We last hosted PSV in a European match in March 2008 at White Hart Lane in the UEFA Cup - we lost 0-1 to a goal from Jefferson Farfan. PSV 1-0 away win over us in the 2007-08 UEFA Cup is their last away win in England as they lost to Liverpool (1-3 in October 2008), and drawn with Man Utd (0-0-in November 2015) since then.
We are winless in five CL matches (D2 L3) our longest ever winless run in Major Euorpean competition. PSV have won none of their last 11 CL matches (D5 L6) since winning 2-1 against CSKA Moscow in December 2015. Three of the five English sides to achieve just one point or fewer from their opening 3 CL group stage games went on to qualify for the next round - Newcastle in 2002-03, Arsenal in 2003-04 and Liverpool in 2007-08.
PSV are the first Dutch club side to appear at Wembley since June 1971, when Ajax won 2-0 against Panathinaikos in that Season's European Cup final. None of our 10 home CL group stage matches have ended as draws, we have won 7 and lost 3. Should PSV win, we could become the second English team that the Dutch side have beaten more than once in away European games - they have also beaten Leeds United twice.
Our Harry Kane has the best goals per game ratio of any player in CL history to play at least 10 matches in the competition (0.85 - 11 goals in 13 matches).
