Derby.
Eric Dier: The midfielder is suffering from tonsilitis and will miss the game vs Arsenal.
Jan Vertonghen: Vertonghen missed the game vs Chelsea due to a hip injury but reports suggest that he should recover in time.
Possible changes to the first XI: Danny Rose started on the bench vs Chelsea but the left-back should replace Ben Davies on Saturday.
If Vertonghen does return then Pochettino will revert to his preferred back-three meaning Trippier and Rose will play as wing-backs.
Eric Lamela should also drop down to the bench which means Son and Harry Kane will play up front.
Spurs news: Lilywhites’ predicted XI vs Arsenal
First XI: Lloris, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Tripper, Rose, Winks, Sissoko, Eriksen, Son, Harry Kane.
