Scheduled for January, postponed until May, Tottenham and Arsenal will finally lock metaphorical horns in a potentially season-defining derby on Thursday night. The tale of the tape is simple: a win for the Gunners confirms Champions League football; a win for Spurs closes the gap to just the single point.
Mikel Arteta’s men have significantly turned the tide following a disastrous start to the campaign in which they lost their opening three matches. It seemed like a matter of when and not if Arteta would face the chopping block. But the occasionally-dubbed Pep Guardiola 2.0 has worked wonders to transform fortunes.
As things stand, the Gunners are ensconced in fourth, four points ahead of Spurs, so this game really is a six-pointer that could send shockwaves across the division. A fixture that tends to be a law unto itself, Thursday could be an absolute classic in this timeline of barnstormers. More than just bragging rights is on the line here.
Antonio Conte has got Spurs back firing on all cylinders, and despite the occasional wobble here and there, they look like a ruthlessly well-drilled side, exemplified by their recent 1-1 draw with Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp may not find the football pleasing, but Spurs are as rhythmic and devastating as they come when the likes of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dejan Kulusevski are in full motion.

Tottenham vs Arsenal match stats
Harry Kane simply loves a North London Derby. The former Arsenal academy product is the highest scorer in this fixture’s history, netting 11 goals in his 16 games for Spurs against the Gunners. He’s not scored in either of his last two appearances, the longest NLD drought of his career, so he will be desperate to put things right on Thursday.
The England international enters this showdown having attempted the second-most shots from outside the box in the Premier League this season among forwards (41) — only Raphinha (43) has a better return — so expect him to be winding up from distance whenever the ball reaches his proximity.
Another player who will be looking to impact this game for Spurs is January recruit Dejan Kulusevski. The Juventus loanee has registered a rather impressive eight assists for Spurs in the Premier League since joining, the most in the entire division in 2022, and quite incredibly, more than any Arsenal player across the whole campaign — Alexandre Lacazette is currently the club’s best playmaker with seven assists.

Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka were both on the scoresheet for Arsenal in the club’s 3-1 win over Spurs back in September at the Emirates. The last Englishman to score for the Gunners in both home and away fixtures against Spurs in a single season was Ian Wright in 1993/94.
