With Arsenal’s first clash of the season against Tottenham looming, we take a look at our head-to-head record against our north London rivals st home.

It makes pretty enjoyable reading.

In 24 Premier League matches at the Emirates, Arsenal have won 13, scoring 46 goals to Spurs’ 24. The visitors have only managed two wins at our gaff; the last one (2-3) was in 2010 and the one before that 1993!

The last two seasons have been 1-1 draws so the Gunners will be hoping for an improvement this term.

Overall, our head-to-head record against Spurs both home and away isn’t quite as rosy. We’ve drawn more times (20) than we’ve won (18). Although Spurs have only managed to beat us 10 times in 48 games.

Robert Pires is still Arsenals top goalscorer in the fixture, netting eight in total. Emmanuel Adebayor also scored eight but considering he played for both teams, that’s hardly a surprise.

Gareth Bale, Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie all scored five.

Let’s hope history repeats itself and we managed to get a good win at home to That Lot from down the road.
