Latest EPL standings as well as fixtures and results are found below the predictions.

It’s the first North London derby of the English Premier League season, as Tottenham and Arsenal collide at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

There is much more than pride at stake on Sunday, too, with the hosts bidding to remain at the top of the EPL table and the visitors desperate to climb the ladder.

The Gunners are plumbing the depths and have lost five times already this season, loitering 14th in the table as the hectic winter schedule looms large.

Defeat to Wolves at the Emirates Stadium last Sunday has left Mikel Arteta in dire straits, as the Spaniard tries to cling on to his first coaching role.

Nicolas Pepe is suspended, while Gabriel Martinelli is missing through injury for the visitors.

Thomas Partey and David Luiz, meanwhile, stand a chance of featuring, with Rob Holding a possibility to start in defence.

Tottenham are flying under the wise old tutelage of Jose Mourinho, top of the table on goal difference from reigning champions Liverpool at the start of this weekend.

Fellow London rivals Chelsea did at least peg Spurs back to a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

Erik Lamela is ruled out through injury, with star striker Harry Kane also a fitness concern.

Carlos VInicius and Sergio Reguilon are also doubtful for Mourinho, as he sets out to make life very difficult indeed for the man in the opposing dugout.
