Tottenham boss José Mourinho has faced Burnley at home more often without winning than he has any other side in all competitions in his managerial career, though all three such games against them have ended level (1 with Chelsea, 2 with Man Utd).

Burnley’s Robbie Brady is averaging a goal or assist every 68 minutes in the Premier League this season (1 goal, 2 assists in 203 minutes), with all three of his goal involvements coming against ‘big six’ teams (two assists v Chelsea, one goal v Man City).

Tottenham’s Dele Alli is scoring a goal every 85 minutes under José Mourinho in all competitions this season, compared to one every 374 minutes under Mauricio Pochettino. Alli last scored in three consecutive Premier League games in March 2017.

Tottenham have won seven of their last eight home games against Burnley in all competitions (D1) since a 1-4 defeat in the League Cup in January 1983.

Burnley won their last Premier League match against Spurs, 2-1 at Turf Moor in February. They last won consecutive top-flight games against them back in April 1975.

Burnley have lost 21 of their 28 Premier League games in London (75%), winning three and drawing four. Since beating West Ham 3-0 in March 2018, the Clarets have lost seven of their eight such games (D1), conceding 23 goals in the process.

Tottenham Hotspur have conceded twice in each of José Mourinho’s first four matches in charge in all competitions. They haven’t conceded two or more goals in five consecutive games since February 2004 under David Pleat.

Burnley won their last away league game 3-0 against Watford – they’ve not won consecutive league games on the road since a run of three in April 2018.

Tottenham’s Son Heung-min has been directly involved in 13 goals in his 14 appearances at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in all competitions, more than any other player (8 goals, 5 assists). The Korean averages a goal involvement every 83 minutes at the ground, compared to one every 101 minutes at Wembley and one every 93 minutes at the old White Hart Lane.
