Michael Oliver will referee the North London derby this weekend, and Arsenal will be hoping for a repeat of last year's result.
Tottenham also have another big game defeat under the referee's officiating to rue, the 3-2 loss at Anfield two seasons ago which spiked their momentum in the chase for fourth place that season.
Here's a look at Tottenham's overall record under Oliver in the Premier League:
- Chelsea 4-0 Tottenham
- Tottenham 2-0 Crystal Palace
- Tottenham 1-0 Hull City
- Arsenal 1-0 Tottenham
- Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham
- Manchester City 2-1 Tottenham
- Tottenham 1-2 Norwich City
- Norwich 0-2 Tottenham
That's a full record of three wins from eight, and four away defeats out of a possible five. Every time Spurs have faced a top six side away from home with Michael Oliver as referee, they have lost.
Arsenal also have bad memories with Oliver in charge, a 3-2 loss at home to West Brom in 2010, and a 2-1 defeat at The Emirates in 2011, a 3-2 away defeat to Swansea in 2012, and a 1-0 loss to Manchester United in 2013.
By far their worst performance under his refereeing came this year, away at Liverpool, when they were trounced 5-0 at Anfield.
Wins include a 3-0 win over West Brom, the 1-0 victory over Tottenham, while they also recorded a 1-1 draw away at Everton.
Oliver is a referee neither side will recall particularly fondly therefore, the last time each saw him in the Premier League, they lost by a combined 9-0, to Chelsea and Liverpool respectively.
Arsenal will however feel the more positive of the two, after all they have a North London derby win from last season under their belt with him in charge, and he also officiated their 3-0 Community Shield win over Manchester City a month ago.
Is it just superstition, random luck, or something deeper than that, that is hard to quantify, but it is Tottenham who will be looking to re-write history more so this weekend.
