Major Arsenal boost as Bukayo Saka and Ben White are FIT and in the squad to play against Tottenham

ARSENAL have been handed a major boost ahead of tonight's crunch north London derby against Tottenham.

Both Bukayo Saka and Ben White are in the squad to face Antonio Conte's side, with a win enough to secure Champions League football next season.

Saka, 20, was taken off early in Sunday's win over Leeds and replaced by Nicolas Pepe.

White, meanwhile, missed the game completely, and the win at West Ham, due to a hamstring strain.

Boss Mikel Arteta initially labelled the pair as a doubt for tonight.

He said: "Thomas (Partey) is still out, Kieran (Tierney) is still out and with Ben he is still a doubt.

Kick off for tonight's game is scheduled for 7.45pm, and fans will find out if either Saka and White are fit enough to start an hour before the first whistle.
