Stat Attack: Tottenham vs Huddersfield

Tottenham Hotspur are unbeaten in six games in all competitions against Huddersfield (W3 D3), since a 1-2 home defeat in April 1956. 

Huddersfield Town haven’t lost both league meetings with Spurs in a single season since the 1953-54 top-flight campaign. 

Spurs are unbeaten in their last 33 Premier League games against newly promoted sides (W31 D2) since a 0-1 loss at QPR in April 2012. 

Indeed, they’ve won their last 15 in a row against promoted sides – the third longest such run in Premier League history (Chelsea: 27 between 2002 and 2006 and Manchester United: 17 between 2006 and 2009). 

The Terriers are unbeaten in their last four competitive visits to Wembley Stadium (W1 D3), with the last two finishing 0-0, both of which they won on penalties. 

Huddersfield are looking to secure three consecutive Premier League wins for the first time this season, last doing so within a single top-flight season in April 1956 (four in a row). 

Spurs are currently enjoying the Premier League’s longest unbeaten run (10 games – W7 D3 L0), last losing at Manchester City in December. 

Since the start of last season, Spurs have lost just one of their 33 Premier League home games, picking up 84 points from those games – more than any other side (W26 D6 L1). 

Harry Kane’s 24 goals for Spurs this season in the Premier League have been worth 14 points – the most of any player in the competition in 2017-18

If Kane scores, he’ll be the third player to have scored 25+ goals in three consecutive Premier League campaigns, after Alan Shearer (four seasons between 93-94 and 96-97) and Thierry Henry (three seasons between 03-04 to 05-06).
