The game of the weekend takes place in North London this weekend as Tottenham Hotspur travel to the Emirates to face bitter rivals Arsenal in the Premier League.
Arsenal currently sit 4th in the Premier League with four wins and one draw from their first five games of the season.
In contrast to last season where they started like a freight train, the Gunners have been steadily going about their business in the early portion of the season without really pulling up any trees.
Regardless, they'll be happy with where they stand currently given they've had to integrate a couple of new faces into the fold and they'll feel like performances are steadily improving with each passing week.
They're coming into this game off the back of what was arguably their best performance of the campaign thus far as they dismantled Dutch side PSV Eindhoven 4-0 at the Emirates in midweek.
Goals from Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, Gabriel Jesus and Martin Ødegaard secured the three points in what was a dominant showing by Mikel Arteta's men.
The Gunners still need to improve in order to to find the level they reached last season and if they want to challenge for major honours again they'll need to have more luck with injuries than they did last season, but given the injuries sustained by Jürrien Timber and Gabriel Martinelli they've haven't got off to the best start on that front.
They're coming into what is the biggest game of their season so far against a side bang in form so they'll need to be at their very best to take all three points off Tottenham and with that derby day bragging rights.
Tottenham Hotspur currently sit 2nd in the Premier League with four wins and one draw from their first five games of the season.
Spurs have arguably been the league's surprise package so far this season given few people had them penned in as serious Champions League contenders, let alone 2nd in the table at this stage, coming into the campaign.
New manager Ange Postecoglou has transformed the North London club's fortunes in more ways than one and there appears to be a reinvigorated optimism surrounding the club alongside a connection between players and fans that has been absent since Mauricio Pochettino's days at the helm.
They're coming into this game off the back of a dramatic 2-1 win at home to Sheffield United that saw them notch two goals deep into stoppage-time, Richarlison (90+8') and Dejan Kulusevski (90+10'), to overturn a one goal deficit.
The manner of the win was emblematic of a side different to the Spurs of old given they displayed a kind of dogged relentlessness that one does not usually associate with Tottenham; in essence it wasn't very "Spursy", as people so often say.
Whether it really was the moment Tottenham turned a corner of whether it was a stroke of fortune for a side that seem to have luck on their side will be revealed in time, but there are specific features of Tottenham's form that give the impression this is far more than a flash in the pan.
A win here would be a giant landmark in their revival and while they're the underdogs it's one of the best chances they've had to win at the Emirates for quite some time.
For our Arsenal vs. Tottenham prediction, we're going for a 3-2 win for the home side.
