Date published: Friday 17th November 2017 7:37

Forget a combined North London Derby XI for now, and let’s have some lovely top fives. The following ranks Arsenal and Tottenham players by their statistics in the Premier League this season. Only players with regular appearances are included to stop it being silly:

 

Minutes per goal
1. Harry Kane (Tottenham) – 108.9 mins
2. Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal) – 125.2 mins
3. Danny Welbeck (Arsenal) – 154.7 mins
4. Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) – 176.0 mins
5. Heung-Min Son (Tottenham) 251.0 mins

Arsenal have three of the four players with an average better than a goal every 200 minutes, but Kane’s the winner.

 

Mins per shot on target
1. Harry Kane (Tottenham) – 39.6 mins
2. Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) – 54.4 mins
3. Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) – 58.7 mins
4. Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal) – 58.8 mins
5. Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal) – 62.6 mins

We’re not saying ‘The Harry Kane team’, but ‘The Harry Kane forward line’?

 

Mins per chance created
1. Mesut Ozil (Arsenal) – 21.9 mins
2. Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) – 27.2 mins
3. Ben Davies (Tottenham) – 32.7 mins
4. Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) – 25.2 mins
5. Christian Eriksen (Tottenham) – 38.7 mins

Arsenal’s attack is just fine. It’s just the defence that’s a clusterf*ck.

 

Mins per dribble completed
1. Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) – 34.0 mins
2. Heung-Min Son (Tottenham) – 55.8 mins
3. Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal) – 58.8 mins
4. Harry Kane (Tottenham) – 62.2 mins
5. Moussa Sissoko (Tottenham) – 63.4 mins

No surprise that Sanchez is the comfortable leader. But hey there Moussa…

 

Passes per 90 mins played
1. Granit Xhaka (Arsenal) – 85.7
2. Nacho Monreal (Arsenal) – 72.0
3. Toby Alderweireld (Tottenham) – 69.2
4. Eric Dier (Tottenham) – 68.1
5. Shkodran Mustafi (Arsenal) – 68.0

Xhaka can do short passing, but have a look at his absence from the tackling section.

 

Touches per 90 mins played
1. Granit Xhaka (Arsenal) – 101.7
2. Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham) – 90.9
3. Kieran Trippier (Tottenham) – 89.1
4. Nacho Monreal (Arsenal) – 87.3
5. Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal) – 83.7

Arsenal move possession between central defence and central midfield. Tottenham move it out to the full-backs.

1. Shkodran Mustafi (Arsenal) – 37.5 mins
2. Nacho Monreal (Arsenal) – 38.1 mins
3. Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal) – 42.4 mins
4. Jan Verthongen (Tottenham) – 43.0 mins
