Aaron Ramsey wasn’t named in Arsenal‘s squad for Saturday’s north London derby due to what the club described as a “minor groin problem.”

The in-form Welshman’s absence meant the nucleus of Arsene Wenger’s lineup for the Tottenham Hotspur test comprised of Mohamed Elneny, Granit Xhaka, and Jack Wilshere.

Toby Alderweireld wasn’t named in Spurs’ matchday throng for the clash after making his long-awaited return from a hamstring injury in Wednesday’s 2-0 FA Cup replay victory over League Two’s Newport County. There was a place on Mauricio Pochettino’s bench for Lucas Moura, the £25-million January arrival from Paris Saint-Germain.

Arsenal travelled to Tottenham’s temporary digs of Wembley having won at the ground in each of its last nine matches there, including three FA Cup finals. Spurs haven’t lost a Premier League home match against the Gunners since March 2014.
