In the Premier League era, Tottenham Hotspur haven’t had many memorable days to remember in the North London derby. However with the tide starting to turn, we’ve put together a quick snapshot of five memorable Tottenham victories against Arsenal.
Last season was the first time Tottenham had finished above our hated rivals in the league in 22 years and something tells me that under boss Mauricio Pochettino, this won’t be a flash in the pan.
One stat that sticks in my mind ahead of Saturday is the fact that Tottenham have won only two of their last 32 away league visits to face Arsenal. There’ll always be that ‘Spursy’ paranoia sticking in my mind after so many years of mediocrity.
Take a look below at our top five Spurs matches against Arsenal in recent memory.
29th October 2008 - Arsenal 4-4 Tottenham Hotspur
Ok, so this wasn’t a Spurs victory. However this game had it all. David Bentley gave us the lead with a stunning long-range effort against his former side, only for Arsenal to take control and lead 4-2. Jermaine Jenas brought the score back to 4-3 in the 89th minute, then up stepped Aaron Lennon to bury a Luka Modric effort which hit the post to create absolute scenes in the away end.
