Arsenal expect to have Hector Bellerin back in the starting line-up against Tottenham on Sunday, but could be without a number of other players.

The Spaniard was left out of manager Arsene Wenger's Champions League side that played Ludogorets on Tuesday, but looks set to don the Gunners kit this weekend.

"I left him behind because I was cautious with him. I could have basically forced the issue, he could have played maybe in Bulgaria," Wenger told a news conference. "But he should be all right."

Meanwhile, Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla, Nacho Monreal, and Kieran Gibbs remain doubts for the north London derby.

"The closest to coming back looks to be Walcott," Wenger said.

Gibbs hurt his shoulder against Ludogorets and it remains uncertain whether he will be available.

"I don't know how [Gibbs] will respond to that. I will see today," Wenger added.

The Gunners, who are one of the form teams in the English Premiership will look to reach the summit of the standings after the weekend's fixtures as they are joint first with Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

Wenger will be looking to end the only remaining unbeaten record in the league with their cross-town rivals seeking to close the three point gap, in this mouthwatering tie.

Kickoff at 1400.
