Tottenham v Arsenal: match preview | Premier League

For the first time in a while more than just bragging rights are up for grabs in the north London derby. Arsenal head to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in fifth place and with genuine hope of forcing their way into the Champions League for the first time since the 2016-17 season. Tottenham sit two points behind them thanks to a run of eight league games undefeated since Antonio Conte’s appointment. Tottenham will be without Son Heung-min and Eric Dier while Granit Xhaka is suspended for Arsenal following his second red card of the season. Stephen Hollis
