It’s North London Derby weekend! As bitter rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur go head to head for the 201st time, we’ve put together a North London Derby Quiz.
The pair meet having enjoyed wildly contrasting fortunes so far this season, with Jose Mourino’s Tottenham side sitting proudly atop the Premier League table while Arsenal are on a grim run of form that has left them languishing down in the bottom half. A win for Tottenham will surely turn even the most ardent of doubters into believers that Spurs could truly be title challengers at least this season. Meanwhile, there have already been murmurings about the future of Mikel Arteta and a defeat in this encounter would intensify the pressure on the Spaniard with The Gunners gradually moving closer to the relegation zone than the top four.
It should be a fascinating encounter and if you fancy making it even more exciting, then why not have a go in our £10,000 Match Predictor pool for the game. We can’t wait!
