Stat Attack: Spurs v Crystal Palace


Spurs have won each of their last four Premier League games against Palace, conceding just once, since losing 2-1 in January 2015 at Selhurst Park.

The Eagles have failed to score in any of their last four away league matches at Spurs since a 1-1 draw in December 2004 (D1 L3); their only Premier League win at Spurs came in November 1997, winning 1-0 courtesy of a Neil Shipperley goal.

In four home Premier League games against Crystal Palace, Mauricio Pochettino is yet to see his sides concede a goal (one match with Southampton, three with Spurs).

Palace have failed to score in any of their first five away Premier League games – only one team has ever failed to score in their first six in a season, with Derby County doing so in their first eight 2007/08.

Only one team in Premier League history has lost more home games against sides starting that day bottom than Spurs (4) – Middlesbrough, who’ve lost five.

In 2017, only Liverpool and Spurs (13) have won more Premier League points against the ‘big six’ than Crystal Palace (12).

Tottenham have lost both of their London derbies in all competitions at Wembley this season, as many as they’d lost in their 16 at White Hart Lane under Mauricio Pochettino (W10 D4).

Indeed, since Pochettino joined Spurs in 2014, the Lilywhites have won more home points in Premier League London derbies than any other side (31 – W9 D4 L1).

Crystal Palace have conceded a goal with the first shot of the match they’ve faced a league-high four times this season (vs Burnley, Man Utd, Chelsea and West Ham).

Harry Kane has missed nine Premier League games for Spurs since the start of 2016-17 – in those games, Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min have both scored four goals.
