A Big Ask

I know I always go into any game pessimistic, it's default mode for any Spurs' fan, but tonight's game can only go with one result- Chelsea taking their 14th victory on the bounce.  But just maybe...

Head-to-head
  • Tottenham have won only four of their 49 league matches against Chelsea (D19, L26), with all four of those victories coming at White Hart Lane.
  • Chelsea have won only one of their last 10 Premier League matches at White Hart Lane (D5, L4) - the 4-2 victory on 20 October 2012.
  • The Blues could do the league double against Spurs for the first time since 2005-06.
Tottenham
  • Tottenham could remain unbeaten in their opening 10 home matches of a Premier League season for the second time. The other occasion was in 2000-01 (when they won 13).
  • They have won four league games in a row, scoring 13 goals in the process and conceding just three.
  • Harry Kane has scored 17 goals in his last 17 Premier League London derbies, including 10 in his last nine played at White Hart Lane.
  • This will be Mauricio Pochettino's 150th Premier League as a manager/head coach.
Chelsea
  • A victory for Chelsea would make them the first team to win 14 consecutive top-flight matches within the same season. They would equal Arsenal's English top-flight record of 14 successive wins between February-August 2002 (over two seasons).
  • Only once before in the Premier League has a side won more points than Chelsea's 49 after 19 games - that was also Chelsea in 2005-06 (52).
  • The Blues have won six successive Premier League away games, conceding just one goal.
  • Diego Costa has scored in seven of his nine away league appearances this season, only failing to find the net at Arsenal and Sunderland.
