Arsenal vs Tottenham LIVE: Premier League latest score, goals and updates from fixture today

Arteta heaps praise on Arsenal fans ahead of North London derby

Arsenal are taking on Tottenham today in a north London derby where both sides are in need of a morale-boosting win over their neighbours.

The two teams have experienced contrasting starts to the season: Spurs won their opening three league games 1-0 to climb briefly to the top of the table while the Gunners lost their first three, but since then the tables have turned, with Tottenham losing twice and Arsenal winning back-to-back games.

Mikel Arteta’s team could now climb above Spurs in the table with a win over two goals or more, something that would have seemed extremely unlikely just a few weeks ago. In the build-up, Arteta said he has emphasised the importance of the match to the club. “They (Arsenal’s players) do (know the importance) and I will make sure they understand what it means. The history between the two teams and where it came from and what it means emotionally to our supporters,” Arteta told reporters on Friday. “You have to play that game with a slightly different skin because there is a little bit more at stake.”

Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham

63 mins: Chance for Spurs and a great stop by Ramsdale.

Royal picks up a loose ball on the edge of the Arsenal penalty area. He slides it into Kane and the Spurs number 10 takes the shot on. It’s a good effort, arrowing towards the bottom corner before Ramsdale brilliantly tips it around the post.

60 mins: Tottenham look totally confused as to how to break a team down. It’s really quite worrying this.

Lucas sends a half-hearted cross into the box which is gathered easily by Aaron Ramsdale. The build-up is so slow from the visitors. No energy about the approach play.

Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham

58 mins: Penalty shout for Tottenham as Harry Kane goes down under a challenge from Ben White. It’s just whether it’s inside or outside because it’s clearly a foul. Must have been deemed outside the box as VAR doesn’t even look at it.

Aubameyang then goes down outside the box at the other end and he’s told to get to his feet as well.

Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham

55 mins: Penalty shout for Arsenal. Sanchez bundles into Gabriel and the Arsenal players look towards the referee. Nothing given and that’s the correct call. There wasn’t enough in it.

Arteta lost his mind again on the sidelines. Somebody’s excitable.

52 mins: ‘Stand up if you hate Tottenham’ rings around the Emirates Stadium. I imagine right now even those Tottenham players hate Tottenham.

Tomiyasu in acres of space on the right once more. He looks up and sends a ball towards the penalty area but Hojbjerg turns it behind for a corner.

The resulting set-piece is cleared by Sanchez.

Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham

49 mins: Spurs have come out on the front foot as you’d expect them to do. They need to show something in this game because that first 45 minutes was embarrassing.

They are going to leave gaps though and that could enable Arsenal to really give their North London rivals a thrashing.

46 mins: Changes for Spurs then at the start of this second half – no surprise there. Emerson Royal and Oliver Skipp are on for Dele Alli and Japhet Tanganga. It really could have been any of them.

Safe to say it was a great half to be in that stadium… if you are an Arsenal fan. I don’t imagine the away support had the same kind of fun.

HT: Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham

HALF-TIME: That’s the end of the 45 minutes. One-way traffic. Arsenal have been good but Spurs have been completely, utterly dreadful.

Could and probably should be game over.
