According to stats from OLBG, the North London derby is the dirtiest of all derbies in the Premier League, based on the number of fouls and cards in each clash.

With the North London derby and Manchester derby set to be played on the same weekend, there has been a lot of debate raging on social media regarding which the bigger derby is.

There is no doubt that the clashes between Spurs and Arsenal have been among the most entertaining in terms of goals and drama over the last couple of decades.

According to OLBG’s data, the NLD has also been the feistiest derby in England since 2010.

It is revealed that the clashes between Tottenham and Arsenal have seen more red cards and yellow cards than any other matches during that time.

There have reportedly been a total of seven red cards and 115 yellow cards in the matches between the two sides since 2010/11.

The most recent of those red cards came the last time the two sides met, with Rob Holding being sent off at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium back in May.

Since the 2010/11 season, there have been 24 North London Derbies, with 0.29 red cards per game, 4.79 yellow cards per game, and 21.25 fouls per game.

There is likely going to be more than a few yellows on Saturday, given that the likes of Granit Xhaka, Cristian Romero and Richarlison are going to be on the pitch. One would not bet against the game involving a red card, given what is at stake.
