West Ham are looking to secure consecutive league wins over Spurs since beating them in both matches in the 2013-14 campaign.

Tottenham have won three of their last five away league games against West Ham (L2), including the last two in a row. They’ve won never won three consecutive top-flight away games against the Hammers.

In all competitions, the away side has won five of the last six meetings between West Ham and Tottenham (two wins for West Ham, three for Spurs), with the other ending 1-1.

West Ham lost their last home league London derby, 1-2 vs Crystal Palace. They’ve not lost back-to-back such games at the London Stadium, last doing so in March 2015 at the Boleyn Ground (three in a row).

Tottenham are winless in 12 Premier League away games (D3 L9), their third longest such run in the competition after runs of 14 between May 2000-January 2001 (under George Graham) and 13 between March-November 1997 (under Gerry Francis).

Tottenham have dropped a league-high 12 points from winning positions in the Premier League this season – just two fewer than they dropped in the whole of 2018-19 (14).

Tottenham have scored in both halves in just one of their 12 Premier League matches so far this season (2-2 vs Man City in August) – only Southampton (0) have done so in fewer games this term.

Tottenham have gone 83 Premier League games without a 0-0 draw, the third longest such run in the competition’s history after Manchester United (114 games between May 1999-May 2002) and Ipswich Town (87 games between August 1994-September 2001).

Tottenham’s Harry Kane has scored 28 goals in 45 Premier League London derbies – only Thierry Henry (43), Teddy Sheringham (32) and Frank Lampard (32) have netted more goals in such games. Kane averages a goal every 132 minutes in these fixtures, second only to Thierry Henry (one every 114 minutes, minimum 10 goals).

Only against Liverpool (5) has West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini lost more Premier League games than he has against Spurs (3).
