Since losing both Premier League meetings with Newcastle in the 2015-16 season, Spurs have won each of their last three against the Magpies.

None of Spurs’ last 20 Premier League home games against Newcastle have ended as a draw (12 wins for Spurs, 8 wins for Newcastle).

Newcastle have lost their last seven visits to Wembley in all competitions since winning the 1955 FA Cup final against Man City – the worst ever losing run by a team at the stadium.

Spurs have lost just one of their last 26 home Premier League games in February (W18 D7), a 0-4 defeat to Manchester United in 2007.

Newcastle have collected just 12 points in their last 21 Premier League visits to London (P21 W3 D3 L15), but half of those have come against Tottenham (W2 D0 L1).

Tottenham have won their last two Premier League games despite having conceded the first goal.

Victory or defeat here would see Tottenham set a new Premier League record of most consecutive games without a draw (currently 28).

Newcastle are looking to win consecutive Premier League games against ‘big six’ opposition for the first time since December 2015, with the second game in that sequence an away win at Tottenham.

Tottenham’s Son Heung-min has scored eight goals in his last nine appearances for the club in all competitions.

Salomón Rondón has scored six Premier League goals this season – twice as many as any other Newcastle player. However, the Venezuelan hasn’t scored in consecutive top-flight appearances since September 2016.
