There are a number of top London teams in the Premier League, with the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, and West Ham all competing in the Premier League. But the stats show that we are the dominant force in the capital, with our results in London derbies seeing us top of our own mini league table.
Having been in the Premier League since its conception, we have competed in 217 London derbies. We have an excellent win rate in those games too, with 114 wins, 57 draws, and 46 losses.
Chelsea are snapping at our heals with relatively similar numbers, although with three less wins they have some catching up to do.
Despite being in third place, Tottenham are unsurprisingly some way behind our points tally – as well as having a massively negative goal difference.

With our clash against Tottenham today looming ever closer, these stats make for hugely positive reading. Hopefully we can extend our lead at the top of the derby table, and if Manchester City fail to beat Aston Villa (with the game poised at 0-0 at the time of writing), we could even move to the top of the Premier League table.
