Arsenal star misses training ahead of Tottenham clash

Gabriel Martinelli news

Martinelli out of north London derby

Arsenal attacker Gabriel Martinelli has missed the club's final training session ahead of the north London derby tomorrow.

The Gunners are unbeaten in the Premier League this term and they have picked up 13 points from the opening five games.

They will be aiming to continue the bright form when Tottenham Hotspur make the visit to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Ahead of the game, the club are set to be without Martinelli, who has not recovered from his hamstring injury for the derby.

The Brazilian sustained the setback in the win over Everton and he subsequently missed the game against PSV Eindhoven.

Mikel Arteta refused to rule him out of the derby this weekend, but his absence in training suggests he won't be involved.

In his absence, Leandro Trossard looks set to start on the left side of the attack. He has been in sparkling form in recent games.

He scored the winning goal at Everton and provided a goal and an assist during the 4-0 rout of PSV in the Champions League.
