Spurs slipped 1-0 at home to relegation candidates Newcastle as their dreadful run continues, while Arsenal were thumped 3-1 by Liverpool at Anfield.

With so much at stake, expect a fiery derby from a match that historically sees 4.3 cards shown per game.

In 54 North London derbies, 219 yellow cards have been shown, to go with 13 reds.

The total tally of 232 cards is just ONE behind the 233 shown in Merseyside derbies between Liverpool and Everton.

With Arsenal vs Spurs averaging 4.3 cards per match over the past 27 years, they set to take the lead in the dirty derby stakes.

In terms of cards shown per game – instead of total cards – Newcastle vs Sunderland ranks as the ugliest clash, at five.

Meanwhile, Arsenal could start Nicolas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette in the North London derby.

Unai Emery has been slated by fans and pundits, including Ian Wright, alike for not starting his star trio together – with Lacazette on the bench for Liverpool defeat.
