Tottenham Hotspur vs Arsenal head-to-head
The two teams have met 199 times since 1909 and Arsenal have come out on top with 82 times while Spurs have got the better of their rivals on 64 occasions. The two teams have shared the spoils 53 times.
Arsenal have been the dominant force overall however, this fixture has been evenly matched over the past five years.
In their last 10 Premier League meetings, Spurs have emerged victorious three times while Arsenal have beaten their local rivals two times. The remaining fixtures have all ended in draws, which was also the result when the two sides met in September, finishing 2-2.
Players to watch out for
Harry Kane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will be the key men for their respective sides on Sunday.
Harry Kane has had a troublesome season and has missed nine Premier League games through injury. The England skipper has scored only twice in his last six Premier League outings and will be keen to overturn his form and guide Spurs to a Europa League spot.
But Kane has a terrific record in the North London Derby. The Spurs talisman has scored 10 goals in 10 games against the Gunners and will be itching to add to that tally on Sunday.
Despite his team's struggles, Arsenal captain Aubameyang has delivered consistently for his side and has scored 20 goals in the Premier League this season, just two fewer than top-scorer Jamie Vardy.
The Gabonese international has played in three North London derbies and has struck thrice and will once again be the Gunners' go-to man against their cross-town rivals.
