After winning 2-0 at St James’ Park in August, Tottenham Hotspur are looking for their first league double over Newcastle United since 2004/05.

Since a 2-1 defeat to Norwich City in April 2012, Spurs have won their last 17 home Premier League matches against promoted sides.

Newcastle have won their last three Premier League visits to Spurs, with Ayoze Perez scoring the winner on the past two occasions.

Newcastle have won six Premier League away matches from losing positions against Spurs. No side have beaten another by coming from behind away from home in the competition as many times.
