The stunning Aubameyang stat that could decide North London derby

Form and history make this latest iteration of the North London derby a tough one to predict and it could come down to one man to make the difference.

While Tottenham boast Harry Kane, a man who has scored in six of his last seven Premier League clashes against Arsenal, the Gunners have a ruthless Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang up their sleeve.

Current joint-top scorer in the competition, the 29 year old attacker has remarkably scored with each of his last eight shots on target in the Premier League with West Ham’s Lukasz Fabianski the last keeper to make a save against him back in August.

While he has completely missed one or two sitters during that span, Aubameyang is as deadly as they come in front of goal with his sheer pace allowing him to get in perfect positions for unstoppable finishes and he could very easily be the player to decide what promises to be an unpredictable encounter.

On paper, Arsenal can be considered slight favourites on home soil with Spurs winning just one of the their past 25 away Premier League matches against the Gunners - who have in turned scored in 22 straight North London derbies played at home.

Arsenal have however won just one of their last eight Premier League clashes against Tottenham with Spurs strong away form this season seeing them win seven of their eight games played on the road.

Just three points separate the two sides on the table and though the Gunners sit two places behind Tottenham in fifth, they are unbeaten in their past 11 Premier League matches.

Though enjoying a solid start to life at the Emirates, Unai Emery must defy a trend that's seen just two of the past nine Arsenal managers win their first North London derbies.

As these stats suggest, this derby will genuinely be on a knife's edge and all it could take is a shot on target from Aubameyang to settle it.
