Arsenal have won just two of their last 10 Premier League games against rivals Spurs (W2 D5 L3), with both wins coming at the Emirates in the previous two seasons.

Spurs have won one of their last 26 Premier League visits to Arsenal (W1 D10 L15).

Spurs won 2-0 at the Emirates in the League Cup last season, 17 days after losing there in the league against Arsenal.

Five of the last 14 goals scored in Premier League games between Arsenal and Spurs have been penalties – no Premier League fixture has seen more penalties scored (18, level with Everton vs Newcastle United).

Arsenal were beaten by Crystal Palace in their last home Premier League London derby – they haven’t lost back-to-back home derbies since February 2006, when they lost to Chelsea and West Ham.

Arsenal have won more Premier League games (60) and have a higher win rate (61%) than any other side in games played in September. They also haven’t lost a north London derby in the month in any competition since 1969 (2-3) winning six and drawing four since.

Along with pointless Watford, Tottenham are one of just two sides to have conceded first in all three of their Premier League games so far this season. The Lilywhites last shipped the first goal in their first four Premier League games back in 2008-09.

Tottenham are winless in their last seven away league games (D1 L6), last enduring a longer winless run on the road between December 2011-April 2012 (8 games).

Tottenham’s Harry Kane has scored nine goals in all competitions against Arsenal – only Emmanuel Adebayor and Bobby Smith (both 10) have ever scored in more matches between the two sides in history.

Christian Eriksen is one goal away from becoming the fifth player to score 50 in the Premier League for Tottenham.
