Stat Attack: Huddersfield Town vs Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Huddersfield lost both Premier League matches against Spurs last season, scoring none and conceding six in the process. 

Tottenham are unbeaten in each of their last seven games in all competition against Huddersfield, though only two of those meetings have come in this century (W4 D3). 

Huddersfield have failed to score in their last five home Premier League games, the longest run since Southampton’s run of six ending in August 2017, and just three short of Man City’s record run of eight in the competition between January and May 2007. 

Huddersfield have failed to score in all three of their Premier League home matches this season. Only twice in top-flight history has a team waited longer for their first home goal of the season (West Brom in 1921-22 and Everton in 1998-99 – both five games). 

Tottenham have scored in 31 of their last 32 Premier League games, failing only at West Brom back in May (0-1). 

Spurs have lost two of their last five Premier League away games (W3), more than they had in their previous 11 on the road (W6 D4 L1). 

Huddersfield haven’t failed to win any of their first seven league games in a single campaign since 1997-98, when they ended up finishing 16th in the second tier.

All three of Huddersfield’s Premier League goals this season have come from set piece situations, including the only two from throw-ins in the division this season. 

Tottenham’s Erik Lamela has scored two goals in three Premier League appearances this season, the same number he scored in 25 games in the competition last term. 

Tottenham’s Erik Lamela has scored in his last two Premier League games, with both appearances coming as a substitute. The last player to score in three consecutive Premier League games, all from coming off the bench was Adam Le Fondre in January 2013.
