Tottenham host Arsenal at Wembley on Saturday with crucial Premier League points and local bragging rights on the line.
Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at five classic north London derby encounters.
Tottenham 2 Arsenal 1 (Premier League, February 7 2015)
The England forward scored twice as Spurs fought back from a half-time deficit to win and move above Arsenal in the table.
Kane’s second, a towering header four minutes from time, proved a fitting end to a pulsating contest at White Hart Lane.
Arsenal 4 Tottenham 4 (Premier League, October 29 2008)
Former Gunner David Bentley crashed in a stunning early long-range effort to put Spurs ahead.
Arsenal, though, rallied to exploit Harry Redknapp’s men at the back as Mikael Silvestre, William Gallas and Emmanuel Adebayor all scored to seemingly put the hosts in control at 3-1.
Darren Bent pulled one back before Robin van Persie looked to have settled the contest with a fourth Arsenal goal after 68 minutes.
However, with 89 minutes on the clock, Jermaine Jenas made it 4-3 to set up a grandstand final – and there was just enough time left for Aaron Lennon to net a dramatic equaliser to earn Spurs a share of the spoils.
Tottenham 2 Arsenal 2 (Premier League, April 25 2004)
Patrick Vieira and Robert Pires struck in the first half to put the Gunners in charge.
Although David Pleat’s Spurs side produced a second-half fight back – secured with a last-minute penalty from Robbie Keane – it was not enough to stop fierce rivals Arsenal celebrating a famous title success in their own back yard.
Tottenham 3 Arsenal 1 (FA Cup semi-final, April 14 1991)
Under George Graham, Arsenal were heading toward their second First Division title in three seasons, and had sights set on the double.
However, Gascoigne set Spurs on their way after only five minutes – letting fly with a sublime 35-yard free-kick which flew into the top right-hand corner past David Seaman.
Spurs eventually won 3-1, Gary Lineker scoring twice. Terry Venables’ men went on to lift the trophy back at Wembley in the FA Cup final against Nottingham Forest, which saw Gascoigne taken off on a stretcher with a serious knee injury.
Tottenham 0 Arsenal 1 (First Division, May 3 1971)
Spurs goalkeeper Pat Jennings, later to become a Gunner himself, held the visitors at bay until two minutes from time when he was beaten as Ray Kennedy’s header went in off the underside of the crossbar.
Five days later at Wembley, Arsenal beat Liverpool 2-1 to secure the double.
