FORM

Stoke: DLWDL

KEY STATS

  • No visiting team has won more often at the Britannia Stadium than Tottenham Hotspur in the Barclays Premier League (four, along with Chelsea and Manchester United). A victory would mean Spurs have taken more points than any other away team on this ground

  • Spurs have lost just one of their last 15 league away matches (W8 D6 L1)
  • Marko Arnautovic has been involved in 15 goals in the top flight this season (scored 10, assisted five), more than any other Stoke player in a single BPL campaign
  • Spurs have conceded a league-low 13 Premier League goals away from home this season
