Since losing both EPL meetings with Newcastle in the 2015-16 season, we have won each of our last three against the Magpies.
None of our last 20 EPL home games against Newcastle have ended as a draw (12 Wins Spurs, 8 Newcastle)
Newcastle have lost their last 7 visits to Wembley in all competitions since winning the 1955 FA Cup final against Man City - the worst ever losing run by a team at the stadium.
We have lost just one of our our last 26 home EPL games in February (W18 D7), a 0-4 defeat to Manu in 2007.
Newcastle have collected just 12 points in their 21 EPL visits to London (P21, W3, D3, L15), with half of those coming from us (W2 D0 L1).
We have wone our last two EPL games despite having conceding the first goal. We have never won three in a row after conceding first in the EPL.
Victory or defeat would see us set a new EPL recors of most consecutive games without a draw (currently 28).
Newcastle are looking to win consecutive EPL games against "big six" opposition for the first time since December 2015, with the second game in that sequence an away win against us.
Our Son Heung-min has scored 8 goals in his last 9 appearances for us in all competitons.
Salomon Rondon has scored 6 EPL goals this season - twice as many as any other Newcastle player. However the Venezuelan has not scored in consecutive top-flight appearances since September 2016. (Knowing our luck he does it against us!)
