Three events you do not want to miss


Arsenal v Tottenham Saturday, 1.30pm, BBC One

A north London derby is always a raucous affair, but this one is likely to be noisier than ever with a Women’s Super League record crowd expected at the Emirates Stadium. More than 40,000 tickets have been sold for the match, which will beat the previous record crowd for a WSL match of 38,262 – also a north London derby fixture, at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, in 2019. Both clubs began their league campaigns with victory, Arsenal thrashing Brighton and Hove Albion 4-0 at a sold-out Meadow Park and Spurs beating Leicester City 2-1 at the King Power Stadium. Arsenal beat Spurs 3-0 at the Emirates last season.

England v India, third ODI Saturday, 11am, Sky Sports

England return to the “Home of Cricket” for the first time since they won the World Cup against the same opposition in 2017. This is the third of a three-match series against India as Lisa Keightley coaches the side for the last time after three years in the role.

England won the three-match Twenty20 series but, regardless of how the ODI series is poised, both sides will want to experience victory at the historic ground.
