North London derby: Spurs vs Arsenal

Wednesday, 20th April 2011 9:02pm
Tottenham Hotspurs and Arsenal are meeting in a North London derby that could make or break their seasons.

This is the match that was postponed for the Gunners to play in the Carling Cup final which they lost to Birmingham.

If the Gunners win this match then they will reduce the gap between themselves and leaders Manchester United to four points with just five matches left.

One of the five remaining matches for Arsenal is against Manchester United.

A loss for Arsenal and they could end in third place if Chelsea beat Birmingham in a fixture being played at the same time.

A draw will also see Arsenal slip to third should Chelsea win.

For Spurs trying to get Champions League football next season, a win will see them equal on points with fourth placed Manchester City. Poor goal difference will keep them in fifth place.

A loss for Spurs and the poor goal difference could mean that Champions League will not be at White Hart Lane next season.

Interestingly the game in hand for Spurs is against Manchester City which is scheduled to be played next month.

So this derby in no ordinary derby this time and in the first fixture Spurs made a stunning comeback to beat Arsenal 3-2 at the Emirates.

So here are some of the stats for the two teams so far this season in the league:
