The end of the international break brings with it a riveting football match as Arsenal host Tottenham Hotspur in the early kick-off match.

The Gunners are at the top of the English Premier League table with 18 points after 7 games.

Tottenham come into the game in 3rd with 17 points after a 6-2 demolition of Leicester City before the break.

Arsenal were 3-0 winners away at Brentford and are hoping to inflict a first loss of the season to Antonio Conte’s side.

A 3-1 Arsenal triumph in this fixture last season means that Spurs have failed to win any of their last 11 North London derbies away from home.

Arsenal have prevailed in each of their last 6 EPL matches at the Emirates, although they have conceded at least 1 goal in all of them.
