These two clubs are Premier League ever-presents and of the 50 league matches that have taken place between the two sides since 1992, Liverpool have won 46% of them.

Harry Kane has failed to score in his first four home Premier League games of the season, with all six of his league goals coming away from Wembley.

Christian Eriksen has scored three goals in his past five Premier League games, as many as in his previous 24.

Spurs have kept four clean sheets in their past five Premier League games after keeping just one in the seven before that.

Tottenham have not lost any of their last six Premier League matches – four wins, two draws

Tottenham have the third meanest defence in the Premier League, conceding just five goals in their first eight league matches.

Spurs have the second highest average possession this season at 60.7%, and also the second highest average pass accuracy at 85.1%.

Of the teams in the top half of the table, Liverpool have conceded the second highest amount of goals with 12 - an average of 1.5 goals against per game.

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last four league matches but they have only won one of these. That win came against Leicester last month which is subsequently their only away league win of the season.

Liverpool’s draw with Manchester United was their first clean sheet in five league matches.

With four top-flight goals to his name, Mohamed Salah is Liverpool’s top league goalscorer.

Joel Matip is the only player to have played in every minute of Liverpool’s Premier League season so far.

Since Jurgen Klopp took charge, Liverpool have won the most points in matches between the 'big six' in the Premier League (37 points).

MEMORABLE MEETING
A clash between these two sides in September 2011 was certainly a day to forget for Liverpool fans as they witnessed their side fall to a 4-0 loss at White Hart Lane. Tottenham ran riot that afternoon as Liverpool ended the game with just nine men after both Charlie Adam and Martin Skrtel were dismissed.
