Newcastle's stingy defence meets Tottenham's prolific attack on Sunday. Here's Opta's take on how that battle will unfold...

This is the first time that Newcastle have gone 10 games unbeaten in the top flight since August 1997. (W5 D5)

Spurs have scored exactly one goal on each of their last six visits to St James Park in the Premier League.

Newcastle have won four and lost none of their last five Premier League matches against Tottenham at St James Park.

If Spurs win this match, they will equal their best ever run of successive victories in the Premier League era (five), which they have done four times before.

Aaron Lennon scored in both meetings with Newcastle in the Premier League last season.

Demba Ba has scored 11 goals in 14 Premier League starts.

Newcastle are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League matches at home to London sides, but five of those games have been draws.

Spurs have won only one of their last nine trips to play teams from the north east in the Premier League (W1 D3 L5).

Only the top three sides in the Premier League have scored more goals than Tottenham this season, despite the fact that Spurs have played one game fewer than most teams.

Newcastle have conceded fewer goals than any other side in the Premier League this season and the fewest after seven games of any previous season in the top flight other than 1995-96 and 1900-01, where they had shipped just three.
