Bournemouth are still searching for their first ever win over Tottenham in the Premier League. Their best result against the North London outfit was a 0-0 home draw in October 2016.
They have failed to score in any of their last three encounters with Tottenham. The only Bournemouth player to have scored in the Premier League against Mauricio Pochettino’s men is Matt Ritchie.
Bournemouth’s only ever win against Tottenham came 60 years ago in an FA Cup fifth round tie where the South Coast side earned a 3-1 win in front of their own fans at Dean Court.
Tottenham are still searching for their first home league win of the season and their first Premier League win at Wembley Stadium. They do however have a 100% record away from home.
Last season’s runners up are unbeaten in their last five Premier League matches and they have also kept three clean sheets from their last four outings.
Tottenham have scored 14 Premier League goals this season - an average of two goals per game, and they have conceded just five at the other end - an average of 0.71 top flight goals against.
Harry Kane has scored six goals in seven Premier League matches and has found the net once every 104 minutes this season.
What is more impressive is that Kane has failed to score in his opening three matches and has scored six in his last four league outings. September saw the England international average 1.5 goals per game in the Premier League.
Tottenham have won 16 of their last 20 matches in the Premier League.
Bournemouth have picked up all of their four league points at home and are yet to get off the mark on the road this season.
Bournemouth have scored just four Premier League goals this season and not one player has scored more than a single goal so far. They have conceded 11 at the other end.
Belgian pairing Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld have played every minute of Tottenham’s Premier League campaign so far, and are joined by Hugo Lloris as ever-presents for the club this season.
Asmir Begovic and Charlie Daniels are the only ever-presents in the Premier League for Bournemouth this term.
April 2017 saw Tottenham make easy work of Bournemouth in one of their final ever outings at White Hart Lane. They kept their title hopes alive for at least another week as they strolled to a lunchtime 4-0 win.
