The Premier League is back and with it one of the biggest games of the entire season as first hosts third in the north London derby.

Now both teams can be considered Premier League title contenders.
The winner will end the day top as the Gunners look to end Spurs’ unbeaten run as their rivals look to take the spot in the standings. Follow the north London derby live with Standard Sport’s blog below, with expert analysis from Simon Collings and Malik Ouzia at the Emirates.
