Arsenal versus Tottenham is one of the longest running and most hotly contested rivalries in all of English football.

So, whenever the two north London sides are pitted against each other in any way, shape or form you know there is going to be a lot on the line.

And that was the case recently when Arsenal's Hector Bellerin and Spurs' Dele Alli took on Copa 90 presenter/wannabe goalkeeper Vuj in a five shot challenge. Scroll down to see who won the bragging rights (until at least November 6 when the two teams clash in the Premier League).

The challenge - explained in the full video below - saw the two Premier League stars each take five shots. They were categorised as follows:

1 x left foot shot from outside the box
1 x right foot shot from outside the box
1 x touch and hit from outside the box
1 x one-on-one
1 x penalty

You'd think that, given they are used to going up against Premier League calibre shot-stoppers, neither Bellerin or Alli would have trouble bagging five out of five and completely the full house.

However, thanks to some over-confidence and a few misplaced shots, neither player managed that and, in fact, there was one clear winner by the end of the competition...

As you can see, Bellerin racked up a respectable five points but only actually managed to convert his penalty. It was still three points more than his Gunners teammate Mesut Ozil achieved recently.

The right-back's Spurs rival, blew him out the water, however, with an impressive eight point haul that included one scuffed volley, a casual penalty and a cheeky one-on-one attempt.

Given that it was an attacking midfielder versus a defender, Gunners fans might argue the challenge was weighted a little too heavily in Tottenham's favour this time around.

However, they can regain some of the bragging rights by pointing to Copa 90's overall leaderboard for the five-shot challenge as Santi Cazorla also managed to pick up eight points during his attempt earlier this year.

Build up

Ultimately, the above video won't be the be all and end all in the Arsenal-Spurs rivalry - the real drama will begin next month when the two sides meet for the first time this season in the Premier League.

With just one point separating them after the opening nine games of the campaign, it is sure to be a heated affair at the Emirates.

Who gets the better of each other between Bellerin and Alli on that occasion could play a big part in which team ends the day the happier.
