In the last two Derbys at the Emirates Spurs failed to hold their leads, losing 5-2 on both occasions.
The following stats all suggest another high scoring match is in the offing:
13 of the last 14 league matches between Tottenham and Arsenal have gone over 2.5 goals.
Arsenal have failed to score in just one of their last 29 Barclays Premier League meetings with Tottenham.
Spurs have not kept four clean sheets in a row in the Barclays Premier League since January 2010.
There have been 124 goals scored in Premier League meetings between Tottenham and Arsenal; more than any other fixture.
There has been a Tottenham player sent off on each of their last two Premier League visits to The Emirates.
Olivier Giroud has scored in both of Arsenal’s league games so far this season and has bagged three goals in his last four Premier League appearances at the Emirates.
All 13 of Giroud’s Premier League goals have come in London, 11 at The Emirates, one at West Ham and one at Fulham.
Spur’s soon-to-depart Gareth Bale has scored more goals against Arsenal in the Premier League than any other opposition, five in 10 appearances and scored in both meetings between the teams last season.
Jermain Defoe has scored twice in 18 Premier League appearances against Arsenal. Only against Liverpool (two in 19) does Defoe have a worse record (10+ appearances).
Only Eden Hazard (10) has created more chances in the Premier League this season than Nacer Chadli (9).
