SuperSport viewers on DStv and GOtv can look forward to a classic Premier League rivalry, as Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur meet for the latest edition of the North London derby, set for the Emirates Stadium on the afternoon of Saturday 1 October 2022.

Spurs claimed a key victory over the Gunners toward the end of last season which earned them a spot in the UEFA Champions League ahead of their rivals, and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will surely use that as motivation for this clash.

“This is the game at the end of the day – it’s decided in various small fractions of time, moments and details that lead to a football result,” said Arteta. “It can be completely different to what you have earned and our job is to earn the right to win the match. Sometimes it’s margins, errors or decisions that are not in your hands.”

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte, meanwhile, believes his team can still improve on their impressive last outing, a 6-2 thrashing of Leicester City: “We have to try to do our best. The Premier League is very difficult. In my opinion I think we have just started a path to fight for something important. We have just started.”

Key players

Gabriel Jesus – The former Manchester City forward has been a revelation at Arsenal, providing a level of movement, pace and intelligence that the Gunners have lacked for several years.

Harry Kane – The England captain loves playing against Arsenal and will hope to lead Spurs to a famous victory on enemy soil come Saturday afternoon.

Head-to-head stats

In head-to-head stats, Arsenal and Tottenham have met in 205 matches across all competitions since 1896, with the Gunners claiming 84 wins compared to 67 for Spurs, while 54 games have been drawn.

The teams each claimed home wins over the other last season, with Arsenal triumphing 3-1 at the Emirates in September 2021, but Spurs claimed revenge at the Tottenham Stadium with a 3-0 triumph in May 2022.

Battles to watch

Mikel Arteta v Antonio Conte – The Spurs boss has a major edge on experience and nous, but Arteta has done a brilliant job in getting Arsenal to play with speed and precision.

William Saliba v Son Heung-min – The French defender is another who has made a major impact at Arsenal, but he faces a tough test against Son, who is fresh from scoring a hat-trick last time out.

Granit Xhaka v Rodrigo Bentancur – This midfield battle between Xhaka and Bentancur will be a potentially decisive one, with the winner giving his side control of the all-important ‘engine room’.
