The 25-year-old returned to London this week after he secured World Cup qualification with Switzerland following their goalless stalemate with Northern Ireland last Sunday.

And the games continue to come thick and fast for the Swiss international with Arsenal hosting Tottenham in the north London derby this Saturday.

Arsenal have been the top dogs in this fierce rivalry for most of the Premier League era, but have not fared well in this fixture recently, not winning in the club’s last six meetings.

Spurs have been impressive so far this season and are four points in front of their rivals and heading into the tie as favourites.

Xhaka is expected to feature and will be tasked with nullifying midfield maestros Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen – with the latter starring in Denmark’s World Cup play-off by scoring a hat-trick to seal qualification earlier this week.

Xhaka struggled in Arsenal’s last Premier League match – a 3-1 defeat by Manchester City – and will eager to put in a better display this weekend with the bragging rights at stake.
