Arsenal v Spurs – how to watch, team news, key information
Sat 13 March 2021, 13:45|Tottenham Hotspur
We make the short trip to the Emirates Stadium for the north London derby on Sunday (kick-off 4.30pm UK).
It’s Jose Mourinho’s first away trip to Arsenal as our Head Coach, having presided over victories in two home derbies since taking charge.
Here’s all the key information you need to know ahead of the match...
How can I watch the game?
The derby will be broadcast live in the UK on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main event, while BBC Radio 5 Live will carry radio commentary. Full worldwide broadcast listings are available here.
Kick-off is scheduled for 4.30pm UK.
Remember, you can also follow every kick of the action on Club channels via our live Match Centre, complete with live text and audio commentary, goal alerts and stats. The Match Centre is available on the Spurs Official app and here on tottenhamhotspur.com – all completely free. Log on from 3pm UK for all the build-up emanating live from inside the Emirates.
How will the teams line up?
Harry Kane is expected to be fit to play after being substituted during the second half of Thursday evening’s match against Dinamo Zagreb.
Giovani Lo Celso missed Thursday’s match with back pain but is aiming to return to action soon while Joe Rodon is available for selection again, having been ineligible to feature in the Europa League in midweek.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has no fresh injury concerns and should have a fully-fit squad to choose from.
Who is the referee and what colours will the teams be playing in?
Michael Oliver will referee Sunday’s match.
He’ll be assisted by Stuart Burt and Simon Bennett, with Kevin Friend as the fourth official.
In a change to recent trips to the Emirates, where we’ve previously played in navy socks, we’ll be in our usual home kit with white socks on Sunday.
That’s because Arsenal’s home kit this season features red socks alongside their red shirts and white shorts.
Our goalkeeper will be in green, with theirs in an all-black strip.
What will the weather be like?
Sunday’s forecast in north London is a bit of a mixed bag. There’ll be sunny intervals throughout the day, but light rain showers and a moderate breeze are expected in the hour leading up to kick-off.
Temperatures should be around 10 degrees.
