Stat Attack: Tottenham vs Leicester City

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Dom Le Roy
  • Tottenham and Leicester have met seven times in all competitions in the last two seasons, with Spurs enjoying three wins to Leicester’s two (D2).
  • Leicester’s 1-0 win in January away to Spurs was their first league victory at White Hart Lane since October 1999 (D1 L3).
  • Spurs have gone nine Premier League games against the Foxes without keeping a clean sheet – only against Arsenal are they on a longer run without a shutout among current top-flight sides (14 games).
  • The nine goals scored in the four clashes between Spurs and Leicester last season were all scored by different players.
  • Claudio Ranieri has never lost a Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur (W7 D3).
  • Spurs are yet to concede a single goal from open play in the Premier League this season, with all four of the goals they’ve conceded coming from set piece situations.
  • Leicester have lost all four of their away league games so far this season – the only reigning champion in the history of the top-flight to lose their opening five were Everton in 1932/33, whose losing run was halted by a 2-2 draw at Filbert Street with Leicester in the next game.
  • Tottenham are looking to avoid defeat in their first 10 league games for the first time in the league since 1990/91 (W6 D4 that season).
  • This fixture pits the two sides that have collected the most points in the Premier League in 2016 going into the weekend against each other (Tottenham 54 and Leicester 53).
  • Shinji Okazaki ended a run of 13 Premier League games without scoring by finding the net against Palace.
