History of the Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur fixture

Arsenal prepare to entertain Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium at lunchtime on Saturday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Gunners are clearly on top, having won 38 and lost only 18 of the 74 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Emirates Stadium was less than a year ago, in January 2007, with Arsenal running out comfortable 3-1 winners in an League Cup match.
