 TOTTENHAM 1-1 ARSENAL

HT: Booked! Alexandre Lacazette is the next in the book. He clips the heels of Giovani Lo Celso, who was breaking down the left. And we didn’t have to wait long for the fourth booking of the half as Ben Davies ploughs into the back of Nicolas Pepe.

That’s the break folks. A sublime opener and a comical equaliser leave us level.

43: Nicolas Pepe pounces on a loose ball inside the Tottenham penalty area and his snapshot is saved by Hugo Lloris. I make that 5-6 in the shot tally.

41: Ben Davies took the bait. Nicolas Pepe is just begging to be brought down outside the box and the Spurs defender obliges. It’s a dangerous free-kick within range.

Surely they aren’t going to let David Luiz take this? WIDE! Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pulls rank and sends his effort past the post. Not far away that.

38: Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler is in… interesting form. He’s discussing co-commentator Alan Smith’s lunch, Dani Ceballos’ previous career of hairdressing and suggested that barbers would earn more than Premier League footballers after lockdown. Someone get him a brew.

35: Booked! Alexandre Lacazette capitalises on a Serge Aurier mistake and the Tottenham right-back brings him down. Referee Michael Oliver had no hesitations. Dani Ceballos sends in an unusually poor free-kick that flies straight out of play.

33: Well it’s evident that nobody is shot-shy today. Nicolas Pepe goes for his signature curling effort but sends it narrowly wide. I think Hugo Lloris had it covered anyway.

Nice shirt Jose Mourinho is wearing today. Two buttons undone.

30: Serge Aurier now wins a corner for Spurs down the right channel.

Giovani Lo Celso delivers and the ball is recycled back to Ben Davies, who unleashes an outrageous arrowed effort from about 35 yards out. I think it’s heading into the top left-hand corner but Emiliano Martinez got the faintest of touches to tip it onto the crossbar.

27: I forgot to mention that seconds before Alexandre Lacazette’s opener – Lo Celso was booked for an off-the-ball incident with Dani Ceballos. He shoved the Spaniard for some reason.

24: Drinks break… just to spoil the momentum.

21: Close! Tottenham have a decent chance to make it 2-1 in the blink of an eye. Serge Aurier plays an inviting ball in for Moussa Sissoko, but Shkodran Mustafi is there to clear. A five-minute meltdown for the Arsenal defence here.

TOTTENHAM 1-1 ARSENAL | SON

19: GOAL! Son Heung-min registers his first goal against Arsenal in the Premier League and it’s a complete gift.

Sead Kolasinac plays a really poor pass back to David Luiz, who can’t bring it under his control and Son nips in to steal possession before chipping nicely over Emiliano Martinez. Clinical, yes. Avoidable, yes.

18: Alexandre Lacazette is the first Arsenal player to score home and away against Spurs in a single league season since Per Mertesacker in 2012-13.

TOTTENHAM 0-1 ARSENAL | LACAZETTE

17: GOAL! That, my friends, is a certified banger! Arsenal take the lead through Alexandre Lacazette.

The Frenchman, who doesn’t have a great record away from the Emirates, collects the ball after Granit Xhaka beat Serge Aurier in a 50/50 challenge. He proceeds to absolutely fizz it past Hugo Lloris from 20-yards out. Cracker.

15: Glorious chance for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, you would have expected him to bury that. Hector Bellerin strides, rather easily, beyond Harry Winks before cutting the ball back for the unmarked striker, who can’t adjust his feet and tamely drags it wide.

12: Chance! Best of the game. Lucas Moura darts inside from the left channel and clips a ball forward to Harry Kane. The England talisman stretches to flick the ball over Emiliano Martinez but the Arsenal stopper anticipates the lob and collects.

10: Emiliano Martinez has been a terrific deputy for Bernd Leno. I think a few Arsenal fans thought their season could be over when the German was stretchered off against Brighton – but three clean sheets and a bundle of good saves could see Mikel Arteta have a very difficult decision to make when both are available next season.

Toby Alderweireld does well to make life difficult for Alexandre Lacazette as the Frenchman looked to glance a cross in at the near post.

8: This derby really has delivered over the last few years. Penalties, red cards, goals – it’s had it all. No early indications today will be as chaotic as the previous years and perhaps that’s got something to do with the lack of supporters. Still plenty of time for a frenzy.

5: Just realised Spurs didn’t have a shot on target in the whole goalless draw against Bournemouth – Lucas Moura’s effort means that won’t be happening again. Anyway, bit of a sluggish start from Arsenal, which is a surprise given their recent form.

3: Tottenham have a very decent opening inside the first 30 seconds. Harry Kane steals the ball off the toes of a dithering David Luiz before Lucas Moura charges forward and fires a swerving effort on target. Emiliano Martinez comfortably gathers.

That’s not the first sign of a David Luiz calamity, right?

TOTTENHAM 0-0 ARSENAL

1: After a minute’s silence for Jack Charlton, who passed away this weekend at the age of 85, we’re underway in the north London derby! Sol Campbell in the Sky Sports studio has predicted… a draw. Get off the fence, Sol!

Enjoy it

Like this. Mikel Arteta has told teenage sensation Bukayo Saka to just enjoy his success. Sounds simple enough.

“First of all, enjoy the moment,” Arteta said when quizzed on how to shield Saka from the spotlight. “Football has some really good moments and some difficult moments. You are doing so well, enjoy it. But then understand this changes in 24, 48 hours. You have to live [on] your toes all the time, ready to react and act.

“Bukayo is like this. Every training session, he doesn’t give you any sign there’s something different. There are going to be moments when he was a little bit up and down.

“It’s normal because it happens to every player, whether you are 18 or 38. He needs to understand that, take it naturally and we are here to support him, to try to make him better, and that’s it – enjoy.”

Villa alive

They couldn’t, could they? I’ll admit I thought Aston Villa were dead and buried after their latest defeat to Manchester United – but there’s hope!

Trézéguet has scored his second of the afternoon to give Aston Villa a 2-0 lead over Crystal Palace with 20 minutes remaining on the clock.

The win, of they cling on, would take them above Bournemouth into 18th position – four points behind Watford and West Ham with three games remaining. Could get tasty, especially that final match of the season against David Moyes’ side.

Jose knows

Jose Mourinho understands derbies. It’s a fact. A fact like Snails have 14,000 teeth… I couldn’t think of a more relevant fact I’m afraid.

Anyway, the Portuguese has managed in some of the biggest derbies in world football including Manchester, Madrid and Milan – so he knows what to expect today.

“I would say that the moment I put my foot in a club for the first time, I learn it automatically,” he told Sky Sports.

“When I go to a derby as Inter manager, I know what it means for them. When I go as Real Madrid manager, I know what it means for them. And when I go as Tottenham manager, I know what it means for them.

“They can count on me to have exactly the same feelings, the same desire and the same passion that they have. When you are a player or a coach of a certain team, it cannot just be a job for you. You must have a sense of duty and a responsibility towards the people who love your club.

“For me, my club, my passion, my love, is the club where I am. In this moment, if you ask me if I know how important it is for Tottenham fans to look at their biggest rivals, then of course I know it and of course I share it.”

Twitter reaction

Marc: Pretty much expected that line up… Strong enough to get a result… Harry Kane to get a really soft penalty in the 55th minute. #TottenhamPenaltyBingo

AJ: Hmmm. Really fancied seeing Bukayo Saka running at Serge Aurier today. Would have started him over Alexandre Lacazette but otherwise it’s a good team.

Dean: The more I think about it, the more I think Nicolas Pepe should start over Bukayo Saka. The pace, width and the total shambles of Spurs’ back line. It’s heaven!

Edward: Winks/Sissoko partnership again?! Jose Mourinho talked about tiredness against Bournemouth (terrible excuse I know) yet starts that partnership for the 3rd game in a row and Sissoko in every match since the restart.

Is #TottenhamPenaltyBingo a thing, Marc?

Team news – Tottenham

Jose Mourinho makes three changes for the north London derby.

Jan Vertonghen, Erik Lamela and Steven Bergwijn drop to the bench having started during the painful goalless draw with Bournemouth.

Davison Sanchez, Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son are brought into the side as Tottenham try to inject some attacking menace.

Team news – Arsenal

Mikel Arteta makes one change from the side who drew 1-1 with Leicester.

In-form teenager Bukayo Saka drops to the bench with Nicolas Pepe starting in his place. There’s no Mesut Ozil again but I’m not sure that’ll come as a surprise.

Starting XI

Team news arrives. Interesting. Bukayo Saka benched for Arsenal…

Tottenham XI: Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Davies, Sissoko, Winks, Lo Celso, Son, Kane, Moura.

Subs: Gazzaniga, Vertonghen, Lamela, Sessegnon, Bergwijn, Ndombele, Skipp, Fernandes, Tanganga.

Arsenal XI: Martinez, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Tierney, Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang.

Subs: Macey, Sokratis, Torreira, Maitland-Niles, Holding, Soares, Nelson, Willock, Saka.

What’s on?

Plenty. We have four Premier League fixtures today and one of those has already finished.

Wolves battered a woeful Everton side from pillar to post at Molineux, winning 3-0 to move back above Sheffield United into sixth position.

Aston Villa are currently beating Crystal Palace 1-0 thanks to Trezeguet’s first-half goal. Crystal Palace’s Mamadou Sakho actually scored the opener but VAR bizarrely disallowed it.

Just VAR being VAR…

And we finish the feast of football at the Vitality Stadium, where Bournemouth entertain Leicester. Massive game at both ends of the table. Delicious.

Afternoon…

Hello everyone and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Spurs vs Arsenal from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Everyone alright? I visited the pub for the first time since lockdown last night. It was… it was OK.

Jostling at the bar and awkwardly trying to make eye contact with the staff is a thing of the past.

And I’d also say that… sorry, you’re not here to listen to me banging on about the pub.

We have a game of football to look forward to and it’s a rather significant one. Mikel Arteta and Jose Mourinho go toe-to-toe in the north London derby.

Both sides HAVE to win to have any chance of securing a Europa League spot for next season. Plenty at stake so let’s get started!
