LIVE UPDATES: Arsenal vs Tottenham

Good afternoon and welcome. It is a day of derbies in the English Premier League. Ready?

Today offers up the first north London derby of the season as Arsenal host rivals Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium, as Unai Emery gets his first taste of this historic match.

It will be the first time in over two decades that the derby has been contested without Arsene Wenger, and that match finished goalless at Highbury.

Fast-forward 22 years, and both sides find themselves in impressive form domestically, with Spurs currently on a three-match winning streak having record victories in seven of the last eight matches, while Arsenal are unbeaten in the last 11 top flight games.

Both followed up victories last weekend (Spurs defeated Chelsea, Arsenal triumphed at Bournemouth) with success in their respective European competitions, with the Gunners dispatching Vorskla in the Europa League after Spurs’ 1-0 win over Inter Milan kept their Champions League hopes alive.

But who will come out on top in the north London derby? We will all find out soon enough.

The game starts at 2:05 pm and we have all the Live Updates here.

Liverpool will be next after this game with the Merseyside derby at 4:15 pm.
