Sheffield United (SU) are winless in their last 17 Premier League (PL) games in London (D6 L11) since beating Chelsea 2-1 in October 1992. On top of that, Yorkshire side have lost 10 of their last 12 visits to us int he PL (W1 D1), with Hull winning 1-0 in October 2008.
SU have lost just one away league game in 2019 (W6 D9 L1) - no team in the top four tiers of English football have lost fewer (also Liverpool 1). They have conceded just 8 in their 11 PL games so far - no team has conceded fewer. The last newly promoted team to conceded fewer after 11 games were Wigan Athletic in 2005-06 (5).
We are unbeaten in 4 home games against SU in all competitions (W3 D1) since a 0-1 loss at WHL in November 1991. We have always scored at least twice and have never lost in the 6 previous PL meetings between us (W4 D2).
However we are winless in 4 PL games (D2 L2), having last had a longer run earlier this year (5 games in Feb/Mar). In 2017 and 2018 combined, we only had one winless of 4+ PL games (Nov / Dec 2017). We have conceded more than once in just one of our 15 home PL games in 2019 (2-2 vs Everton in May).
SU will be the 29th different side that Kane has faced in the PL. He has scored against all previous 28 clubs he has played against, making him the only player to have scored against 100% of the opponents he has faced in the competition (min. 2 opponents). Dele Ali has scored in 39 PL games without losing (W31 D8 L0) - only Darius Vassell (46) and James Milner (53) have scored in more without ending on the losing side in PL history
