Tottenham have won eight of their past nine Premier League home games against Southampton, losing the other in May 2016.

Spurs won a Premier League game when having a player sent off for the first time since September 2017 against West Ham.

Southampton had 58.8% possession against Tottenham, the most by a non ‘big six’ side in an away league game against them since Everton in November 2014 (61.4%).

Since the start of last season, Southampton have both scored and conceded goals in 29 different Premier League games – only Arsenal (31) have done so in more.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane scored in his sixth consecutive Premier League appearance against Southampton – only Robin van Persie against Stoke (eight), Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink against West Ham (seven) and Romelu Lukaku against West Ham (7) have had longer scoring streaks against an opponent in the competition.

Tanguy Ndombele has scored more goals in his first five Premier League appearances for Tottenham (two) than he managed in 69 Ligue 1 appearances for Amiens and Lyon combined (one).

Serge Aurier became the first Tottenham player to be sent off in a Premier League home match since Kyle Naughton against Stoke in November 2014.
