Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has found the back of the net four times in four appearances against Tottenham, averaging a goal every 88 minutes. An impressive record in itself, however when measured against a number of Arsenal’s best scorers in the Premier League era, stats from daily fantasy football game Oulala.com show Aubameyang is better than anyone when it comes to facing the enemy!
Averaging a goal every 88 minutes, Aubameyang’s impressive record against Spurs eclipses a number of former Arsenal goalscoring greats including Robin van Persie, Thierry Henry, Emmanuel Adebayor and Robert Pires.
The north London derby’s overall top scorer in the Premier League era is Emmanuel Adebayor with eight goals, however having played for both clubs, the Togolese international is far from being labelled a legendary figure in either side of north London. Having also faced Tottenham for Real Madrid (twice), Manchester City (3 times) and Crystal Palace (once), Adebayor netted a total of 10 goals in 15 appearances against Spurs (eight for Arsenal & two for Madrid), boasting a record of a goal every 115 minutes.
Robert Pires’ record against Tottenham made the Frenchman somewhat of a legend at Arsenal. He scored more goals (5) than any other player (Arsenal or Spurs) in Premier League north London derbies at White Hart Lane. Additionally, Pires never lost a north London derby, although it took a 16 minutes cameo for Aston Villa against Tottenham to ruin that record. Pires’ eight goals in 13 appearances against Spurs came at an exceptional average of a goal every 113 minutes.
