Tottenham through the Arsene Wenger years [Infographic]

| 15.11.2012

Arsenal and Tottenham renew rivalries on Saturday lunchtime in a fixture that never fails to entertain.

There’s no love lost between the two sets of supporters and competition on the pitch and in the dugouts is equally as fierce.

Spurs head into the first north London derby of the season one point above their neighbours and are 13/5 to leave the Emirates Stadium with all three points.

While Tottenham may currently enjoy a slight advantage over Arsenal in the Premier League table, the Gunners have an incredible record of finishing above their old adversaries every season since Arsene Wenger arrived in English football in 1996.

In fact, you have to go back to the 1994/95 campaign to find the last time Spurs finished ahead of Arsenal.

Wenger celebrated 16 years in charge of Arsenal in September and has helped the club to win trophies as well as nurtured some of the best players in the word, with the likes of Cesc Fabregas owing a huge debt of gratitude to the Frenchman.

In comparison, Spurs have chopped and changed their manager and local bragging rights have tended to go to the Gunners.

Ahead of Saturday’s game, here we look at the dominance Arsenal have enjoyed over Tottenham under Wenger as well as the managers who have been and gone from White Hart Lane during the Frenchman’s tenure.
