As far as Premier League fixtures go, this is one of the few showpiece occasions that always delivers on drama. Arguably the most heated game English football has to offer, it is once again a huge match for both sides in N17.
While Spurs have failed to completely convince under Antonio Conte thus far, they thrashed their bitter rivals at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium back in May and ended up pipping them to fourth place and Champions League qualification.
If things click into place, few can doubt their quality. The Gunners, meanwhile, are pushing for a first title in 19 years after a remarkable transformation under Mikel Arteta. Win away at Spurs and that would be quite a statement of intent, especially with Manchester City losing their own derby away at Manchester United yesterday.
Date, kick-off time and venue
The north London derby is scheduled for a 4.30pm GMT kick-off time on Sunday January 15, 2023.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in north London will host.

Tottenham vs Arsenal team news
In a major boost for Spurs, Dejan Kulusevski will be fit for the game, although Rodrigo Bentancur is still not yet ready to start along with Richarlison.
Yves Bissouma will likely partner Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg in central midfield after sitting out of the FA Cup win over Portsmouth with a slight injury.
The major decision comes in central defence. Clement Lenglet is pushing to sit alongside Cristian Romero and Eric Dier but Ben Davies is another option and boasts much more experience. Lucas Moura is still in the treatment room.
