Arsenal vs. Tottenham Hotspur: Lineups and match thread

Paul Gilham

Come chat with Cartilage Free Captain as Tottenham Hotspur take on Arsenal in the North London Derby.

Happy Spursday, Spursland! Today, Tottenham Hotspur take on Arsenal at the Emirates. Because Arsenal have done virtually nothing this transfer window and Tottenham have signed seven seasoned first team professionals, this is obviously the most important game in the history of both clubs. If Spurs win, it means Arsenal are entering a tailspin like Leeds, only for the exact opposite reason. If Arsenal wins, Spurs spent all their money on crap players and will never recover from it.

Here's our lineup for the game.

I have no argument with this team. I don't really love Dembele and Paulinho in the same midfield, but Gylfi Sigurdsson hasn't been good so far, Lewis Holtby probably isn't all the way fit yet and our new signings are not ready to start.

And here's the Arsenal lineup.

The game kicks off at 4 p.m. local time, 11 a.m. ET. You can catch the game on Sky Sports 1 in the UK, NBC Sports Network in the United States and TSN in Canada.
