In the attacking third, Takumi Minamino came on from the bench and found the net vs the north Londoners. The Japanese international could start on the right flank. Origi missed the last game due to illness but he did train yesterday. The Belgian may feature as the main center forward. On the other hand, Jota could play on the left flank.
