Arsenal’s record in recent North London derbies is actually very impressive

The biggest game of the weekend will undoubtedly be Arsenal versus Spurs in the North London derby at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

For the Gooners, this is more than simply a game for North London bragging rights; it may keep Arsenal’s title hopes alive. As it stands, our Gunners witt 77 points are a point ahead of Manchester City (who’ve played a game less), so they can’t afford to drop points; instead, they must keep winning and hope that the Cityzens drop points.

Spurs, for their part, are hoping to qualify for Champions League football, which could be enough motivation for them to go for a win on Sunday. However, an unexpected revelation has arisen that should provide our Gunners with much-needed motivation to paint North London red this weekend.

Our friend Dan keeps saying that the Gunners have only won one of their last ten visits to the Toilet Bowl, but there is also a fact that Arsenal have won four and lost just one of the last six North London derbies in the Premier League.

This fact shows that our Arsenal has always found a method to avoid defeat to our bitter rivals and . So, what could make it difficult for them to do so when it counts this weekend?

As leaky as Spurs have been, keeping only one clean sheet in 13 games and conceding four goals to Newcastle last time out, Arsenal should pick up where they left off in the 5-0 win against Chelsea; we need them to hammer Spurs for a comfortable win this Sunday.

    1. And your missing the point
      We can’t afford to avoid defeat
      Any other year a draw at Lane is a good result but we have to go there and win
      It’s a different mentality

      1. The Spuds knows all they need to do is stop us from scoring.
        But that is far from their playing style, which is open and to attack

  1. A difference is that today we MUST win.
    Like Dan said, other times drawing at Spurs would be acceptable but this time we must have a “Must Win” mentality.

  2. This is a must win game for us, but it’s also a tricky game for the Spuds.
    One thing will be on their mind, should they play us in their normal style, high press and open or sit back in low block and attack us on the counter.

    The latter could invite pressure on themselves both on the pitch and off the pitch in the stand, surely they must have look back at the game with us against Villa a thousand times

    Not many teams stop us from scoring and if Spuds manage to do that today, they will be as happy as a lark.

      I think they’re going to use the high press and try to keep us in our own half. Just like Villa did. Jus sayin

      1. Am in agreement one hundred percent, but the game could hinges on who plays at left back for us.

  3. We have ALL the weapons to hurt them real bad. it’s a matter of the scoreline margin for me, we might as well witness another neighbour massacre, such as Chelsea,Westham,Palace etc, forget about the venue.
