Tottenham vs Arsenal by Rahul

Games between Tottenham and Arsenal have been fiesty encounters in general, but that takes another step forward today as both are battling for the title to come back to their respective clubs after a long wait, and this will be expected to get hot especially with the game kicking off early. The cards have been fiesta between the sides with the card count being as follows in the last few games 1, 8, 9 & 8.


Arsenal already start out with troubles as Koscielny being suspended, meaning the vicious Gabriel will start in his place, and is always up for a card in such encounters already grabbing 3 yellow cards & 1 red from just 11 league starts. Arsenal against tougher opposition seems to leak cards with 5 against Leicester, 1 yellow/1 red against Chelsea, 3 against Tottenham,


Tottenham are no saints when it comes to the bookings with 56 yellow cards in 28 games so far, which is an average of 2 per game. Coming into the big derby games; they had 4 against Chelsea, 3 against West Ham while 2 against arsenal in the reverse fixture. Tottenham have some culprits in the disciplinary table with Dier (8 yellows), Lamela (6 yellows), Ali (6 yellows), Rose (5 yellows) and Walker (5 yellows).


Michael Oliver the referee for today, is averaging around 4 cards per game, but when it comes to key fiesty encounters, look at his stats:


Liverpool-Man City : 10 yellows


Tottenham-Chelsea : 6 yellows


Arsenal-Liverpool : 5 yellows


Southampton-Everton : 6 yellows


Stoke-West Brom: 5 yellows, 2 reds


Arsenal-Chelsea : 7 yellows


Oliver even took charge of the derby game last season where he gave 9 yellow cards to the teams.
