We go looking for our first league double over Tottenham Hotspur since 2013/14 on Sunday, when we head across north London for our second derby day of the campaign.
That victory back in March 2014 thanks to an early Thomas Rosicky strike was the last time we triumphed at the home of our neighbours, as we look to get our first win at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at the fourth attempt.
As usual, we’ll have to be wary of Harry Kane who has scored in all but one of his eight Premier League home games against us as he looks for the one goal he needs to equal Jimmy Greaves’ club-record tally of 266.
Spurs started the season in fine fashion, winning five and drawing two of their opening seven league games to sit third before their visit to the Emirates Stadium in October. However, our 3-1 defeat was the first of four in their next seven, and they also suffered an early exit in the League Cup to Nottingham Forest.
They did though top their Champions League group ahead of Eintracht Frankfurt, Sporting Lisbon and Marseille, picking up 11 points from their six matches to set up a last-16 tie with AC Milan in February.
Following the World Cup break, they came from two goals behind to draw at Brentford, but then lost to Aston Villa on New Year’s Day. A 4-0 win at Crystal Palace in their last league outing leaves them in fourth place and 11 points behind ourselves going into this round of fixtures, while FA Cup progress came via a slender win over League One Portsmouth last weekend.
