Tottenham vs Arsenal Stats
- Tottenham are looking to win three consecutive home league games against Arsenal for the first time since August 1961.
- Tottenham are unbeaten in all eight of their Premier League games under Antonio Conte, the best unbeaten start for a Spurs manager in their league history (W5 D3). The last manager whose first league defeat with Spurs came in a north London derby was Ossie Ardiles, who fell to a 1-0 home loss to Arsenal in August 1993.
- Spurs manager Antonio Conte has won just one of his eight meetings with Arsenal in all competitions (D4 L3), with all of these coming as Chelsea manager between 2016 and 2018. Of clubs he’s faced at least five times in his managerial career, against no side does the Italian have a lower win rate than against the Gunners (12.5%).
- Tottenham striker Harry Kane is the top scorer in north London derby history in all competitions, netting 11 goals in his 16 games for Spurs against Arsenal. However, he’s not scored in either of his last two appearances against the Gunners, his longest drought against them in his career.
- Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka has been directly involved in a goal in each of his last five Premier League games, scoring four and assisting two in these matches. If he registers a goal or assist in this match, he’d be the youngest to do so in six consecutive appearances in the competition’s history (20 years 133 days).

Tottenham vs Arsenal Predictions
Tottenham Hotspur may have been knocked out of the Europa Conference League and more recently the EFL Cup under Antonio Conte, but their league form under the Italian has been near-perfect so far. The Lilywhites are unbeaten in their first eight games under the former Chelsea boss, which is the best unbeaten start any Spurs boss in history has enjoyed.
After losing to his former club in the EFL semi-final in midweek however, Conte will feel that his side are in need of a derby day victory this weekend, not only for bragging rights but also for a pivotal three points in the race for the top four. As things stand, Spurs are sitting in sixth place, two points behind their Sunday opponents Arsenal.
However, the Gunners will be acutely aware of the fact that their arch-rivals have two games in hand at this point in time and both sides will be wary of the form of West Ham, who currently occupy that coveted fourth spot. What’s more, Arsenal make the short trip to Tottenham this weekend on the back of a three game winless run.
That stat doesn’t quite tell the full story however. Although Mikel Arteta will have been frustrated by his team’s performance in their FA Cup Third Round loss to Nottingham Forest last weekend, his side were very unfortunate to lose 2-1 to Manchester City and battled hard in midweek to secure a first-leg draw in their own EFL Cup semi-final against Liverpool despite being reduced to ten men thanks to Granit Xhaka’s first-half red card.
Bukayo Saka is in fine form at the moment, scoring four times and assisting twice in his last five Premier League matches. The 20 year old could become the first Englishman to score in both North London derbies for Arsenal in one season since Ian Wright back in 1993/1994 with a goal here.
Of course, matches between these two great rivals are often quite heated affairs. Spurs have the poorer disciplinary record of the two in more recent meetings, particularly in the early stages. Spurs have been shown the first card in each of the last five North London derby matches.
