Make or Break

Irrespective of Chelsea's game earlier in the evening, this is the big one for Tottenham.  Win here and we beat The Arse in the table for God knows* how many decades.  Surely we deserve that now?  Yeah, right...

MATCH FACTS

Head-to-head
  • Arsenal's only win in their last eight Premier League visits to White Hart Lane was 1-0 in March 2014 (D3, L4).
  • However, the Gunners have scored in 35 of the last 36 Premier League north London derbies - the exception being a 0-0 draw in February 2009.
  • A Spurs win will ensure they finish above Arsenal in the league for the first time since 1995*.
