Arsenal has not lost at home to Tottenham in the Premier League since 2010, they will be looking to maintain that record when both sides meet at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Having said that, it's not going to be an easy game for the Gunners as they have not won consecutive league games against Spurs since the 2013/14 season. Recall that Arsenal won the last Premier League fixture 2-1.

Both sides have met 58 times in the Premier League. In that time the Gunners won 21, drew 23, and lost 14 times. Both sides will surely want to improve on their number of wins.
