Arsenal are set to make the tough trip to rivals Tottenham on Sunday afternoon and will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Mikel Arteta's side head into the game off the back of a thumping 5-0 win at home to fellow Londoners Chelsea on Tuesday. This victory put them four points clear at the top of the league, but this has since been cut to one by Manchester City.

The Gunners will be keen to get a good result away to their rivals at the weekend and their are four key talking points ahead of the blockbuster clash.

Tottenham has been a notoriously tough place to go for Arsenal over the past years and this will no doubt be the case again on Sunday.

The Gunners secured a 2-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last season, their first victory away to their rivals since 2014, and will be hoping to recreate this. However, Arsenal have not won back to back matches away to Spurs since 1988.

Despite this, Tottenham have slipped up multiple times at home this season though so Arsenal should definitely fancy their chances of grabbing a win on Sunday.
