H2H: Arsenal v Tottenham

Tottenham head to Arsenal this weekend for the North London derby in a game, which looks tricky for the away side.

Arsenal have some momentum heading into this Premier League clash despite the fact they lost in the League Cup during the week while Spurs won.

In terms of the head-to-head stats, there are some good comparisons in a number of key areas.

Arsenal are ahead in terms of goals, which suggests the Gunners are in slightly better form in front of goal.

They have pace and players who can score all over the pitch but Tottenham’s conversion rate against the number of attempts they’ve had has been impressive this season.

There’s nothing to choose between the defence of each side with Arsenal’s injury problems at the back something that Spurs will be looking to take advantage of.

Mauricio Pochettino will be pleased to see that his team have matched one of their direct rivals defensively considering that was a problem area for the team last season.

Arsenal appear to be reading the game better which is an interesting stat considering the pressure Arsene Wenger was under to sign a holding midfielder during the summer transfer window.

Finally, it shouldn’t be a major surprise to see Arsenal ahead in terms of the number of accurate passes they have played this season. They like to keep the ball and build pressure, which is something Spurs need to be wary of.
