Referee ___ Martin Atkinson

Team Form _____ Arsenal DLWWL ______ Spurs DDWDL ____ (All Competitions)


Aresnal have won just 2 of their last 10 Premier League (PL) games against us (W2 D5 L3), with both wins coming at the Emirates in the previous 2 seasons.

We have won 1 of our last 26 PL visits to Aresnal (W1 D10 L15), coming from 0-2 down to win 3-2 in November 2010. We won 2-0 at the Emirates in the League Cup last season, 17 days after losing there in the league. In all competitions, we have won consecutive away matches at Arsenal just once, winning in 1925 and 1926.

5 of the last 14 goals scored between us have been penalties, no PL fixture has seen more penalties scored (18, level with Everton and Newcastle). Arsenal were beaten by Crystal Palace in their last home PL London derby - they haven't lost back to back derbies since February 2006, when they lost to Chelsea and West Ham. They have won more PL games (60) and have a higher rate (61%) than any other side in games played in September. They also haven't lost a North London Derby in the month in any competition since 1969 (2-3) winning 6 and drawing 4 since.

Along with pointless Watford, we are one of just two sides to have conceded first in all 3 of our PL games so far this season. We last shipped the first goal in our first 4 PL games back in 2008-09. We are winless in our last 7 away league games (D1 L6), last enduring a longer winless run on the road between December 2011 - April 2012 (8 games).

Harry Kane has scored 9 goals in all competitions against Arsenal - only Emmanuel Adebayor and Bobby Smith (both 10) have ever scored more in matches between the two sides in history. And only Wayne Rooney (12) and Robbie Fowler (10) have scored more PL goals against the Gunners.

Eriksen is 1 goal away from becoming the 5th player to score 50 in the PL for us. However, he has never scored in 11 previous appearances in the competition against Arsenal - no side has he faced more without a goal.

Arsenal's boss Unai Emery has won all four of his home league games against Poch, winning 3 games with Valencia against Espanyol between 2009-10 and 2011-12 and with Arsenal last season against us.

The Newcastle result and Man City performance burst my pre season bubble and enthusiasm. I really don't know how to call this one

Well, for once the players can't be talking a good game ahead of the match, so hopefully means they will really be actually up for it on the day and we'll get our season (and Poch's career? :whistle:) back on track.

Im going full blown Liverpool Lawro... Spurs to win everything from now on. It's all just good fun anyway.

But I then there is blind loyalty, so here it goes.

It's a funny side this spurs team. On the form we have started with you'd expect city to put 4 past us. But they didn't. The goal the barcodes scored was against embarrassingly awful defending. So it it hard to judge, as the gooners still have a ropey defence. But, their attack is frighteningly quick and cohesive. Whereas ours seems to be lacking any movement, creativity or speed of thought. Yet we managed 2 goals against the best team in the league. But couldn't score against Newcastle....

MP needs to select Vertonghen if he wants to stop that front line. He would make a huge difference in my opinion.

Not really looking forward to this match to be honest. But, they will attack and leave themselves open. As opposed to the proverbial bus parking we have to overcome game after game.

Would take a draw all day long. I think that would be a steal tbh.

Emery looked to expose our RB last season and he will do it again. Luckily their defence is also shit.

Just think, if everyone had that attitude, there would never be meltdown on here!

Tomorrow will be the true test if things are going on behind tbf scenes.

If Eriksen and Jan don't start then I wouldn't put it past one or both to leave the following day. If their apparent falling out isn't transfer related (and in many ways, even if it is) they need to fucking grow up and get on with it.

If we lose and neither of them start, there will be lots of questions for Poch to answer.

Wow! 30% of voters are optimistically deluded in thinking we'll win this. I admire it though.

Maybe, but our attack so far this season has been about as sharp as rhino's arse! And no, there is no such thing as a lesser spotted sharp arsed rhino!!:cool:

Who else is excited for the Sky analysis of tomorrows game...

Watch Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur on Super Sunday - with guests Jose Mourinho and Sol Campbell - from 4pm on Sky Sports Premier League; kick-off 4.30pm
Not sure whether to be optimsitic of a rare win at the Emirates or nervous that an attacking Arsenal will be more cohesive and rip us to shreds.

Hopefully Son can get up against Luiz
