Stat Attack: Tottenham vs Leicester City

Harry Kane

Spurs have won just one of their last five Premier League meetings with Leicester (D2 L2).

Leicester haven’t done the league double over Tottenham since the 1998-99 campaign.

Of all teams they’ve faced at least 10 times at home in the Premier League, only against Chelsea (19%) and Man Utd (23%) do Spurs have a lower win rate than they do against Leicester (36% – won 4/11). 

The Foxes have lost both of their previous games against Spurs at Wembley Stadium, losing 0-2 in the 1961 FA Cup final and 0-1 in the 1999 League Cup final. 

Leicester are winless in their last six Premier League games in London (D3 L3), losing 0-5 at Crystal Palace in their last such match.

The last team to beat both north London sides in consecutive Premier League matches were Manchester United, who beat Spurs 3-0 and Arsenal 8-2 in August 2011. 

Against no side has Harry Kane scored more Premier League goals than he has versus Leicester City (9, level with Stoke). 

Indeed, those nine goals include two hat-tricks, one in a 4-3 win at White Hart Lane and one in a 6-1 win at the King Power Stadium. 

Kane has 28 Premier League goals this season – two more will see him score 30 in a campaign for the first time, while it will also be only the second time that two players have scored 30+ league goals in a season since 1993-94 (Andy Cole and Alan Shearer).
