Everton on brink of setting new Premier League record in Tottenham Hotspur match

Everton on brink of setting new Premier League record in Tottenham Hotspur match

Everton are at risk of setting a new Premier League record when they play Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday evening.

Despite suffering a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United last weekend, Toffees boss Frank Lampard will be relatively content with his side’s start to the campaign.

Although the Merseyside outfit have recorded just two wins from nine games, they were able to put together a six-match unbeaten streak during that period.

Heading into matchday 10, Everton have 10 points and occupy 12th position in the standings, and there will be optimism that they can take advantage of a Spurs side who were involved in Champions League action on Wednesday evening.

However, from a historical perspective, Everton are bidding to avoid setting an unwanted record in the Premier League.

Everton will have suffered the most defeats away to London sides in the Premier League if they succumb to another setback at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

As it stands, as many as 84 losses have been posted on visits to the capital, currently level with Newcastle United who are away to Manchester United this weekend.

Everton are also on a winless streak regarding fixtures in London since they defeated West Ham United by a 1-0 scoreline back in May 2021.

Since then, five defeats and two draws have been recorded, including a 5-0 reverse to Spurs in last season’s corresponding fixture on March 7 earlier this year.

Another statistic which is firmly against Everton ahead of this encounter is that they have never scored a goal against a team managed by Antonio Conte.

Remarkably, the Italian has kept six successive clean sheets in the Premier League, putting him one match away from equalling Roberto Mancini‘s league record of seven which came against Wigan Athletic.
