Good morning and welcome to Nigerianeye's live commentary of the Premier League clash between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur from the Emirates Stadium.

Sixth-placed Arsenal sit four points and three places behind their bitter rivals entering this afternoon's clash.

Three of the last four fixtures between these two teams have finished level – including a 1-1 draw in the corresponding Premier League match last term.

Stay tuned for live minute-by-minute updates of the action.

10 min Davies fires the ball straight out of play as Arsenal continue to press high up the field. The home supporters like what they are seeing here. The team in red and white look very much up for this.

8 min Well, sometimes games of this ilk are cagey, but that has not been the case thus far. Eight minutes on the clock and this is a proper derby as both teams continue to fly into challenges here.

6 min SAVE! Cech has to keep out a powerful strike from Kane following a mistake from Koscielny, whose header was weak. Both defences are making mistakes in the early moments.

6 min Alli has the chance to find Eriksen with a pass as Arsenal are caught up the field, but the England international takes too long, and the home side can clear their lines. Arsenal then have a half-chance as Sanchez feeds Lacazette in a dangerous area, but the forward's effort is too high.

4 min As expected, it has been all-action in the early stages, with both teams battling for possession. It might take a while for both to settle into some sort of rhythm. Nice flow to the game thus far.

2 min... it must be said that there is a wonderful atmosphere inside the stadium this afternoon - let's hope that the football matches it. It is a rainy afternoon in the capital, which has made the pitch moist. You do get the feeling that there will be goals in this one. Hopefully I have not jinxed it.

0 min KICKOFF! Tottenham kick things off at the Emirates Stadium...
