Arsenal vs Tottenham, Premier League: When is it and how to watch on TV

Martin Odegaard celebrates scoring Arsenal's fourth goal against PSV in the Champions League

Arsenal host Spurs at the Emirates on Sunday in the biggest game of the Premier League season so far between two sides who remain unbeaten after five games of the new campaign.

The north London derby is about as intense a rivalry as there is in the English top flight but this year has added zest with both sides looking to maintain pressure on Manchester City at the top of the table.

Tottenham are flying under new manager Ange Postecoglou while Arsenal have been boosted by their superb start to life back in the Champions League, beating PSV 4-0 on Tuesday.

When is it?

Arsenal vs Tottenham takes place this Sunday. Kick-off is at 2pm.

Where is it?

Arsenal are the home side in this north London derby, with a capacity crowd of just over 60,000 expected at the Emirates.

History never favours the away side in the north London derby but this is especially the case when Spurs travel. Since Arsenal moved to the Emirates from Highbury in 2006, Spurs have won there just once in 17 attempts – a 3-2 win in November 2010.

How to watch on TV?

The match will be broadcast exclusively by Sky in the UK on both Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League.

In the US, NBC has the rights to show every Premier League game live. You can watch the north London derby on the channel with kick-off at 9am ET.

Who is the referee?

In something of a surprise, the north London derby will be refereed by the relatively inexperienced Rob Jones on Sunday as opposed to one of the more familiar names within the officiating ranks.

Jones has taken charge of 53 Premier League games since joining the rotation of top-level referees in 2019 but has never taken charge of a north London derby before.

He will be joined by assistants Lee Betts and Wade Smith. The fourth official will be Michael Salisbury, with Paul Tierney on Var.

What is the recent history between the teams?

The home team have dominated the north London derby over the past 20 years. Since 2000, Spurs have won just once at Arsenal and have lost five of the last six fixtures at the Emirates with the sole draw coming in 2019.

They have had better fortune at home, winning six of their last nine north London derbies but they did come unstuck at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium last season, losing 2-0 in January.
