It’s official, the teams have been announced for the first North London Derby of the season… is anyone else terrified?
Although form does tend to go out the window when it comes to derby clashes, Spurs are the superior team at the moment and most people are backing them to leave the Emirates with three points.
As the official timekeeper and watch partner of the Premier League, TAG Heuer will be at the heart of the action this weekend. Arsenal fans have the chance to win tickets to watch the Gunners live by taking the Premier League Pressure Test. Race against the clock to answer ten Premier League questions in the fastest possible time.
Since we faced each other for the first time in November 1896, Arsenal have won 80 while Spurs have won 62. However, in recent years, it’s got increasingly difficult to beat our bitter rivals and Mauricio Pochettino is yet to be defeated by Arsene Wenger in the Premier League since leaving Southampton in 2014.
Last season, Arsenal drew 1-1 with Spurs at the Emirates and most people have predicted a similar outcome this time. However, when we traveled to White Hart Lane, we lost 2-0 and left with our tails between our legs.
It’s got to something when the best outcome we’re hoping for is a draw.
Several of Poch’s team have made miraculous recoveries considering many, including Harry Kane, were ruled out of their international clashes with injuries. Funny that.
Let’s hope we can put some pressure the top four with a win.
Here are how the teams line up:
