"A north London derby is always a special occasion and we hope Saturday’s match will be remembered for both the action on the pitch, as well as the positive support for both teams off it.
"All fans should be aware that breaches of stadium regulations – including anti-social behaviour - will not be tolerated. Arsenal Football Club does not tolerate discrimination of any sort, whether it be on the pitch or in the stands."
Supporters attending the match have been encouraged to report any unruly behaviour to stewards, or to notify authorities by text messaging a special number.
