These two sides are Premier League ever-presents and of the 50 league encounters that they have contested since 1992, the most recurring outcome is a draw (this has happened 42% of the time).

Arsenal have not beaten Tottenham in the Premier League in the last six attempts (two losses, four draws).

Both Arsenal and Tottenham have scored 20 Premier League goals in the first 11 matches this season, although Tottenham have the meaner defence conceding just seven in comparison to the Gunners' 16.

Arsenal have won their last 10 home matches in the Premier League (five from 2017/18 and five from 2016/17).

Since the start of last season, Arsenal have conceded 12 goals from the penalty spot, more than any other Premier League side.

Petr Cech has saved none of the 13 penalties he has faced with Arsenal in all competitions.

After his goal against Crystal Palace, Son Heung-min is now the all-time highest scoring Asian player in the Premier League.

Paulo Gazzaniga was the 15th goalkeeper to play for Tottenham in the Premier League and the fourth not to concede a goal on his debut after Ian Walker, Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm.

Harry Kane is responsible for 40% of Tottenham’s Premier League goals this season. Of the current top 10 Premier League goalscorers, Kane makes the biggest contribution in terms of goals as a percentage of the total amount scored by each of the represented clubs.

Kane averages 5.9 shots on goal per game in Premier League.

There is nothing to split these two sides in terms of average possession as they are both on 58.4%, while Arsenal just edge matters when it comes to passing accuracy 84.1% to 83.9%.

When it comes to efficiency in front of goal, Arsenal are slightly more ruthless as they require an average of 9.2 shots to score a goal while Tottenham require 9.6 in comparison.

October 2008 saw one of the most memorable North London derbies of recent times as the two sides played out a frenetic 4-4 draw at the Emirates. It looked as if Arsenal were to have local bragging rights but two late goals from Tottenham meant that it would be honours even this time around.
