Tottenham have won eight of their last nine Premier League meetings with Fulham, losing only in a home match in March 2013 (0-1).

Fulham have scored just five goals in their last 11 top-flight meetings with Spurs (W1 D2 L8), and never more than once in a match in that run.

This will be just Fulham’s third game at Wembley Stadium. They lost the 1975 FA Cup final against West Ham, before beating Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final in 2018. 

Tottenham have lost just two of their last 38 home league games (W30 D6 L2), vs Chelsea and Manchester City last season.

Tottenham got off to a winning start against Newcastle but haven’t won their first two games to a Premier League campaign since 2014-15.

Fulham have conceded in each of their last 18 Premier League away games – the longest current run without a clean sheet away in the top-flight (among the 20 teams in 2018-19). 

Spurs are on a run of 18 consecutive home Premier League victories against newly promoted opponents, conceding just once in their last nine matches of this kind and just seven in total across those 18 games.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane has never scored a Premier League goal in August, despite playing 14 games, 988 minutes and attempting 46 shots. By contrast, he’s scored nine goals from 41 shots and 820 minutes in Premier League games in September. 

After a run that saw him score 17 goals in 16 Premier League London derby matches between January 2015 and November 2016, Tottenham’s Harry Kane has netted just five goals in his last 13 such fixtures.
