If three goals are scored on Saturday, this will become the Premier League's highest-scoring fixture, overtaking the 151 goals scored in matches between Arsenal and Everton.

Matches featuring these two teams have had 22 penalties, more than any other in the competition's history.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has a great record against Spurs, scoring all three of Liverpool's Premier League goals against them last season.
