Arsenal and Tottenham headline Sunday’s Premier League derby day. 

With the action kicking off between west London rivals Chelsea and Fulham at Stamford Bridge, the north London teams pak each other at the Emirates Stadium before Merseysiders Liverpool and Everton do battle at Anfield. 

There will be more than just local bragging rights to fight for, with Spurs and the Gunners separated by just three log points in third and fifth place respectively. 

Passion, though, will be the deciding factor in these games according to Spurs captain Hugo Lloris, who will have to keep out the likes of Arsenal hitman Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. 

The France goalkeeper says: “We know it is more than a game for both clubs and for both [sets of] fans.

“That type of game you play more with passion and desire.

“It is going to be interesting to face Arsenal this season with a new manager.

“They have a good energy and they have had some very good results in the last few weeks so it is going to be a very good game for both teams.”
