It’s north London derby time again, with the Tottenham vs Arsenal live stream taking place on Sunday. Both teams will be desperate for three points, not just for local bragging rights, but also to keep alive their hopes of Champions League qualification. That said, there is some doubt about whether the game will even go ahead at this stage.

Arsenal have requested a postponement based on lack of available players, with the Premier League due to make a decision on it today (Saturday). 

If it does take place, the game could prove crucial in deciding who gets into Europe’s premier competition next season. Spurs go into the game two points behind Arsenal, but with two games in hand. Arsenal themselves are two points behind West Ham and have a game in hand over Hammers, who start the weekend in fourth spot.

Both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have had a difficult few days. Spurs were comprehensively dispatched by Chelsea over the two legs of their Carabao Cup Semi Final, and needed the late introduction of Lucas Moura and Harry Kane to overcome League One Morecambe in the FA Cup. Arsenal battled hard to hold Liverpool to a goalless draw at Anfield in the delayed first leg of their Carabao Cup Semi Final, playing over an hour of the game with 10 men. However, they had already been unceremoniously dumped out of the FA Cup by Championship side Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

Tottenham Hotspur have been hit by the ongoing absences of Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, and, most recently, Son Heung Min. None will be available for the north London derby. Wingback Sergio Reguilón is also injured and out of the Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal live stream.

Arsenal have selection problems of their own. Martin Ødegaard is out having tested positive for Covid, while Emile Smith Rowe is an injury doubt. Mohammed Elneny and Thomas Partey are both at the Africa Cup of Nations, as is out-of-favor forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Granit Xhaka’s midweek red card against Liverpool means he is suspended for the game.

The clash will be the first time Arsenal fans have ever visited the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Covid restrictions meant that this fixture was played with a just a sprinkling of home fans in attendance last season. Will they be able to celebrate the visit? Or will the home side reclaim some of the form we saw at the start of Antonio Conte’s time at the club?

If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky sub, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service.
