It’s not been a good week for Arsenal fans, who saw their side draw Bayern Munich in the Champions League Round of 16 draw before then enduring back-to-back defeats against Everton and Manchester City.
Dropping to nine points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea and now sat fourth in the standings, Arsenal’s charge for glory has suffered a massive blow and there is huge question-marks surrounding the Gunners’ credentials this season.
For Arsenal, they can at least take comfort from the fact they still remain above arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur; which has been a regular theme for the Gunners over the past two decades.
21 – Arsenal have finished above Tottenham in each of the last 21 league seasons. Gap. #OptaAdvent

Under the guidance of Arsene Wenger, the Gunners have never finished below their North London rivals during a Premier League season and there is an entire generation of Spurs fans who have not experienced having bragging rights over their rival supporters.
With Arsenal’s margin being just three points currently, there is still work to do to keep the Gunners’ record going.
