The north London derby: Stats that matter

1) Tottenham have seen over 2.5 goals in their last 8 matches against Arsenal in all competitions.
2) Tottenham have been drawing at half time and winning at full time in their last 3 matches in the Premier League.
3) Tottenham are undefeated in their last 11 matches in the Premier League.
4) Tottenham have scored at least 2 goals in their last 5 matches against Arsenal in all competitions.


5) The last two matches between the sides have ended 5-2 to the Gunners but both of those matches were at the Emirates and saw Spurs go ahead early on, with Arsenal not winning a game in normal time at White Hart Lane since 2007.

6) Whatever the outcome, entertainment is generally assured when the two sides meet, with 12 of the last 13 encounters going over 2.5 goals and the form of Gareth Bale, who has 11 goals in his last 10 games in all competitions, will worry even the most hardened Arsenal fan.

7) The visitors will therefore hope that Santi Cazorla can keep scoring, having netted 3 in his last 2 league games, and the battle in central areas will be key with Wilshere also looking back to his best. The home side will be happier with the draw to keep their rivals 4 points adrift and that may well be the most likely outcome.
