Spurs have lost more away Premier League matches at Old Trafford (21) than any team has lost away from home at a stadium in the competition’s history.

The side playing at home in Premier League meetings between Manchester United and Spurs has won each of the last seven matches, stretching back to March 2015 – prior to this run, the home team in this fixture had won just seven of the previous 24 meetings.

A team from London hasn’t won away against Manchester United in the Premier League since Spurs’ win on New Year’s Day 2014 – since then, London clubs have taken just seven points from a possible 66 at Old Trafford (P22 W0 D7 L15).

Manchester United’s next Premier League home defeat will be their 50th in the competition at Old Trafford. Thirty-one per cent (15) of their Premier League home defeats have come since 2013- 14; the first season without Sir Alex Ferguson in charge.

Since taking over at Manchester United ahead of the 2016-17 Premier League season, Jose Mourinho has guided his team to 153 points – 16 fewer than opponents Spurs and 31 fewer than rivals Manchester City.

Harry Kane (18 goals) has scored two goals more than Romelu Lukaku (16) versus ‘big six’ opposition in the Premier League; this despite playing 2008 minutes fewer and attempting 31 shots fewer than the Belgian in these games.

David de Gea has conceded 10 goals from the last 14 shots on target that he’s faced for Spain and Manchester United combined since the start of the 2018 World Cup.
