Sunday's north London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur at the Emirates Stadium is the standout fixture in Week 4 of the Premier League.

Arsenal vs. Tottenham

Arsenal and Tottenham will both be looking to get back to winning ways when they meet in the first north London derby of the season.

Gunners boss Unai Emery needs to pick up his side from a comprehensive defeat at Anfield, but he can take positives from the performance of record signing Nicolas Pepe:

The 24-year-old could continue in the starting XI against Tottenham, particularly with Alexandre Lacazette carrying an ankle injury:

Unai Emery confirms Alexandre Lacazette is still carrying the ankle injury he picked up at the end of pre-season. Could explain his omission from the France squad and his role from the bench against Liverpool. Only played 80 minutes so far in 2019/20, but "he is improving." #AFC

Emery will also need his side to improve defensively if they are to beat Tottenham. New signing David Luiz came under scrutiny after conceding a penalty for a tug on Mohamed Salah against the European champions.

However, the Brazilian is looking forward to taking on Spurs and said "it will be a special game for me, for sure," per Goal's Charles Watts.

Tottenham could welcome back midfielder Dele Alli for the trip to the Emirates Stadium, according to Matt Law at the Daily Telegraph.

Alli's return would be a boost for Mauricio Pochettino's men. Spurs were lacklustre and could not break down a disciplined Newcastle outfit in their previous fixture.

New signing Tanguy Ndombele missed that game through injury, and the midfielder is likely to sit out Sunday's match too, according to Football.London's Alasdair Gold.

Pochettino will be hoping striker Harry Kane can continue his fine goalscoring record against the Gunners:

The north London derby tends to produce plenty of drama. Home advantage may give Arsenal the edge in what should be a tense and testy encounter at the Emirates.

                

Burnley vs. Liverpool

Premier League leaders Liverpool are the only team in the top flight with a 100 per cent record and will aim to extend that run against Burnley at Turf Moor on Saturday.

The Reds have been in ominous form in their wins over Arsenal, Southampton and Norwich City, netting nine goals.

Mohamed Salah heads into the game in top form after an impressive brace against Arsenal:

Meanwhile, Burnley have not tasted victory since a win over Southampton on the opening weekend. They were also knocked out of the EFL Cup on Wednesday to League One side Sunderland.

Liverpool will need to be wary of striker Ashley Barnes. The 29-year-old has four goals in his past three matches to maintain his fine form in 2019:

The Reds will be favourites to secure their fourth Premier League win of the season, but Burnley can be awkward opponents and may prove difficult to beat at home.
