We got you covered from now till the end of the day. We start with a big one as Arsenal host Tottenham in today's early kick-off in the Premier League.


Team news are out. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta makes two changes from the side that won 3-0 at Brentford, with captain Martin Odegaard and Oleksandr Zinchenko returning from injury to replace Fábio Vieira and Kieran Tierney, who drop to the bench.

Arsenal XI: Ramsdale, White, Partey, Gabriel, Saka, Odegaard, Jesus, Martinelli, Saliba, Xhaka, Zinchenko.

Subs: Turner, Tierney, Nketiah, Holding, Tomiyasu, Vieira, Lokonga, Nelson, Marquinhos.


Meanwhile, Tottenham manager Antonio Conte makes three changes from the side that thrashed Leicester City, with Emerson Royal and Cristian Romero coming in for Davinson Sánchez and Ryan Sessegnon, while Richarlison replaces Dejan Kulusevski, who is out due to an injury.


What do you make of that lineup folks? Arsenal fans are you happy with Arteta's decision to bring back Odegaard? Share your thoughts with us on our Facebook page and Twitter page.


If you are a betting man, you can bet on Harry Kane to score anytime in the game. The English man has scored more goals (13) than any other player in the North London derby

Arsenal head into the game as the slight favorites and will be looking end Spurs unbeaten start to the season. Meanwhile, Conte's men can go top if they beat the leaders this afternoon.


Meanwhile, here is something to get you in the mood for the game. Watch the video above.

Five minutes to go before kickoff, what's your prediction?


And we are off at the Emirates.


Arsenal showing intent right from the start. By the way, the referee for today is Anthony Taylor.


Arsenal have been the better side inside the opening five minutes. Spurs are yet to find their feet in the game. Still early stages, though.


Don't forget there are more games to come later in the day, with Chelsea and Liverpool in action.

Oh! That was close. Xhaka almost put Arsenal ahead with a shot from outside.


Goal! What a strike from Thomas Partey to put Arsenal ahead. The Ghana star fired in a superb curler from following a layoff from Xhaka. It has been coming and it's the least they deserved.


And just like that, Spurs restore parity. It's that man again Harry Kane. The English man continued his fine record in the North London derby after converting from the spot following a foul on Richarlison.


Well, that's 14 goals in the North London derby for Kane. He is also the first player to score 100 away goals in the Premier League. What a player.

To be fair, Arsenal have reacted well to the equaliser, but they are vulnerable on the break and that should worry Arteta

Partey's beautiful opener
Kane makes no mistake from the spot

And breathe. It's half-time at the Emirates. The Gunners started like a house on fire through Partey's stunner but Kane's penalty restored parity for Spurs. What do you make of that half?


We are back at the Emirates. By the way, the Emirates paid tribute to Coolio by playing his smash hit 'Gangster's Paradise as the players walked out. RIP to one of hip hop's greats.


Goal! Arsenal retake the lead through Gabriel Jesus.


The Brazilian striker capitalised on an error from Lloris, who spilled Saka's shot. A moment to forget for the World Cup winner.


An interesting stat. Gabriel Jesus has never lost a Premier League game in which he scored. Game over for Spurs? 40 minutes to find out

Reactions to Jesus goal

Red Card. It gets worse for Spurs as Emerson Royale is dismissed following a dangerous tackle on Martinelli


Goal! Game over? Xhaka's redemption continues as he fires in a third into the bottom corner. Arsenal 3-1 Spurs.


Arsenal will go four points clear at the top today, but Manchester City can claw it back to one point if they beat Manchester United tomorrow.


Meanwhile the team news for the 3 PM matches are out.


Jordan Henderson returns to the Liverpool lineup as Roberto Firmino leads the line against Brighton.

It is game over at the Emirates. Arsenal hand Spurs their first league defeat of the season. Goals from Partey, Jesus and Xhaka were enough for Arteta's men after Kane had restored parity for Spurs.

North London is Red
This Spurs fan did not take the result well
No love (Not that Eminem song) for Emerson today.

Meanwhile, in Naples, the man they call Khvicha Kvaratskhelia aka Kvaradona has just scored the third for Napoli.

Goal! What is going on at Anfield? Leandro Trossard has just put Brighton ahead after just four minutes in De Zerbi's first game in charge

A reminder of the scores as the second half resumes

Goal! Aribo scores his second of the season to put Southampton ahead but Everton respond immediately through Andre Onana. 1-1 at St. Mary's


Boom! Liverpool restore parity and it is that man again Roberto Firmino. In his usual style, the Brazilian did well to turn Lewis Dunk before finishing past Sanchez


Goal! Quick turnaround for Everton.  Dwight McNeil drives the ball into the back of the net to give Lampard's men the lead

It's ~Morbin~ Bobby time.

Goal! The comeback is complete at Anfield as Adam Webster headed into his own net. Jurgen Klopp's men have looked different in the second half.


Meanwhile, Miguel Almiron gets his second of the game as Newcastle make it four at Craven Cottage

Everton get their second league win of the season despite Aribo's goal for Southampton

It is full time across all grounds in the 3pm kick-offs. Attention now turns to San Siro where Inter Milan are hosting AS Roma. Jose Mourinho has made a bold call by dropping Tammy Abraham and playing Nicolo Zaniolo up front.


Goal disallowed. Inter thought they had taken the lead through Edin Dzeko, but the goal was ruled out for offside following a VAR review.


It's been coming! Inter take the lead through Di Marco, who is having a fine week. The left-back finished with his right foot following a ball from Barella. Rui Patricio should have done better, though.


Paulo Dybala draws Roma level with a superb volley that Handanovic could not keep out. Game on!


Half-time at San Siro. It's Inter Milan 1 Roma 1

Back underway at San Siro


Big blow for A Roma as Dybala is forced off for Tammy Abraham. By the way, Mourinho is not on the touchline for Roma
