Arsenal trail Tottenham Hotspur by three points ahead of Saturday’s north London derby at White Hart Lane.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side lost for the first time in seven Premier League games on Wednesday night after a 1-0 defeat by West Ham United at Upton Park.

Arsene Wenger’s players were unable to capitalise on Tottenham’s setback after the Gunners suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat by Swansea City at the Emirates Stadium.

Tottenham have been praised for their outstanding performances over the course of the 2015/16 season.

And Oulala’s infographic above highlights how the Tottenham players have outperformed their Arsenal rivals in this season’s Premier League campaign.

Only Gabriel Paulista, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez were good enough to secure a place in Oulala’s combined XI ahead of the Sunday’s derby clash.

However, with the pressure of a derby and the title race on both sides, will Tottenham be able to maintain their high standards?
