History of the Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur fixture

Arsenal prepare to entertain Tottenham Hotspur at Highbury at lunchtime on Saturday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Gunners are clearly on top, winning 50.70% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Highbury was less than a year ago, in April 2005, the Gunners carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Premiership match.
