Tottenham Hotspur have won five of their last seven home Premier League games against Arsenal (D1 L1), including each of the last two; only once in their top-flight history have Spurs won three consecutively at home against the Gunners (between January 1960 and August 1961).

Arsenal are looking to complete a Premier League double over rival Spurs for only the fourth time, also doing so in 2004-05, 2007-08 and 2013-14.

The away team have won just one of the last 16 Premier League fixtures between Spurs and Arsenal.

This will be the fifth meeting between Tottenham and Arsenal at Wembley, with Spurs winning two (D1 L1). They could become the first team to beat the Gunners on three separate occasions at the stadium.

Tottenham haven’t lost three consecutive Premier League games since November 2012, the third defeat of which came against Arsenal.

Arsenal have won five of their last six Premier League games (L1), as many as they had in their previous 13 in the competition (W5 D5 L3).

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has never lost a home Premier League game against Arsenal (P5 W3 D2 L0) – the only manager to have managed more home games against the Gunners without losing is Jose Mourinho (9).

Spurs striker Harry Kane has scored eight of Spurs’ last 11 Premier League goals against Arsenal; only Wayne Rooney (12), Robbie Fowler (10) and Peter Crouch (9) have scored more Premier League goals against the Gunners than Kane’s tally of eight.

Harry Kane has scored eight goals in eight Premier League games between Spurs and Arsenal, a joint-record in the competition along with Emmanuel Adebayor (8 in 13 games).

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored more London derby goals than any other player in the Premier League this season (6).
