Bukayo Saka and Heung-min Son sent the internet into a meltdown after the two were spotted together ahead of this weekend's North London Derby.

The derby is one of the most revered and fearsome derbies in English football, pitting Arsenal against Tottenham Hotspur in a bid to paint the city 'red' or 'white'.

The two titans will come face to face for the first time this season on September 24 when Spurs make the short trip to the Emirates Stadium. It will be the first time that Ange Postecoglou will be taking part in this derby.

Both sides have made stellar starts to the campaign, dropping points only once in five games.

However, the derby had an intriguing twist when Saka and new Spurs skipper, Son were spotted taking photographs at Burberry SS24 during London Fashion Week.

In the video doing rounds on social media, the two number 7s appeared tense, with minimal discussion going on between them. Draped in unique outfits, the forwards fidgeted uneasily as the photographs were taken.

Fans reacts to Saka and Son's 'meeting'

The video has provoked fans, with the two expected to go for each other's throats this weekend.

@ArtGridGoal said:

"Fraternising during the Derby week!?"

@Firefisteric commented:

"NLD on Sunday and this is what your starboy’s doing?"

Spurs will head into the game well-rested, given they do not have midweek assignments.

Meanwhile, Arsenal will play their first UEFA Champions League game in six years when they welcome PSV Eindhoven to the Emirates Stadium.

Zinchenko makes bold Thomas Partey claim

Sports Brief also reported on Arsenal defender, Oleksandr Zinchenko's hot take on the best midfielder in the Premier League.

The Ukraine international has played with some of the world's best, including Rodri and Fernandinho during his time with Man City.

Zinchenko believes his current teammate, Thomas Partey is ahead of both an ex-Real Madrid star and a UCL final match-winner.
