- After a run of four wins and a draw between 2010 and 2012, Spurs are winless in their last nine Premier League games against Liverpool (W0 D3 L6).
- Liverpool are unbeaten in their last four away league games against Spurs (W2 D2), conceding just one goal in that time and netting nine themselves.
- Wembley Stadium could become the 53 rd different ground that Liverpool have won a Premier League game at – their current record of 52 is the highest of any club in the competition.
- There have been 140 goals scored in Premier League matches between Tottenham and Liverpool, two goals shy of the current record set by both Everton/Man Utd and Chelsea/Tottenham (142).
- This fixture has also seen a Premier League record of nine own goals scored – three of those were netted by Jamie Carragher in Spurs’ favour, which is the same tally of goals that he scored for Liverpool during his 508-game Premier League career at the club.
- After winning his first two meetings with Liverpool in March and September 2013 with Southampton, Mauricio Pochettino has failed to win any of his subsequent seven Premier League games against the Reds (D3 L4). Only against Chelsea (5) has he lost more Premier League games than versus Liverpool (4).
- This exact fixture was Jurgen Klopp’s first-ever Premier League game as a manager, back on October 17 th 2015. Since that date, Liverpool have won 137 Premier League points, which is the sixth best tally in this period and 23 fewer than Spurs; who have the most in this timeframe (160).
- Harry Kane hasn’t scored in either of his Premier League home appearances against Liverpool (173 mins) – the only side he’s faced more often without finding the net at home in the competition is Crystal Palace (three apps, 269 mins).
- Kane has had 28 shots (with 10 on target) in home Premier League games this season without finding the net. By contrast, in away games Kane has had 22 shots with nine on target and found the net six times.
- Liverpool have won 61% of their Premier League games in which Sadio Mane has started since the start of the 2016-17 season, compared to 40% when he’s not been in their starting XI. The Senegalese forward has also scored the most Premier League goals for the Reds since his debut (16).
- Since making his Premier League debut in September 2013, Christian Eriksen has been directly involved in more goals in the competition than any other midfielder (74 – 34 goals, 40 assists).
