Tottenham are unbeaten in their last eight Premier League home games against Arsenal (W6 D2). They’ve won their last three at home against them but have never won four in a row in their league history.

Following their 3-1 win at the Emirates in October, Arsenal are looking to complete their first league double over Tottenham since 2013-14, which was also their last league victory away against Spurs.

Tottenham have won 13 Premier League penalties against Arsenal, scoring 12 of them. Harry Kane has scored seven of these penalties, with no player scoring more from the spot against a single side in the competition’s history.

Tottenham scored first for the first time in eight Premier League matches in their 4-0 win against Crystal Palace last time out. They’ve won 16 of their last 18 Premier League games when opening the scoring (D2) since a 3-2 loss against Southampton last February.

Arsenal have won all six of their Premier League London derby matches this season, keeping a clean sheet in all three away games. They’ve not won seven league London derbies in a row since the 2007-08 campaign, which included home and away wins against Spurs.

Tottenham have scored more second half goals than any other Premier League side this season (27), with these also accounting for a league-high 73% of their total (27/37). Meanwhile, only Newcastle (82%) have conceded a higher share of their Premier League goals after half-time this season than Arsenal (71% – 10/14).

Since the start of last season, no player has been directly involved in more London derby goals in the Premier League than Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka (11 – 4 goals, 7 assists). Saka also created the most chances in the Gunners’ 3-1 victory over Spurs earlier this season (5).
