Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that defensive duo Laurent Koscielny and Kieran Gibbs may be back for Sunday’s north London derby with Tottenham.

The Arsenal boss knows that the match with their fierce rivals is a massive game in regards to their top four hopes, as well as bragging rights.

“It is an important game because we have an opportunity to strengthen our position in fourth place.”
