Image: SpursWeb

Tottenham have dropped 42 points from winning positions in the Premier League against Arsenal; 11 more than any against any other side in the competition.

Arsenal have lost just one of their last 27 Premier League home games against Tottenham (W15 D11 L1), a 2-3 loss in November 2010 after being two goals ahead.

Tottenham are winless in their last eight away league games (D2 L6), last enduring such a run on the road between December 2011-April 2012 (also eight games).

Since his Premier League debut in August 2016, no player has conceded more penalties in the competition than Arsenal’s Granit Xhaka (5).

Since Mauricio Pochettino took over ahead of the 2014-15 season, Spurs have only won three of their 27 Premier League away games against fellow “Big Six” opponents (W3 D9 L15), including none of their last six (D2 L4).

No player has scored more goals in games between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in all competitions than Spurs’ Harry Kane (10 – joint-most with Emmanuel Adebayor and Bobby Smith).

Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored in seven successive Premier League starts at the Emirates; only Thierry Henry in October 2000 went on a longer run at home for the Gunners in the competition (nine at Highbury).

Harry Kane’s penalty was the 19th scored in games between Arsenal and Tottenham in the Premier League; the most in a single fixture in the competition’s history.

Arsenal have recorded 13 errors leading to goals in the Premier League since the start of last season; the most of any club in the competition. In fact, Bernd Leno has more errors than any other player in this period (6).

Spurs’ Christian Eriksen has now scored 50 Premier League goals – the first Danish player to reach this landmark – whilst also becoming the first Spurs player to register both 50+ goals and assists for the club in the competition.
