How to watch Arsenal vs. Tottenham Hotspur: Premier League live stream info, TV channel, time, game odds
Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have had some time off and are no doubt ready to hit the field. They are meeting up for their first leg of the season at 7:30 a.m. ET on Saturday at Emirates Stadium. Both clubs have allowed few goals on average (Tottenham one, Arsenal one), so any goals scored will be well earned.
Everything went Spurs' way against Leicester City two weeks ago as they made off with a 6-2 win. The score was all tied up at the break 2-2, but Tottenham was the better team in the second half.
Meanwhile, Arsenal kept a clean sheet against Brentford last week and took the game 3-0.
Tottenham and Arsenal split their matches last season, with Arsenal claiming a 3-1 victory and Tottenham retaliating with a 3-0 win of their own. Check back on CBSSports.com for updates on how things play out this time around.
Welcome to live coverage of the first North London Derby of the season as Arsenal look to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table with revenge from the 3-0 defeat to Tottenham at the end of last season.
Mikel Arteta and Antonio Conte face off for the second time in their careers with the Italian having the early edge in the head-to-head standings. The Gunners are undefeated against Spurs since 2018 at home and won the last two in their home stadium.
Harry Kane and Son Heung-min will be looking to continue their strong goalscoring record in the derby whilst summer signing Gabriel Jesus will take part in his very first.
William Saliba, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Ivan Perisic are further expected to make their NLD debuts but once again fitness concerns surround Thomas Partey. The Ghanaian was withdrawn from international duty as a precaution but could yet still play.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte has made three changes to his team for their latest Premier League North London Derby at Arsenal.
Both sides come into the match flying high in the table with the Gunners top and Spurs third and unbeaten in the competition with just a point between the two teams. Conte was being cagey when football.london asked him about injuries ahead of the game with Spurs having a number of players suffering knocks on international duty but not wanting to give the Gunners an advantage.
Hugo Lloris has been passed fit to play following a small thigh injury that prevented him from playing for France, but Ben Davies and Lucas Moura remain out while Dejan Kulusevski, who felt a tight hamstring after international duty with Sweden, also misses out.
Conte told football.london that he could switch to a 3-5-2 rather than his usual 3-4-3 at Spurs at some point in the coming run of 13 matches before the World Cup but that is not the case today as he has gone with the familiar latter formation with the in-form Richarlison alongside Harry Kane and Son Heung-min, who is back in the line-up after his hat-trick after coming off the bench against Leicester.
Emerson Royal returned at right wing-back with Ivan Perisic switching back to the left-hand side and Cristian Romero returns to the back three with Davinson Sanchez on the bench. Bryan Gil is the only attacking player among the substitutes.
This season's first edition of the North London derby takes place Saturday, with Tottenham making the short journey to local rival Arsenal's Emirates Stadium.
The hosts will be hoping to continue their rich vein of form this week against their neighbors, having won six of their opening seven Premier League games so far this season. The Gunners sit at the top of the table, one point clear of defending champions Manchester City, going into today's early kickoff, though this Tottenham side will be no pushover.
Spurs are also just a point off the pace being set by Mikel Arteta's Arsenal and remain unbeaten in the 2022 Premier League campaign thus far, with five wins and two draws. Before the international break, Antonio Conte's men put Leicester City to the sword with a 6-2 home win, including a 13-minute hat trick from star Son Heung-min.

North London Derby day is here! Arsenal host Tottenham in an early season measuring stick match for both sides. The Gunners are currently top of the Premier League table, one point ahead of Spurs. Arsenal have played a slightly more difficult schedule, but neither side have exactly had to run the gamut of tough league opponents yet this season. So today’s match could tell us a great deal about whether the clubs are true contenders or just pretenders.
Tottenham haven’t won at Arsenal since 2010. Let’s hope that trend continues today. The clubs split the series last year. The Gunners prevailed 3-1 at the Emirates in the fall. Spurs won 3-0 in the spring in the match where Rob Holding’s shocking naivete doomed Arsenal’s Champions League aspirations.
So far this season, Arsenal are slightly underperforming their xG and xGA, scoring fewer goals and conceding more than you’d expect. Spurs, on the other hand, are overperforming. They are racking up results, sure, but not with the most convincing play. They’re being carried more by elite, probably not sustainable finishing from their top players, minus Son Heung-Min who hasn’t had a great start to the season in terms of scoring (hat trick against woeful Leicester aside). And that’s a bit scary given their 18 goals are second best in the Premier League.
I’m expecting Arsenal to dominate possession today and for Spurs to look to hit on the counter. Antonio Conte’s side is happy to collapse into a low block and play without the ball. We’ve seen that Mikel Arteta wants Arsenal to have the ball. The Gunners have been vulnerable to the counter generally and that goal from Spurs in particular. You know the one — Harry Kane drops deep to receive the ball, plays it wide into space for Son, Kulusevski, Richarlison, or somebody else to run onto, they carry it into the box and lay it across for someone to hit home. Will Mikel Arteta come up with a tactical wrinkle to make his side less vulnerable to the break?
Both managers have been coy with their injury reports. When asked about Thomas Partey, Alex Zinchenko, and Takehiro Tomiyasu’s availability, Mikel Arteta said “they are part of the team” in response, which reporters took to mean the trio were involved in the final day of training. Kieran Tierney is expected to be available after leaving Scotland duty early following a blow to the head. Mohamed Elneny, Reiss Nelson, Cedric Soares, and Emile Smith Rowe are out long-term for the Gunners. UPDATE: Reiss Nelson is on the bench for the Gunners today.
For Conte’s side, Dejan Kulusevski might not be fit after picking up a muscle injury on international duty. Ben Davies sat out international duty for Wales after getting hurt in the Champions League a few weeks ago, but is thought to be available for selection. Hugo Lloris is in a similar boat — missed international duty but expected to play. Lucas Moura may miss out with a nagging injury.
