Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal: How to live stream, who will win and all pre-match buzz around epic North London Derby
The Spurs are getting efficient by the day, while Mikel Arteta's outfit has looked abysmal and their so-called rejuvenation seems to have faded
It's time for the North London Derby on Sunday, December 6, as Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur lock horns for the first time in the season. The fortunes are contrasting. The Spurs are getting efficient by the day while Mikel Arteta's outfit has looked abysmal and their so-called rejuvenation seems to have faded. Both sides have played ten games so far and while the Spurs are perched on top of the table with 21 points from six wins, Arsenal is 14th with four wins.
A loss on Sunday will pretty much spell doom for the Gunners. Jose Mourinho, on the other hand, will be keen to grab three points after salvaging a draw against Chelsea. Arsenal has lost two of their last three games and is under pressure to win a game against a side that has won consistently through the season. The lack of a creative playmaker has hurt Arsenal and their goal-scoring opportunities are minimal as a result. They will be up against a red-hot Spurs unit keen on continuing their good run.
Here's a quick primer ahead of the game.
Kickoff is scheduled for 11:30 am on Sunday, December 6, 2020
Tottenham will host the Gunners at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Pre-buzz around the game
Both sides have faced off 201 times to date and while Arsenal has been the dominant side with 82 wins, they're up against a Spurs side that has established itself as a team keen on taking the trophy away from Liverpool. The two sides last met in July this year with the Spurs winning 2-1. The hosts will be concerned with Harry Kane's injury as he is set to undergo a scan ahead of the game on Sunday. Belgia star Toby Alederweireld, Sergio Reguilon, and Carlos Vinicius will be assessed again.
Erik Lamela's Achilles injury puts him out of the game. Arteta's side will be monitoring the conditions of David Luiz and Thomas Partey, while Nicholas Pepe will continue to sit after his suspension. "I think it's very early in the season to see who is title contenders or not," Arteta told reporters, according to ESPN. "But what you can say is that they (Spurs) are in the position they are because they are doing things the right way."
"The table is like that because they deserve it more than us and they've done things better than us," Arteta said. "We have to accept that. But we want to go there and make that gap three points smaller," the gaffer added.
Who will win?
Although the game is actually most would dub the North London Derby, the Spurs are firm favorites to win this game owing to the scintillating form they're in. With Arsenal clearly struggling, the odds are against them and they will have to bring their A-game to make an impact and progress in the league.
