Arsenal host Tottenham on Sunday at the Emirates, with the hopes of breaking their unbeaten Premier League game streak. Even though Arsenal historically have the upper hand,although historically Arsenal have the upper-hand you can never underestimate either regardless of their form when these two clash. So let’s have a look at the last five meetings between the two teams.
Arsenal 1-1 Tottenham 28th September 2014, Emirates Stadium
Goals: Chadli (56″) Oxlade Chamberlain (74″) MOTM: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Arsenal hosted Tottenham at the Emirates in a game dominated by the Gunners, before captain Mikel Arteta had to come off injured after 28 minutes, replaced by Mathieu Flamini. Flamini subsequently lost the ball in a bad area leading to Nacer Chadli’s goal before the hour mark. Arsenal pushed for an equaliser and it was Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who scored in the 74th to give Arsenal a point, a crucial point.
Tottenham-Arsenal: 2-1, 7th February 2015, White Hart Lane
Goals: Özil (11″), Kane (56″ 83″) MOTM: Harry Kane
A quick goal from Mesut Özil, deflecting off Giroud’s shot set the Gunners right in the right direction but they slowly slowed down and allowed Tottenham to get back into the game. In form Tottenham striker, Harry Kane scored a brace to push Spurs ahead against an Arsenal side which sorely missed Alexis Sanchez. A great win for Spurs at the Lane.
Tottenham-Arsenal: 1-2, 23th September, White Hart Lane, League Cup 3rd round
Goals: Chambers (OG, 56″) Flamini (27″ 79″) MOTM: Mathieu Flamini
It’s fair to say Mathieu Flamini made the most of his first start of the 2015/16 season, scoring the first goal and then scoring an absolute screamer, a wonderful volley, in a game that will only be remembered for that outstanding moment. A great night for the Gunners, who knocked Spurs out of the Cup.
Arsenal-Tottenham: 1-1, 8th November 2015, Emirates Stadium
Goals: Kane (32″) Gibbs (78″) MOTM: Hugo Lloris
In another tight North London Derby, Kane made the most out of a mistake from Koscielny to get through on goal and score past Cech. Arsenal then pushed for an equaliser, but were denied by the bar, Lloris and Giroud’s inaccuracy. Arsenal’s domination finally paid off when Gibbs scored from a sublime cross from the assist master, Mesut Özil, but Arsenal couldn’t snatch the win. Dele Alli was MOTM with a whopping 52% pass accuracy…
Tottenham-Arsenal: 2-2, 5th March 2016, White Hart Lane
Goals: Ramsey (39″) Alderweireld (57″) Kane (61″) Alexis (72″) MOTM: Ospina
After losing to Barcelona, a below-strength Manchester United and Swansea, Arsenal really needed to get back on track to survive in the title race. Arsene Wenger gave Elneny his first Premier League start, with Ramsey on the right. Arsenal suffered for most of the first-half, but took the lead with Aaron Ramsey’s sublime backheel and looked as though they could hold out for a win. The game turned, however, when Coquelin got his second yellow for a reckless challenge on Kane and Tottenham scored two quick goals to take the lead, although a man down, Arsenal still managed to equalise, with Alexis scoring past Lloris.A hard fought draw, for an Arsenal side very low on confidence.
