This will be the 3rd EPL meeting between us and Cardiff, with we winning both matches 1-0 during the 2013-14 season. Cardiff are winless in 7 matches against us in all competitions (W0,D2, L5), scoring just once in those matches, a 2-1 defeat league defeat in January 1978.
We have won our last 7 home matches in all competitions against Cardiff, scoring 19 and conceding 5. We have won 13 of our last 15 home league matches against Welsh sides (D2) since Cardiff won a 2-0 in a top flight match n November 1954. This will be Cardiff's first game at Wembley since the 2012 League cup final against Liverpool, where they lost on penalties following a 2-2 draw.
We are unbeaten in 37 EPL games against promoted sides (W34, D3) since losing to QPR in April 2012. The run is the 2nd longest of its kind in the EPL, after Chelsea's record of 63 between May 2001 and September 2011. We have lost our last home EPL game against Liverpool, but we have not lost back to back EPL home games since May 2015, vs Aston Villa and Man City at White Hart Lane.
Cardiff are winless in their 7 EPL games so far this season - only twice in their history have they failed to win any of their first 8 games in a league campaign (1964-65 in the second tier and 1989-90 in the third division).
Kane has scored against 26 of the 27 different sides he has faced in the EPL. The only side he has yet to find the net against is Cardiff - he played just 16 minutes against them across two games in the 2013-14 campaign. Of the 28 players to have scored 100 EPL goals, Harry is one of just 2 who has scored fewer home goals (54) than away (59) - Ryan Giggs is the other
