- Tottenham have kept a clean sheet in 12 of their last 22 Premier League meetings with Crystal Palace (including eight in the last 10). Of all teams they’ve faced more than 10 times in the competition, they’ve not conceded in the highest % of games against the Eagles (55%).
- 20 of Tottenham’s last 25 Premier League goals against Crystal Palace have been scored in the second half of games. However, all five of their strikes against them last season came in the opening 45 minutes.

- Spurs manager Jose Mourinho has won 40 of his 63 Premier League London derbies (64%), the highest ratio of any manager to manage at least 20 in the Premier League. However, he is winless in his last two London derbies versus Crystal Palace (D1 L1).
- Crystal Palace have lost 18 of their last 22 home Premier League matches against teams starting the day in the top-four of the league (W1 D3), with their only win that run coming in Roy Hodgson’s first win as Eagles boss in October 2017 against Chelsea.
- Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke scored twice in his last Premier League appearance against West Brom, as many as he’d scored in his previous 31. The Belgian hasn’t scored in consecutive league appearances since April 2017.
