For this weekend's derby, there was more on the line than three points and a jump up the Premiership table. This was about dominance in north London.
A Spurs win showed that the kings of north London are firmly planted in Tottenham.
Although Arsenal has bested Tottenham in every league table since 1995, the situation looks ripe for Spurs to overtake their older brothers from the northern side of the sandbox. Arsenal is absolutely dismal, just two points above relegation. Tottenham is two points out of a possible Champions League spot, with playing one less game than everyone else due to their opener against Everton being postponed.
Tottenham has made a run in the Premiership, winning four straight league matches. But this next stretch of games will either cement Tottenham's place as a team ready to go back to the Champions League or a team that will have to claw its way into Europa competition once again.
Let's have a look at the next four matches for Spurs and see if they can double their four game win streak or not.
