Team News:
Tottenham will give fitness tests to Jan Vertonghen and Harry Winks who both have hip injuries. Vertonghen's was picked up in the build-up to Wednesday's defeat to Chelsea, where Winks sustained a similar problem.
Harry Kane will be available after he escaped retrospective action from the Football Association following his clash with Blues defender Cesar Azpilicueta.
Dele Alli (hamstring) and Eric Dier (tonisillitis) are both out.
As for the visitors, centre-back Laurent Koscielny is a doubt after picking up a knock late on in Wednesday's win over Bournemouth.
However, Emery hopes to have experienced right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner back following a hip issue and fellow full-back Ainsley Maitland-Niles is also available after illness.

Tottenham Hotspur have won five of their last seven home Premier League games against Arsenal (D1 L1), including each of the last two; only once in their top-flight history have Spurs won three consecutively at home against the Gunners (between January 1960 and August 1961).
Arsenal are looking to complete a Premier League double over rival Spurs for only the fourth time, also doing so in 2004-05, 2007-08 and 2013-14.
The away team have won just one of the last 16 Premier League fixtures between Spurs and Arsenal, with the Gunners winning 1-0 at White Hart Lane in March 2014; the home team has won each of the last four since April 2017.
This will be the fifth meeting between Tottenham and Arsenal at Wembley, with Spurs winning two (D1 L1). They could become the first team to beat the Gunners on three separate occasions at the stadium.
Tottenham haven't lost three consecutive Premier League games since November 2012, the third defeat of which came against Arsenal.
