Arsenal vs. Tottenham: Premier League – Match Preview

The first North London derby of the season takes place on Saturday as Arsenal host Tottenham.

The Gunners were beaten 3-1 away at Manchester City before the international break leaving them outside the top four.

Tottenham edged past Crystal Palace at Wembley, winning 1-0 thanks to Heung Min Son’s winner.

Palace could easily have scored first, however Wilfried Zaha missed a glorious chance for the visitors.
