Kim Kallstrom is not included in Arsenal's team to face Tottenham in the north London derby at White Hart Lane.

Kallstrom, who arrived on loan from Spartak Moscow, had yet to play for the Gunners due to a back injury, and having trained with the side on Saturday there was a chance he could be involved in the match against Spurs.

However, manager Arsene Wenger has not picked the Sweden international. Meanwhile, Tomas Rosicky replaces the injured Mesut Ozil in midfield.

Arsenal are looking to close the gap to league-leaders Chelsea to four points, and will have a game in hand after Sunday's fixture.

Tottenham, having played a game more than Arsenal, could close to within three points of the Gunners with a victory at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham starting XI: Lloris, Naughton, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Rose, Sandro, Townsend, Bentaleb, Eriksen, Chadli, Adebayor.

Substitutes: Friedel, Walker, Lennon, Paulinho, Sigurdsson, Kane, Soldado.

Arsenal starting XI: Szczesny, Sagna, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Gibbs, Arteta, Rosicky, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Podolski, Cazorla, Giroud.

Substitutes: Fabianski, Monreal, Vermaelen, Jenkinson, Flamini, Gnabry Sanogo.
