Stadium: Emirates (London)
Sunday's central match will take place in London, where Arsenal and Tottenham will lock horns. How will the North London derby end this time? With the Spurs’ win again.
Arsenal is the laughingstock of the season. Three crushing defeats at the hands of Brentford, Chelsea and Man City with a combined score of 0-9 were diluted by two narrow victories over the worst teams in the championship, Norwich and Burnley (1-0). A very unconvincing comeback from Mikel Arteta's side. Even their triumphs in the EFL Cup over West Bromwich (6-0) and Wimbledon (3-0) did not change that.
Unlike Arsenal, Tottenham got off to a great start to the season with three 1-0 wins over Man City, Wolverhampton and Watford. But then they were thrashed by Crystal Palace and Chelsea (0-3). So, the Spurs moved down to the middle of the table. However, we should give credit to Nuno Espirito Santo who made the Spurs' game more or less clear. It's a counter attacking game with reliable coverage in the rear. In the games against Crystal Palace and Chelsea, there was a glitch. This time, the Spurs should have better luck in the London derby, because Arsenal must be the weakest team in London.
Injuries and suspensions
- Arsenal: Tierney.

The upcoming North London derby will be the 190th encounter. So far, Arsenal are ahead, 78-60. Last season, the Spurs swept the Gunners away with a 2-0 win at home. Two goals were scored by Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. The meeting at the Emirates ended with a win for the Gunners. Martin Ødegaard and Alexandre Lacazette responded to Erik Lamela’s goal.
