Three reasons why Tottenham could struggle at Arsenal

History doesn’t bode well for Spurs

The Premier League returns this weekend and in some style too.

Arsenal host Tottenham Hotspur in the first North London derby of the season at 12.30 on Saturday.

Spurs have clearly been the better side over the last couple of seasons.

But the Coral News Team have picked out a few reasons why Mauricio Pochettino’s men could be in trouble versus Arsene Wenger’s Gunners…

Ropey record at the Emirates

Tottenham have been to the Emirates 11 times in the Premier League, but have managed to conjure just one victory.

That came way back in 2010, when Gareth Bale inspired a 3-2 success.

They’ve claimed five draws since 2006, but whichever way you look at it, one win in 11 is not good enough.

Top-six struggles

Tottenham’s struggles at Arsenal may not be specifically consigned to the Emirates.

While Jose Mourinho and Manchester United’s top-six pattern is well documented, Spurs’ recent run is actually rather similar.

Tottenham have failed to win all of their last eight league visits to the other members of the so-called big six.

It’s a terrible record, and they‘ll never make that final step up to title winners unless they change that around.

Arsenal at home

Whisper it quietly, but Arsenal are actually very good at home.

Over the last 90 home games in the Premier League, the Gunners have lost only eight times.

That record is easily the best in the entire division.

Over the same period Chelsea and Manchester City have been defeated 10 times, Liverpool 12, Manchester United have lost 15 times while Spurs have lost twice as many games at 16.
