Arsenal will not want to entertain talk of a power shift in north London as they prepare to host Tottenham on Saturday.
The fact remains Mauricio Pochettino has never lost a North London Derby in the league and his men finished above their arch-rivals for the first time in 22 years last season.
Those stats make pretty grim reading for Arsene Wenger.
However, the Gunners boss does have some reasons to be optimistic. Spurs will be without Toby Alderweireld, whose injury is worse than first feared and the Belgian will now sit out until after Christmas.
Equally positive news for the hosts is that they've lost just twice at home to Tottenham in the last 24 years.
The Lilywhites have to look back to 20 November 2010 for their last victory on enemy territory, when both sides were fielding very different line-ups. Younes Kaboul's 85th-minute header on that day - after the visitors fought back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 - has gone down in folklore.
Fabianski struggled to nail down a regular place at Arsenal and subsequently moved to Swansea.
Most recently with Manchester City, the former French international is currently a free agent.
The centre-back is the only player who started that day who is still at the club.
The Frenchman only ever made 23 appearances for Arsenal before leaving for Corsican outfit Bastia.
Another full-back let go by Pep Guardiola at City, he's now in his first year of a three-year contract with Istanbul Başakşehir.
The midfielder has been all the way to Barcelona and over to Chelsea, where he's won two Premier League titles.
The 30-year-old is at Antalyaspor. Last season, he was threatened with suspension while on loan at Sevilla after becoming embroiled in a bizarre 'drip-doctors' doping scandal.
It was the emergence of Jack Wilshere that really spelled the end for Denilson at Arsenal and he headed back to his native Brazil.
Had it not been for his horrible luck with injuries, Song's stint at the Emirates might have worked out differently. He returned to the Premier League with West Ham but last year joined Russian side Rubin Kazan.
The 36-year-old now plays for Kazakhstan team Kairat having initially enjoyed success back in Russia with Zenit.
Spells at Crystal Palace and Cardiff didn't really work out; Chamakh and his famous barnet are currently a free agent.
Erratic but loveable as ever, the Brazilian can be found just up the road at Watford.
The Scot never really impressed at White Hart Lane and is now with Aston Villa.
If you don't know what became of him, it's probably worth looking it up.
The defender is a team-mate of Gomes' at Watford.
Retired. It was a strange day when he walked out at the Emirates wearing a Tottenham shirt.
Contrary to reports, he hasn't become a porn star and plays for Ligue 1 club Metz. The left-back was recently sent off for a tackle on Kylian Mbappe.
Since making a return for Everton, the winger has been in and out of the Toffees' team this season.
Now working as pundit on Match of the Day and BT Sport.
Rafael Van der Vaart
Undoubtedly the biggest name at FC Midtjylland, 'Rafa' was a half-time guest during Spurs' recent win over Real Madrid.
Arguably the best midfielder in the world right now, having won three Champions Leagues with Real.
The striker plays for Ararat Moscow, a team only formed in 2017.
It's fair to say both sides have come a long way since then.
Who is the bigger north London club right now? Have your say in the comments.
