This week our statistician looks at the numbers behind Arsenal's first 200 matches at Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal's victory over Spurs last week came in the 200th match played at Emirates Stadium.

It was the Club's 136th win in that time, there have also been 42 draws and 22 defeats. The Gunners have scored 432, conceded 154 and each match has featured an average of 2.93 goals.

The most common scoreline is 1-0, recorded for the 24th time at the weekend

The overall goal difference is +278, very similar to the goal difference for the last 200 games played at Highbury (+280).

The games have come in four different competitions, with the breakdown as follows: 135 in the Premier League (67.5 per cent), 38 Champions League games (19 per cent), 14 matches in the FA Cup (seven per cent) and 13 League Cup fixtures (6.5 per cent).

The first game was against Aston Villa, on Saturday, August 19, 2006. Gilberto scored in a 1-1 draw, converting a Theo Walcott cross. Walcott also claimed the assist in the 200th game. Mathieu Flamini is the only other player who featured in both matches - as a sub both times. Indeed it was Flamini who scored the first ever winning goal at the stadium - against Dynamo Zagreb in a 2-1 victory four days after that Villa draw.

Arsenal's biggest win at Emirates Stadium was the 7-0 Champions League thrashing of Slavia Prague in October 2007, and the most common scoreline is 1-0, recorded for the 24th time at the weekend.

The highest scoring match was the 7-3 win over Newcastle last season. There have been 30 different scorelines in the 200 matches.

Arsenal have scored at least once in 175 of the 200 games (87.5 per cent) and kept clean sheets in 94 of them (47 per cent).

There have been seven hat-tricks, all scored by Arsenal players. The last visiting player to score a hat-trick in an Arsenal home game was Mick Quinn, for Coventry, on the opening day of the 1993/94 season.

Theo Walcott leads the way in terms of individual appearances at Emirates Stadium, having played in 141 (70.5 per cent) of the 200 matches. Five players (Walcott, Bacary Sagna, Cesc Fabregas, Gael Clichy and Robin van Persie) have played in more than half the games, while 82 players in total have represented the Gunners at Emirates. Ten of them played just once.

Of the 53 players who have made 10 appearances or more at Emirates, Eduardo has the best win average - the Croatian striker won 28 of his 34 games (82.35 per cent). The Club's overall win percentage at the stadium is 68 per cent.

Van Persie still leads the way in terms of goals scored at Emirates, with 64, which is twice as many as the next highest scorer - Fabregas. Not including own goals, 49 different players have scored for Arsenal at Emirates - which is 60 per cent of all those who have played there..
