Tottenham have won their last eight Premier League games against Crystal Palace, conceding just one goal in that run. Only against Birmingham (10 in September 1964) and Blackpool (9 in January 1964) have they had longer winning runs in their top-flight history.
Crystal Palace are winless in their last seven away Premier League games against Spurs (D2 L5), failing to score in each of the last six.
Tottenham lost their last home Premier League London derby, 0-1 against West Ham in April. They last lost consecutive home London derbies in the league back in November 2004 (vs Charlton and Arsenal).
Tottenham have lost two of their last four home league games (W1 D1) – more than they had in their previous 30 in the Premier League at White Hart Lane/Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (W25 D4 L1).
Crystal Palace’s last five Premier League away games against ‘big six’ sides have seen them pick up wins against Man City, Arsenal and Manchester United (L2), while they were also the last side to win away at Anfield. Indeed, since the start of 2016-17, the Eagles have won away at five of the ‘big six’ sides (more than any other club), with Tottenham being the only exception.
Spurs have trailed for 127 minutes in home Premier League games this season – 22 minutes more than any other side.
This is only the fourth time Crystal Palace will play a Premier League match starting the day in the top-four.
