Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has won eight Premier League games against Crystal Palace – against no side has he won more (also eight against Swansea City).

Crystal Palace have lost their last six Premier League games against Tottenham Hotspur, scoring just one goal across those matches.

Against only two teams have Spurs had a longer Premier League winning run than they have against Crystal Palace (six in a row) – they won seven in a row against Man City (between 2004 and 2007) and Swansea City (between 2012 and 2015).

Crystal Palace have never lost seven consecutive top-flight matches against an opponent – they also lost in a row against Arsenal between 2005 and 2015.

25 of the last 26 goals scored in Premier League games between Crystal Palace and Spurs have been netted in the second-half – there has been one first half goal scored in the last 14 meetings.

Tottenham have won their last five Premier League London derbies – they last had a longer such run in the top-flight between October 1950 and August 1951 (eight in a row).

Crystal Palace are winless in their five Premier League home games this season – their longest such run at the start of a league season since 1997-98 (winless in first 15).

Tottenham have won more away Premier League games in 2018 than any other side (11). Only once have Spurs won more top-flight away games in a single calendar year (17 in 1960).

Tottenham’s Harry Kane has scored 24 goals in 37 games in London derbies in the Premier League, at a ratio of 0.65 per game – of players to play in a minimum of five, only Thierry Henry (43 in 59, 0.73) has a better ratio.

Only Teddy Sheringham (32) has scored more Premier League goals in London derbies for Spurs than Harry Kane (24) – he is joint-second on the list, alongside Jermain Defoe who also netted 24 times.
