In Premier League history, no player has scored more goals on New Year’s Day than Harry Kane, with five. He also has three assists in such matches, with only Cesc Fabregas providing more on 1 January in the competition, with four.

Watford are unbeaten in their last three Premier League home matches against Spurs (W1 D2), but Spurs' last victory at Vicarage Road came on New Year's Day, in 2017.

Emmanuel Dennis has been directly involved in 10 goals in his last eight Premier League matches for Watford (six goals, four assists), having a hand in 67 per cent of the goals the Hornets have scored in those outings (10 out of 15).

Antonio Conte is unbeaten in five Premier League matches against fellow Italian managers (W4 D1), including two 3-0 wins against Claudio Ranieri in 2016/17. Meanwhile, Watford head coach Ranieri has lost each of his last four Premier League meetings with fellow Italians.
