This season’s first edition of the North London derby takes place Saturday, with Tottenham making the short journey to local rival Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium.
The hosts will be hoping to continue their rich vein of form this week against their neighbors, having won six of their opening seven Premier League games so far this season. The Gunners sit at the top of the table, one point clear of defending champions Manchester City, going into today’s early kickoff, though this Tottenham side will be no pushover.
Spurs are also just a point off the pace being set by Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal and remain unbeaten in the 2022 Premier League campaign thus far, with five wins and two draws. Before the international break, Antonio Conte’s men put Leicester City to the sword with a 6-2 home win, including a 13-minute hat trick from star Son Heung-min.
Below, we’ll outline the best live TV streaming services to use to watch the game live wherever you are in the world.

How to watch the Arsenal vs. Tottenham game online from anywhere using a VPN
If you find yourself unable to view the game locally, you may need a different way to watch the game — that’s where using a VPN can come in handy. A VPN is also the best way to stop your ISP from throttling your speeds on game day by encrypting your traffic, and it’s also a great idea if you’re traveling and find yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network, and you want to add an extra layer of privacy for your devices and logins.
With a VPN, you’re able to virtually change your location on your phone, tablet or laptop to get access to the game. So if your internet provider or mobile carrier has stuck you with an IP address that incorrectly shows your location in a blackout zone, a VPN can correct that problem by giving you an IP address in your correct, nonblackout area. Most VPNs, like our Editors’ Choice, ExpressVPNmake it really easy to do this.
Using a VPN to watch or stream sports is legal in any country where VPNs are legal, including the US and Canada, as long as you have a legitimate subscription to the service you’re streaming. You should be sure your VPN is set up correctly to prevent leaks: Even where VPNs are legal, the streaming service may terminate the account of anyone it deems to be circumventing correctly applied blackout restrictions.
