Welcome to the first north London derby of the 2014/15 season, brought to you by Arsenal’s official car and van hire partner Europcar.
Both sides have endured a fitful start to the season, though the Gunners arguably come into the tie at the Emirates as the in-form side, having put Aston Villa to the sword in their last Premier League outing courtesy of an inspired Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil.
The corresponding fixture last season saw Olivier Giroud’s goal prove the difference as Arsene Wenger’s side narrowly edged out Spurs 1-0. That result ran in stark contrast to what is usually the most explosive game in the Premier League calendar.
A win for Arsenal would cement their place amongst the division’s early high-fliers and put them in great stead for an October that sees them travel to front-runners Chelsea and undertake two tough Champions League fixtures against Galatasaray and Anderlecht.
