Arsenal a really good team - Conte

Arsenal and Tottenham are separated by just one point at the top of the Premier League table as they go head-to-head in the first north London derby of the season this afternoon. Mikel Arteta’s Gunners sit top of the league with 18 points whilst Antonio Conte’s Spurs are two places back in third.

In their last match before the international break Tottenham despatched Leicester 6-2 with Son Heung-min finally hitting form with a second half hat-trick from off the bench to seal the victory for Spurs. Arsenal are also in fine touch and they ended the opening spell of the season with a 3-0 win away at Brentford.

Today’s encounter is set to be a furious clash between two teams on the top of their game. Arsenal have only lost once in their league campaign so far – a 3-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford – whilst Tottenham are unbeaten with five wins and two draws from their first seven fixtures. Will the Gunners end Spurs’ unbeaten run and remain top of the Premier League table?

Follow all the action from the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal host Tottenham in the north London derby:

67’ Arsenal 3-1 Tottenham: GOAL! Xhaka puts the game away

Remarkable, the new fan favourite, Granit Xhaka buries this with a sublime finish from 15 yards.

Game over? Martinelli carried it in from the left and Xhaka just pinched the ball off him and found himself in space inside the box.

Hit low and hard, Lloris has no chance as it rockets into the bottom right corner.

62’ Arsenal 2-1 Tottenham: RED! Emerson Royal sent off for a stamp on Gabriel Martinelli

Emerson Royal sent off for a stamp on Gabriel Martinelli.

It’s a nasty challenge, studs scraped down the Arsenal man’s ankle.

Conte has gone berserk, but he can have no complaints when he sees the replay.

61’ Arsenal 2-1 Tottenham

Massive chance, Richarlison twists and turns and pulls it back for Son.

It's behind the Korean, but Hojbjerg runs onto it, unmarked, and blazes high and wide, it's a poor effort and he has to do better.

Then Jesus is picked out at the back post, a fine cross from Xhaka and he gets up and over Lenglet to plant a header low to Lloris' right, but this time the French goalkeeper holds onto it.

57’ Arsenal 2-1 Tottenham

Martinelli delicately lifts one into the box, away by Romero.

All Arsenal now. Spurs holding on.

53’ Arsenal 2-1 Tottenham

Martinelli now causing havoc down the left again. He carries it over half the length of the pitch, teasing Romero and Hojbjerg.

Romero eventually nibbles and it deflects back off the Arsenal man for a goal kick.

Jesus now darts into the are and tumbles, no penalty according to Taylor.

CHANCE! Jesus must score his second and Arsenal’s third, it’s lofted up and the Brazilian escapes Royal and heads down and wide of the left post.
