BT Sport will be showing not one, but two London derbies during a packed late winter schedule next year, including Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal at White Hart Lane. 

The sports channel have an impressive line-up of action for February and March, with a number of top-half clashes being shown exclusively within a short period of time. 

The North London derby is followed by two crunching ties, with Liverpool playing host to Spurs and Everton visiting Stamford Bridge to play league leaders Chelsea, which supply what is sure to be some thrilling midweek action. 

BT Sport will be showing another London derby, Tottenham at home to West Ham on February 22nd, before Arsenal welcome the Toffees to the Emirates Stadium on the first day of March. 

In addition to the Premier League action, on Valentines Day BT Sport will be showing exclusive live games from the fifth round of the FA Cup. 

Simon Green, head of BT Sport, is enthusiastic and excited ahead of the fantastic matches the channel have scheduled in future months. 

“We’ve got a fantastic selection of absorbing matches for BT Sport viewers over these weeks. The intense rivalry of the north London derby never wanes and should make for a brilliant atmosphere, especially as both clubs will be looking for points to secure European places," he said.

“We’ve also secured a midweek double to look forward to, with Barclays Premier League games on the Tuesday and Wednesday that follow. And we start March with a clash between two teams who are usually battling for places in the top six.


Whilst all the fixtures are sure to provide us with some thrilling action, the North London derby remains the pick of the available fixtures on show - a game that never fails to entertain.

Both sides are lower in the table than they may like at this point of the season, with Arsene Wenger's men sitting in sixth position, just two points ahead of Spurs.

When the tie comes around in February, it is likely that the two teams may remain just as close in the table, which will make for a great rivalry, including all of the typical aspects that we have learnt to expect from these matches.  

Thrilling encounters

Last season saw Arsenal take four points from the two clashes, and the Gunners won the fixture a whopping 5-2, TWICE in 2012. 

One of the most thrilling clashes between the two sides in Premier League history came back in 2004, when Wenger's men were triumphant 5-4 winners in an absolute cracker.
