Both teams have started the season strongly. Indeed, Arsenal go into the North London Derby top of the table, a point ahead of Tottenham. The visitors are third and unbeaten in the Premier League heading into the weekend. 

Both sides had a number of players out on international duty this last fortnight. Managers Mikel Arteta and Antonio Conte will be hoping their stars have returned fit and ready for action. However, the Gunners could have up to seven players out. Mohamed Elneny, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Emile Smith Rowe’s injuries were already known. However, Thomas Partey, Kieran Tierney and Takerhiro Tomiyasu left their international teammates early with various issues. Ben White, who was not selected in the England squad, may also not be back to full fitness in time for the early kick-off. 

Spurs captain Hugo Lloris did not join up with France over injury concerns. Dejan Kulusevski is a doubt following international duty with Sweden. Son-Heung Min returned to South Korea to lead his national team, while South Americans Cristian Romero and Davinson Sanchez did not return to London until Thursday. Ben Davies should be available once again following a knee issue.

Whoever is available, history is very much on the side of the Gunners. Tottenham have not won a Premier League game at the Emirates Stadium since 2010, with Arsenal unbeaten in the 11 home league meetings that have followed.

This is a game that means a huge amount to both sets of fans, and the home side will be out for revenge after Tottenham beat them to fourth place last season on the back of a 3-0 victory on a raucous night at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Can they do it, or will The Lilywhites break their terrible run in this fixture? Find out by watching the Arsenal vs Tottenham live stream.
