This weekend sees some thumper derbies take place across Europe but this one is arguably the biggest. It’s safe to say that Arsenal and Spurs fans aren’t very fond of each other and given the fact that the contests between the two often end up as goalfests, we simply can’t wait for Saturday afternoon. After a frantic discussion in the office today about the greatest clashes in recent memory, we’ve taken the liberty of compiling an old Top 5 highlights reel.
Arsenal 2-3 Tottenham 10/11
Spurs fans will really appreciate this editing. After going two nil down, the music changes, the mood changes and the rest is history.
Arsenal 4-4 Tottenham 08/09
Although it finished as a draw, when you look back over it, this was more like a loss for the Gunners.
Arsenal 2-2 Tottenham 03/04
This one also finished all square but this vine says it all really.
Here are the highlights:
Tottenham 2-1 Arsenal 09/10
We couldn’t quite find the full highlights for this one but had to include it for the sake of this Danny Rose strike. What an absolute stonker. Not as highscoring as some of the others on this list but this game was still a cracker. Bale scored the second for Spurs and despite a late comeback courtesy of Lord Bendtner, it finished 2-1.
Tottenham 4-5 Arsenal 04/05
This is our all time favourite. Sorry Tottenham fans but Arsenal a la the early 00’s were just too good not to drool over. Bergkamp, Henry, Vieira, Pires… what a team.
