Arsenal vs. Tottenham Hotspur: Where to Watch Premier League, Live Stream, Team News and Odds

The Premier League season might be just three games old but it's already time for the first North London derby of the campaign, with Arsenal hosting Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

A staple of English soccer, the fixture is arguably one of the few high-profile encounters to almost invariably deliver in terms of goals, controversy and drama.

Take last season's two meetings, for example. Arsenal won 4-2 in December in a game that saw two penalties and a red card awarded, before Spurs rescued a 1-1 draw in March after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed a late spot-kick.

Penalties are a common occurrence in the fixture, with five of the last 14 goals scored in the North London derby coming from the spot.

While it would be an exaggeration to suggest both teams arrive into the game in disarray, it is fairly obvious neither Arsenal nor Spurs will remember last weekend's games with any fondness.

After two wins in two games, the Gunners' perfect start to the season came to a brusque halt at Anfield against Liverpool, a ground that has often served as the graveyard of Arsenal's hopes in recent seasons.

Unai Emery's men occasionally looked threatening in the first half but they were ultimately outplayed, outrun and outthought in a 3-1 defeat. If Arsenal losing away at Liverpool was hardly surprising, Spurs' defeat at home against Newcastle United was altogether more unexpected.

Tottenham went 1-0 down halfway through the first half and looked miles away from the entertaining side Mauricio Pochettino put together last season. Spurs, as is the case with Manchester United to a greater extent, struggle to break down teams who are happy to sit back and let their opponents have the ball for large parts of the game.

A series of injuries and Pochettino's seemingly steadfast refusal to start Christian Eriksen—who remains linked with a move away before Monday's European transfer deadline —have deprived Spurs of their usual fluidity.

The omens aren't particularly good for them ahead of Sunday, as Arsenal is unbeaten in North London derbies played in September in all competitions since 1969 and has won more Premier League matches and a higher win rate in the month than any other side in the Premier League.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Sunday.

Team news

Arsenal should have Mesut Ozil back after the German recovered from an illness, but the game comes too soon for Rob Holding. Long-term absentees Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney remain unavailable.

Spurs will be without Juan Foyth and Kyle Walker-Peters who are nursing an ankle and hamstring injury, respectively.

Summer signings Tanguy Ndombele and Ryan Sessegnon are out with a thigh and a hamstring problem, while Eric Dier will be assessed before the match.


According to Oddschecker, Arsenal is a 7/5 favorite, while Spurs are 19/10 and the draw is at 13/5.
