Spurs, who won 2-0 at St. James’ Park in August, are looking to achieve their first league double over Newcastle since the 2004-05 campaign.

The Magpies have won their last three away Premier League visits to Spurs. 

Spurs have won their last 17 home Premier League games against promoted sides since a 2-1 defeat to Norwich City in April 2012. 

Newcastle haven’t visited Wembley since April 2000, losing an FA Cup semi-final to Chelsea – the Magpies have lost their last six matches at Wembley, a run stretching back to the 1974 FA Cup final. 

Newcastle have won six Premier League away games from losing positions against Spurs, more than any side has beaten another from behind away from home in the competition.

Spurs have lost two of their last four Premier League games (W1 D1), more than they’d lost in their previous 18 in the competition (W13 D4 L1). 

After a run of four consecutive Premier League victories, Newcastle have lost each of their last three. 

Spurs have won their last seven Premier League games played on a Wednesday, including two this season (2-0 wins at home against Brighton and Man Utd). 

Since winning 3-1 and 4-3 at Arsenal and Leeds United respectively in the space of four days in December 2001, Newcastle have won one of their 50 away Premier League matches against sides starting the day in the top four (D8 L41), a 1-0 win at Arsenal in November 2010.
