Arsenal vs Tottenham head to head stats and records: Let us take a look at the stats between the two rival clubs from North London ahead of their Premier League Clash.
Arsenal will take on Tottenham Hotspurs at the Emirates Stadium this weekend. The North London derby is a fiercely fought contest between the local rivals, neither of whom like to concede to the other. A decade earlier, Arsenal were a force in the Premier League while Tottenham lay in the mid-table. The resurgence of the Lily whites has ensured a much more gruelling contest between the two now.
Despite Tottenham’s meteoric rise in recent times, the Emirates still remain a fortress hard to conquer for them. Tottenham have only beaten Arsenal twice away in the Premier League with their last win coming in November 2010. Although they did beat the Gunners 2-0 at the Emirates in the League Cup last December.
If Tottenham beat Arsenal on Sunday, this will only be the second ever time they beat them in consecutive away matches. The last time they did this was in 1925 and 1926. However, Mauricio Pochettino’s men are in a slump of sorts especially when it comes to playing away from home. They have only won 3 of their last 12 matches in all competition and are yet to win an away game from their last 7.
Arsenal aren’t very solid at the moment either. They recently lost their match against Liverpool 3-1 with their solitary goal coming after the result was a forgone conclusion. Both sides desperately need a victory to boost their morale and hopefully this will ignite a fiery contest between the two sides.

Tottenham have had an average campaign so far. They registered a win against Aston Villa in their opening match after coming from behind. They then held their own against Man City in a 2-2 draw. However, they received a little help from VAR and should consider themselves lucky for holding on to a point. Their luck ran out in the next match though as Newcastle United beat them 1-0 with VAR denying them this time around.
Arsenal started the tournament with a shaky win against Newcastle United. They registered their second win in the next match against Burnley with both Lacazette and Aubameyang firing while Ceballos looked solid in the middle. However, their match against Liverpool exposed how frail a side they still were and Unai Emery will hope to put the drubbing behind them.
