Arsenal and Tottenham have a rich history of being involved in exciting clashes. This decade alone, football fans have been treated to 1-4, 2-3, 3-3, 5-2, 5-2, 2-2 and 4-2 scorelines.
It would be easy to dismiss Jamie Redknapp's praise of the north London derby but he's got a point hasn't he? This decade we've had a 1-4, 2-3, 3-3, 5-2, 5-2, 2-2, 4-2, now a game that's level at 2-2. Other rivalries may have more grandeur, but often deliver half baked bores.
