Shkodran Mustafi is set to be fit to feature for Arsenal after the international break.
The German international has not played for the Gunners since the win over Brighton at the start of October having suffered a thigh injury while playing for his national team against Azerbaijan on October 8.
Mustafi has missed seven Arsenal games in all competitions during his recovery – but he has been working with the fitness coaches at the training ground this week stepping up his recovery.
The centre-back is due to return to full training on Monday, giving him the full week to get up to speed before Tottenham visit the Emirates on Saturday, November 18.
He uploaded a video on his Instragram on Friday of himself working out in the gym at London Colney – along with the caption #workrate.
Rob Holding (thigh) and Calum Chambers (hip) will also be back for the north London derby, as will Per Mertesacker who has recovered from the illness that saw him sit out last weekend’s 3-1 defeat at Manchester City
Danny Welbeck is back training again after the hamstring injury he suffered against Watford, as is goalkeeper David Ospina (groin).
