The Emirates will welcome the return of fans to the North London derby this weekend as Arsenal take on Tottenham.
The Covid pandemic has affected their last three games with only one at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium allowing limited attendance.
Mikel Arteta will be relieved to have a full squad to choose from, as injuries have plagued the start of his season.
Arsenal have lost their first three in the league, including the opener against newly promoted Brentford, but have fought back in their last two.
Tottenham, meanwhile, won their first three but have lost two on the rebound since.
Now, the London rivals will face each other on Sunday in a huge clash.
Arsenal team news
Renowned summer signing Ben White played the opener against Brentford, then missed two crucial games against Chelsea and Manchester City.
Since returning, he’s helped the Gunners cross the line with two clean sheets and two wins over Norwich and Burnley.
Arteta also had to navigate among the first absent forwards Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette who contracted COVID-19 as rumors circulated about their future in north London.
They’re both back, with Aubameyang wearing the captain’s armband again.
The Gabon international has also played the 90 in the last two, which have ended in victories.
Lacazette, however, has only enjoyed half an hour of the championship so far, but took on the role of captain in his Carabao Cup victory over Wimbledon on Wednesday.
Tottenham team news
Steven Bergwijn’s return is still in question after injuring his ankle in the Rennes game earlier this month.
He played a lot more at the start of this season and played a pivotal role compared to last season.
He scored once and made the first three wins, but since his absence from the league Spurs have lost twice.
Nuno Espirito Santo will however be relieved to reunite with Heung-Min Son, who played the 90s against Chelsea last week.
The South Korea international also provided a much needed outlet early in the season when Harry Kane was out.
Lucas Moura is available for the weekend after receiving a blow that saw him miss both Chelsea and Wolves games.
The Brazilian had appeared in all matches before that and will be eager to return for this huge game.
What was said?
The two managers spoke to the media ahead of Sunday’s game.
Arteta said: “I hope everyone is available. We still have a pre-game session, but everyone is feeling good.
“It’s the most special game of the season at home. We know how much that means.
“I’ll make sure they understand what this means.”
Nuno said, “It’s not another game, it’s a different game, it’s a special game for us, a special game for our fans.
“It will be a tough game, but there’s no doubt it’s a different game.
He added: “We have a session tomorrow to prepare it and then we will make the decisions.
“We have Lucas [Moura] back also so good news, let’s try to do and prepare for the game.
“Like I said, it’s a different game and we have to feel it.”
