Arsenal vs Tottenham LIVE: Premier League latest score, goals and updates from fixture today

Arteta heaps praise on Arsenal fans ahead of North London derby

Arsenal are taking on Tottenham today in a north London derby where both sides are in need of a morale-boosting win over their neighbours.

The two teams have experienced contrasting starts to the season: Spurs won their opening three league games 1-0 to climb briefly to the top of the table while the Gunners lost their first three, but since then the tables have turned, with Tottenham losing twice and Arsenal winning back-to-back games.

Mikel Arteta’s team could now climb above Spurs in the table with a win over two goals or more, something that would have seemed extremely unlikely just a few weeks ago. In the build-up, Arteta said he has emphasised the importance of the match to the club. “They (Arsenal’s players) do (know the importance) and I will make sure they understand what it means. The history between the two teams and where it came from and what it means emotionally to our supporters,” Arteta told reporters on Friday. “You have to play that game with a slightly different skin because there is a little bit more at stake.”

HT: Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham

HALF-TIME: That’s the end of the 45 minutes. One-way traffic. Arsenal have been good but Spurs have been completely, utterly dreadful.

Could and probably should be game over.

Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham

45 mins: Approaching half-time here and Spurs just really want to hear the whistle. Knocking it around with very little intent. You wonder, would they take 3-0 now? Better that than being truly humiliated.

Nuno will have to make changes at the break.

Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham

42 mins: Tomiyasu fouls Reguilon when he looks have the beating of him. There’s so much space for Arsenal to exploit in between the lines.

This is going to have to be some team talk from Nuno Espirito Santo. His team have been utterly embarrassing.

Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham

40 mins: Chance for Kane! The first chance the England captain has had. It’s a corner swung in by Son and Kane is free without anyone marking him. He heads it down towards the bottom corner but it’s a good yard wide.

Decent opportunity for Spurs.

Arteta went absolutely crazy when that third goal went in. Fair play to him, he’s suffered enough.

Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham

37 mins: This is quite remarkable, to be honest. The manner of this beating could leave Nuno Espirito Santo in all sorts of trouble.

Is the game done? It certainly looks that way at the moment.

GOAL! Arsenal 3-0 Tottenham (Saka, 34)

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

Kane gives the ball away cheaply and Arsenal break. Saka runs at Dier, he tries to play a ball inside which is blocked by Kane. But the luck isn’t with Spurs and so it shouldn’t be. It bounces back to Saka and he tucks it away with his right foot.

Arsenal 2-0 Tottenham

34 mins: Arsenal flicking the ball around for fun now, they’re really enjoying this. Some provocative songs being sung by the home support as well. I’ll leave those up to your imagination.

Kane receives the ball with his back to goal 10 yards inside the Arsenal half but the flag goes up. Sums up Spurs’ opening half hour so far.
