Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Jose Mourinho has seen his side score five goals in the Premier League for the first time since January 2015 (Chelsea 5-0 Swansea) – his Manchester United team never scored more than four goals in his 93 league games with the club.

Mourinho has never lost a Premier League game against Burnley – winning five and drawing three of eight matches – only against Swansea City (nine) has he played more games without tasting defeat in the competition.

Son Heung-min has been directly involved in 15 goals in his 15 appearances at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in all competitions, more than any other player (nine goals, six assists).

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has been directly involved in seven goals in five games under
Jose Mourinho in all competitions (four goals, three assists), over twice as many as he registered under Mauricio Pochettino this season (two goals, one assist in 10 appearances).

Alli has provided two assists in a Premier League game for just the third time and the first since December 2017 (two assists against Southampton).

Burnley’s 5-0 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur is their joint-biggest margin of defeat in the Premier League.

Burnley have won just one of their last 28 Premier League games against the ‘big six’ sides (drawn six, lost 21), losing each of their last seven in a row.

Burnley have lost each of their last 10 Premier League games against sides starting the day in the top half of the league, scoring six and conceding 29.
