Spurs have won four of their last six Premier League away games in which they’ve conceded first (L2), including on both occasions this season (6-2 v Everton and 2-1 v Fulham).

Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri suffered his first Premier League defeat against Spurs (W7 D4 L1), in what was his 12th game in the competition against them.

Fulham are the first team in the top five European Leagues to have conceded 50 goals in league competition this season (51).


Spurs won a Premier League game without Harry Kane or Son Heung-min for the first time since March 2014 (3-2 v Southampton).

Since his Premier League debut in August 2015, Dele Alli has been directly involved in 47% of Spurs’ goals in the competition when Harry Kane hasn’t played (7/15 – five goals and two assists).

No player has scored more headed goals than Spurs midfielder Dele Alli in the Premier League this season (4 – joint-high with Aleksandar Mitrovic).

Fernando Llorente’s own goal for Spurs was their first in the Premier League since January 21st 2018 (364 days ago), when Davinson Sanchez did so against Southampton.

Spurs have scored four Premier League own goals against Fulham – against no other side have they scored more (also four v Southampton).
