Arsenal are finally back to their winning ways in time for the North London Derby at home on week six of the Premier League

The match will kick off at 16:30 on Sunday 26th September in the Emirates Stadium with Craig Pawson as referee

Arsenal has started to turn the tides, coming out with victories in their last ties. One problem that still lies with the team is that they have not managed to win any game comfortably, only beating Norwich and Burnley by singular goals.

Mikel Arteta will want his strike force in high spirits to beat the France captain in goals and to possibly lift his team into the top half of the table.

After what was a perfect start to the season, Spurs’ last four games have been poor, not managing to win any in 90 minutes. The statistics look even worse in the Premier League, losing their last two games with a scoreline of 3-0.

They are still ahead of their local enemies by three points and six places in the table. Nuno Espirito Santo will need to reinvigorate his side if he wants to get any points from this fixture.

This has been a very tense and even affair for the last few years. In their last 27 meetings, both sides have won ten matches and there have been seven draws. Last year, the rivals shared the spoils with both teams winning their home fixture.
