Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur live stream, Saturday 1 October, 12.30pm
North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham will renew hostilities in the early kick-off on Saturday, as the Premier League returns after the international break.
The Gunners head into the derby in a strong position. Six wins from their first seven matches makes for an impressive start for Mikel Arteta’s men, who sit top of the table going into the weekend. It is true that Arsenal (opens in new tab) have not had the toughest fixture list to date, and they lost their hardest match 3-1 to Manchester United (opens in new tab).
Yet it is not just results that have been impressive. Arsenal’s performances have largely been excellent and they were arguably the better team at Old Trafford despite leaving empty-handed.
The arrival into the starting XI of Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko and William Saliba means this Arsenal team has grown stronger since the end of last season, when a 3-0 loss to their upcoming opponents set the stage for Spurs (opens in new tab) to climb into the top four at their expense.
Tottenham’s start to 2022/23 has not been as eye-catching as that of Arsenal, but they would go above their arch-rivals with a win at the Emirates Stadium. Although Spurs are yet to play well across 90 minutes yet this term, they are unbeaten with five wins and two draws. Antonio Conte’s side are picking up points even they are not operating at full capacity – and that can only be a positive sign.
Arsenal will have to make do without Zinchenko, Mohamed Elneny, Emile Smith Rowe and Reiss Nelson, while Cedric Soares and Thomas Partey will need to be assessed. Kieran Tierney is expected to be available after a head injury.
Tottenham will be unable to call upon the services of Lucas Moura, while Hugo Lloris faces a race against time to be fit after sustaining a thigh injury. Ben Davies is hoping to be fit following a minor knee problem, but Dejan Kulusevski looks set to miss out.
Kick-off is at 12.30pm BST on Saturday 1 October and is being shown on BT Sport 1 (opens in new tab). See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
