Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur Live Stream 27/9/2014
The brilliant thing about the North London derby is that is almost always guarantees a flurry of goals. There have been 126 in the 44 Premier League meetings since 1992, including crazy scorelines like 5-4, 4-4 and 5-2.
Another mixed week for Arsenal leading in to the Saturday teatime clash at the Emirates, the 179th meeting of these rivals overall.
The enthusiasm from last weekend’s three-minute blitz of Aston Villa, a match in which the much-maligned Mesut Ozil finally showed something like his best form, was tempered by a midweek loss to Southampton in the Capital One Cup and news that Mathieu Debuchy won’t be seen again until Christmas.

But while the cup exit is a disappointment, the focus is on the league and they will seek a compelling win over Spurs to blow away any doubts that they can keep up with Chelsea, who look a cut above at the moment.
They certainly had the measure of Spurs last season, recording 1-0 victories home and away in the league and also prevailing 2-0 in the third round of the FA Cup.
That was the match in which Theo Walcott suffered the serious knee ligament damage that has kept him sidelined for 10 months but there is hope he’ll return to action following next month’s international break.

Rocked by last Sunday’s home defeat to West Brom, Mauricio Pochettino ensured his side bounced back in midweek with an inspired double substitution as they came from behind to beat Nottingham Forest and reach the fourth round of the League Cup.
Trailing 1-0 and deservedly so, his decision to introduce Ryan Mason and Harry Kane changed the flow of the game and both found the net in the eventual 3-1 success.
He will also have been pleased to see Roberto Soldado on the scoresheet, though the Spaniard hasn’t scored a League goal since March.
All will need to be at their best on Saturday and hopefully we’ll see a return to the dramatic, high-scoring affairs this contest has become used to.
