24 July 2020
  • Harry Kane is Spurs’ leading scorer this season with 17 goals. He has scored six times since the restart and is the club’s leading all-time Premier League marksman with 142 goals in 206 appearances. He has been the top goalscorer in the Premier League twice with 25 in 2015/16 and 29 in 2016/17.
  • Spurs are guaranteed to finish above Arsenal for the fourth consecutive season, having not done so for 21 consecutive seasons between 1995/96 and 2015/16. In two of the first three Premier League seasons - 1992/93 and 1994/95 - Tottenham finished above the Gunners. 
  • Palace were the first visitors to Tottenham’s new stadium back in April 2019, a game which ended in a 2-0 victory for the hosts. They became the third London club to move to a new ground while in the Premier League following West Ham in 2016 and Arsenal in 2006.
