Seeking to continue their streak of Emirates supremacy against their arch nemesis, Arsenal play host to us for Sunday's blockbuster Premier League North London Derby. Both of us sit on 13 points from our opening five games of the new term, but Arsena side also come into the mouthwatering clash on the back of a Champions League thumping of PSV Eindhoven

Spurs
The script was written for Richarlison to play a starring role in our most recent showdown with Sheffield United, which came after the hitherto misfiring striker had admitted to seeking psychological help for off-field problems, having struggled to keep his emotions in check in a Brazil shirt during the international break.

Before Richarlison's introduction off the bench, we had fallen a goal behind in North London to Gustavo Hamer's strike and had no answer to Wes Foderingham's heroics - or indeed his time-wasting tactics - but the Blades number one was left red-faced right at the death, as Richarlison headed home the leveller before teeing up Kulusevski to fire home a sensational late winner in the 10th minute of added time.

Breaking our own record for the latest winning comeback in Premier League history - which was previously held by the Bergwijn-inspired 3-2 success at Leicester City – we remain without defeat in the top flight since Postecoglou took the reins and have only performed worse than a perfect Manchester City so far this term.

Thanks to last weekend's astonishing fightback, we have also kept up our streak of scoring at least twice in all of their Premier League games under Postecoglou so far, and not since the 1965-66 season have we sat on 13 points after five games, but few will need reminding of Conte’s's acrimonious exit several months after he also led us to our best start to a season last year.


Arsenal
For the past several years, Arsenal fans have been forced to witness us emerge to the Champions League theme on Tuesday and Wednesday nights while they were gunning for glory in the Europa League, but this time around, it was the Gunners' turn to prove that they warrant a reservation at the A PSV side unbeaten in 26 matches in all competitions did their best to flaunt their attacking firepower on a wet North London evening, but Arsenal rained on PSV's parade thanks to a flurry of goals from four usual suspects in Saka, Jesus, Odegaard and Trossard.

Facing a side as open as PSV may have come as somewhat of a relief for Arteta's men, who had previously struggled to penetrate a backs-against-the-wall Everton team before a moment of magic from the silky Trossard, who is unsurprisingly proving a more than capable deputy for the injured Martinelli.

A four-goal home draw with Fulham remains the only blot on the Gunners' 2023-24 notebook, and they sit 4thin the rankings owing to their respectable haul of 13 points from 15 on offer in the top flight, albeit below Liverpool andus owing to the goal difference column.


In fact, Arsenal are the only team in the top seven spots yet to hit double figures in goals this term, as Arteta adopts a slightly more conservative approach to his side's attacking play, but even the most optimistic of us Spurs fans will not be holding out hope of keeping the Gunners on nine top-flight goals this weekend.

Head-to-Head

We played our first game against Arsenal on Saturday 4th December 1909, in Woolwich, South London before they became our unwanted neighbours. They beat us 1-0 in that game. So the phrase one nil to the Arsenal also has a deep history!

We have played each other 193 times where we have won 61, they 82 with 50 draws.

In the league we have won 55, they 71 with 47 draws
In the League Cup we have won 4, they 7 with 3 draws
In the FA Cup we have won 2, they 4 with none drawn
