Arsenal’s November in numbers ahead of Huddersfield Town on Wednesday evening

Eleven: The number of away matches Arsenal have lost in this calendar year so far - the worst since 2010

Ten: The number of unbeaten league matches against Burnley. See also the number of Europa League points the Gunners have earned in qualifying for the knockout stages

Nine: Years without an Arsenal goal by Francis Coquelin. Though the Islington Gazette was there when he, er, hit the post in Cologne

Eight: The number of league games won. The same as Chelsea

Seven: The number of wins Spurs have in the league. As our guest columnist Ella Meadowcroft wrote after the 2-0 victory over the Lillywhites. ‘Power shift? North London remains very much red...’

Six: The number of league matches out of a total of six won when Alexis Sanchez and Alexander Lacazette have started together. See also the number of goals Burnley scored in during their 6-1 FACup win in Feb 1896, the first fixture between the sides

Five: Defeats in all competitions – which despite the poor performance during the last loss, in Cologne, was also the least damaging. Also the number of goals Huddersfield scored during their last away against Arsenal back in November 1954 when they triumphed 5-3 at Highbury

Four: The position Arsenal leapfrogged Spurs into. See also the number of Premier League goals Sanchez has now scored against Burnley

Three: The number of consecutive matches an Arsenal side has grabbed an injury time winner against Burnley. See also the number of penalties conceded in the last six matches

Two: The number of wins Cologne have picked up from 17 games this season. Also the number of goals scored by the Terriers during their only victory in the last 15 matches between Arsenal and Huddersfield – a 2-1 victory in the old Division One back January 1971 – as the sides gear up to face each for the first time in the league since the 1971-72 season

One: Team in North London
