Ahead of Sunday’s game, both clubs are actively encouraging all fans to focus on getting behind their team and enjoying what promises to be a great match.

A north London derby is always a special occasion and we hope this match will be remembered for both the action on the pitch as well as the positive support for both teams off it.

The Metropolitan Police have informed both clubs that they will be monitoring for offensive chanting and anti-social behaviour both inside and outside White Hart Lane stadium on Sunday, and any behaviour of this nature will result in arrest.

Arsenal Football Club does not tolerate discrimination of any sort and will be working closely with Tottenham Hotspur and the Metropolitan Police in order to take action against anyone heard using abusive, offensive or obscene language.

We thank our fans for their continued fantastic support.
