Adebayor (knee/ankle) and Walker (groin) featured in Thursday's Europa League defeat to Benfica but are a doubt to face the Gunners, while right-back Walker (groin) could also miss out.

Captain Michael Dawson will be absent due to a hamstring injury sustained in last weekend's 4-0 defeat at Chelsea, joining Etienne Capoue (ankle), Erik Lamela and Vlad Chiriches (both back) on the sidelines. Gylfi Sigurdsson (foot) could be involved after training on Friday, while Danny Rose (knee) may return to the starting line-up having featured from the bench on Thursday.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Friedel, Walker, Naughton, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Rose, Fryers, Sandro, Dembele, Bentaleb, Paulinho, Lennon, Eriksen, Chadli, Townsend, Sigurdsson, Adebayor, Soldado, Kane.
