Arsenal and Tottenham will go head to head in the Premier League today (Saturday 1 October) in what could be a crucial clash at the top of the table.

Hosts Arsenal enter the north London derby as league leaders on 18 points, one clear of second-placed Manchester City and third-placed Tottenham, who would leapfrog their rivals with a win this afternoon.

Before the international break, Spurs thrashed Leicester 6-2 as Son Heung-min scored a second-half hat-trick off the bench to surely earn himself a starting spot here, while Mikel Arteta’s Gunners were 3-0 victors at Brentford.

That result saw Arsenal bounce back from their sole league defeat of the season so far – a loss to Manchester United – while Antonio Conte’s Tottenham are unbeaten in the top flight.

Here’s all you need to know.

Injuries are starting to catch up with Arsenal and risk affecting the Gunners’ ambitious title pursuit. This week saw the news that Emile Smith Rowe will be out for two months after the midfielder underwent groin surgery, while there are further midfield concerns, with Thomas Partey, Mohamed Elneny and Reiss Nelson all doubts here – the latter two having already missed a considerable number of games. Oleksandr Zinchenko’s presence in defence is also up in the air.

Meanwhile, Tottenham are much closer to full strength, with only winger Lucas Moura expected to miss out here due to a long-term calf issue.

Predicted line-ups

Arsenal: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka, Saka, Vieira, Martinelli; Jesus.

Tottenham: Lloris; Perisic, Sanchez, Dier, Lenglet, Sessegnon; Hojbjerg, Bentancur; Kulusevski, Son, Kane.
