Tottenham said in a statement: “The final round of Premier League transfer selections has been completed – including a postponed date for the north London derby at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

“We will play Arsenal at home on Thursday 12 May (7.45pm) in a key clash that will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

“Meanwhile, our May games against Liverpool and Burnley will now be televised. Our trip to Anfield stays on Saturday 7 May but now starts at 7.45pm and is broadcast live on BT Sport. There are subsidized trips for fans.

“Burnley at home remains on Sunday 15 May but will now kick off at 12pm, also live on BT Sport.”

The clash will be a fine spectacle in the inaugural north London derby, to be played in front of a packed crowd at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The re-ordering of the game has actually been compared to last season’s vibrant finale of the Formula 1 Drivers’ Championship.

“It’s like a Formula 1 moment,” O’Hara told the Sports Bar on talkSPORT.

“You think of last season, the moment of Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen when they rigged the race to make it brilliant for the public.

“But actually it was unfair to Hamilton. Is that what we’re about to begin to see [in football] now?

“Fixing rigging because they’re like, ‘This is going to be brilliant for the viewing audience, we’re going to get higher attendances, who cares what the clubs think!’

“As a Spurs fan I’m actually really happy about that because it gives us an opportunity to put some pressure on Arsenal, to go into the last week of the season and play a big game.”

The original game was postponed following a COVID outbreak in the Arsenal squad

“When you play in the Premier League you want to maximize a game like this,” added Sports Bar co-host Jason Cundy.

“You may be watching one of the biggest games of the season and one of the biggest north London derbies we’ve seen in years.

“Why not maximize the viewing audience, the interest in the game?

“Neither team has Europe [to deal with]they have had a lot of free time, so there can be no complaints.

“I totally understand why they did it and I would have done the same.”
