We are looking to win 3 consecutive top flight meetings with Man Utd for the first time since 1960. We could become the first team since Everton in 1987 to win 4 consecutive home top-flight matches against Man U. We have not lost consecutive home league games since May 2015, when we lost against Aston Villa and Man City.
Kane and Moura were on the scoresheet in our 3-0 win in the reverse fixture - Only Clint Dempsey in 2012-13 and Jermaine Jenas in 2005-06 have scored home and away against Man Utd for Spurs in the same EPL campaign. Kane has scored 8 goals in his last 8 EPL starts
Manu have lost their last three away EPL matches against us - they had lost just 3 of their first 23 against us in the competition between 1992 and 2014 (W12 D8). They have lost 2 of their last 3 matches at Wembley in all competitions (including this exact fixture last season), as many as they had in their last 15 at the ground (W8 D5 L2). They have just won 4 of their last 17 away EPL matches in London (D4 L9). Victory for Manu would see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer equal Matt Busby's record of a Man Utd's Manager winning their first five league games in charge of the club.
Marcus Rashford has been directly involved in 9 goals in his last 8 EPL games for Man Utd (4 goals, 5 Assists), and is looking to score in 3 consecutive top-flight games for the first time in his career
