Saturday’s Premier League action gets underway at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur face each other in the latest instalment of the North London derby.

Mikel Arteta’s side headed into September’s international break as the Premier League leaders, having won six of their opening seven league matches (L1), including a 3-0 win at Brentford last time out.

Led by former Manchester City misfit Gabriel Jesus, Arsenal have netted a league third-high 17 goals so far, as they seem to have found a perfect long-term replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

But according to, Arteta is facing an injury crisis ahead of the Saturday clash after Thomas Partey and Takehiro Tomiyasu withdrew from their national team squads.

Seeking their first top-four finish since 2015/16, the Gunners have defied all expectations early in the season, but Spurs’ visit will put their Champions League credentials to the test.

Tottenham came from behind to dismantle Leicester City 6-2 on the eve of the international break, welcoming a two-week hiatus as one of just two top-flight teams in England yet to lose a league game this season.

After overcoming Arsenal in a keenly-contested top-four battle last term, Spurs boss Antonio Conte is keen to turn his side into the title contenders, with a run of five wins from seven league fixtures (D2) boding well.

Match Preview


Coming into this showdown, Arsenal have racked up six consecutive league victories on the home ground despite conceding on each occasion.

The Gunners’ defensive frailties need an immediate improvement, as they’ve failed to keep a clean sheet in their last eight Premier League outings at the Emirates.

However, they can draw inspiration from their phenomenal home league record against Tottenham, having lost just one of their last 29 Premier League H2Hs as hosts (W17, D11).

Tottenham Hotspur

After suffering defeats on their last two Premier League visits to Arsenal, Tottenham stare down the barrel of a three-game losing away streak against bitter North London rivals for the first time since 2013.

Yet Spurs have been scoring at will against the Gunners of late, finding the back of the net in ten successive meetings across all competitions for the first time in over 50 years.

Motivation won’t be in short supply, though, as Conte’s men could register an eight-match unbeaten Premier League start for only the second time in the club’s history.

Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur Potential Line-ups

Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Aaron Ramsdale; Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes, William Saliba, Kieran Tierney; Granit Xhaka, Albert Sambi Lokonga; Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard, Gabriel Martinelli; Gabriel Jesus.

Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction

While a 3-1 defeat to Manchester United in Arsenal’s only high-profile Premier League encounter this season can worry Arteta, there’s no reason for the lack of enthusiasm in the home camp.

The Gunners have turned the Emirates into a fortress this season and their recent home record against Tottenham should inspire much confidence in Arteta’s corner.

It’s hard to see Arsenal losing here, and a tightly-fought win could be the order of the day.
