The two sides from north London lock horns at the Emirates on Sunday with both Arsenal and Tottenham hoping to move up the table and challenge for the European places.

Spurs are seven points above their rivals, hoping to finish above them for the sixth successive season. Both sides recorded good wins in their Europa League last-16 ties, beating Olympiacos and Dinamo Zagreb respectively.


Arsenal form

Arsenal finished eighth last season, their lowest ever finish in the Premier League. They might set a new low just a season after; with the club languishing in 10th. Mikel Arteta’s side were in deep trouble at Christmas with the club close to the bottom three.

The Gunners have improved since then with youngsters such as Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith-Rowe making the side more athletic, mobile and fluid. Arsenal have been a strange side this season with matches seemingly going well before a defensive clanger or a red card.

They dominated Burnley last weekend but were unable to add to their early lead, and conspired to hand the hosts a goal and undo all of the good work.

Arsenal have taken 24 points from their last 13 games, beating Chelsea and drawing with Manchester United.

Their form is ranked fifth in the league over those run of games, only separated on goal difference with Manchester United.


Tottenham form

Just under three weeks ago, after their 2-1 defeat to West Ham, Spurs were in a rut. Jose Mourinho’s side were uninspiring, dull and not performing to their capabilities. They had taken just 12 points from their last 13 games.

However, that was somewhat changed with the introduction of Gareth Bale, who has lessened the load on Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min and given the side an added freshness.

He came on at half time against West Ham to assist a goal in a 2-1 defeat but he also looked more like the old Bale. The Welshman has scored six goals and assisted three times in his last seven appearances.

Tottenham have won their last five in all competitions, with wins in the Premier League against Fulham, Burnley and Crystal Palace. Spurs have scored nine goals in their last three league games.Β  They are still seventh in the Premier League and are five points off the top four with a game in hand.

Harry Kane will be looking to add to his tally against Arsenal, the Spurs striker has scored 11 in 12 league games against Arsenal.

Head-to-head

Arsenal are winless in their last five meetings with Tottenham in all competitions (D2, L3). They’ve never gone six without a win against their neighbours before. Spurs are looking to win three consecutive games against Arsenal for the first time since October 1974. A league double over the Gunners would be their first since 1992-93.

Arsenal have lost just two of their last 35 home league games against Spurs (W19, D14) suffering defeats in 1993 and 2010.
