Arsenal vs Tottenham : Fantasy Football Ownership

The North London Derby is one to look forward to not just for Arsenal/Spurs supporters but for the neutral fans also.

Why? GOALS!  This game has a recent history of bringing goals to the table and today should hopefully be no exception.

The previous six meetings have yielded a total of 31 goals – including 5-2 wins for Arsenal in the previous two matches at the Emirates.

From a fantasy football perspective there will be plenty of interest in this game also with both teams featuring at least 3 players with double digit ownership.

Can Metesacker keep Soldado at bay??




  • The previous six meetings have yielded a total of 31 goals – including 5-2 wins for Arsenal in the previous two matches at the Emirates.
  • Spurs’ 3-2 win at the Emirates in November 2010 is their only victory away to Arsenal since the inaugural Premier League season in 1992-93.


  • The Gunners have won just one of their last four home league games (W1, D2, L1), yet have won their last six top-flight matches on the road.
  • All 13 of Olivier Giroud’s Premier League goals have been scored in London, with 11 netted at the Emirates.
  • Victory at Fulham last weekend gave Arsenal their 100th London derby win in the Premier League.
  • The Gunners have not lost their opening two home league games since 1949-50, when they were defeated by Burnley and Chelsea at Highbury.

Tottenham Hotspur

  • Roberto Soldado has scored 12 goals in his last 10 league appearances.
  • If the Spaniard scores on Sunday he will become only the second player to score in their first three Premier League appearances for Spurs, following in the footsteps of Jermain Defoe.
  • Spurs have attempted 39 shots in this season’s Premier League but have yet to score from open play.
  • They have started the season with back-to-back clean sheets for the first time since 2005-06, when they recorded shut-outs in their opening three matches.
