When you’re attempting to stay in the title race, the added pressure of facing your rivals at home is not really what you want or need, but that’s exactly what Tottenham have on Sunday when they host Arsenal.
A third London derby in just over a week could be a huge strain on Mauricio Pochettino and his team, but the evidence suggests they have the tools to cope.
Pochettino is yet to lose a league game to Arsenal in five meetings, the best unbeaten start by a Spurs boss in in this history of matches between the two sides.
His players dominate the recent Pressure Index form table, with Son Heung-Min top, partly thank to three goals and an assist in his last two Premier League games at White Hart Lane.
Meanwhile, Harry Kane is already Tottenham’s joint-top scorer in Premier League London derbies and has hit ten goals in his last six league games at home.
The Goal Pressure Index uses more than 750,000 data points as well as factors including league position, point in the season and the opposition to calculate a rating out of 100 for every Premier League player every week.
