- Arsenal have drawn 14 league games this season, more than any other team in the Premier League.
- Eight away league games have been drawn by Arsenal, second to Sheffield United with nine.
- The last two games played between these two sides have both ended in score draws.
This weekend’s North London Derby sees Tottenham hosting Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday. Spurs are ninth in the table, a point behind Arsenal in eighth place. If Arsenal don’t win the FA Cup then an eighth place finish will be enough for a Europa League spot if Manchester City’s European ban is confirmed next week. Arsenal shook off a bad opening to the Premier League return by following up two successive defeats with three wins. This positive streak was broken by a draw with Leicester but Mikel Arteta will take positives from that draw with the Foxes. Arsenal have scored at least two goals in four of their last five matches in all competitions.
In their last outing against Bournemouth, Spurs failed to register a shot on target. Spurs are better at home and have won four of their last six Premier League matches there. A win for Tottenham will see them go ahead of their rivals. Arsenal had been poor but they have won their last two away games.
