Stat Attack: Spurs vs Arsenal

0

Tottenham have lost just one of their last seven Premier League games against Arsenal (W2 D4). 

Arsenal are aiming to win both home and away against their north London rivals in the Premier League for just the fourth time in the same season, doing so previously in 2004-05, 2007-08 and 2013-14. 

This is the first meeting between Spurs and Arsenal at Wembley since April 1993, when they met in an FA Cup semi-final, with Arsenal winning 1-0 from a Tony Adams goal. 

This fixture has seen both sides score in the game on 34 occasions in the Premier League – more than any other fixture in the competition.

Tottenham have dropped 37 points from leading positions in Premier League games against Arsenal – more than any team has against another in the competition’s history.

Arsenal have won more Premier League London derbies away from home (52) and in total (121) than any other side in the competition.

Harry Kane has scored six goals in six Premier League games against Arsenal, only failing to score in one those games – the reverse fixture this season. The England striker has scored four times in three home Premier League games against Arsenal. 

Harry Kane has scored 21 goals in 32 Premier League London derby matches, averaging 0.66 goals per game. Of players to have played 20+ London derbies in the Premier League, only Thierry Henry has a better ratio (0.73 – 43 goals in 59 apps). 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored four goals in four previous appearances against Tottenham Hotspur in all competitions; once in the Champions League (2 games) and three goals in the Europa League (2 games).

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has assisted three goals in 120 minutes of Premier League action for Arsenal so far; the same tally that Alexis Sanchez managed in 1507 minutes of action for the Gunners in 2017-18.
