NICKNAME: The North London Derby
HISTORICAL RECORD: 168 matches: Arsenal - 71W, Spurs - 51W, 46 draws
COMPLEX SAYS: The rivalry began in 1913, when Woolwich Arsenal relocated to Highbury—just four miles from White Hart Lane—and grew further in 1919 when, owing to their influence at the FA, the Gunners gained a place in the top division at Tottenham’s expense. With an improved Spurs threatening for a top-four spot, we look set for an on-pitch feast over the next few years.
MEMORABLE MATCH: April 14, 1991, FA Cup semi-final, Spurs 3 -1 Arsenal. Gazza's remarkable free kick stands out here; Tottenham went on to win the cup final, but Arsenal took the league.
