Magic Numbers: Tottenham

@Everton

Everton travel to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday looking to chalk up a fourth successive Barclays Premier League win.

Here we preview the trip to White Hart Lane with the help of stats, facts and numbers...

1League victories for Everton in London this season – at West Ham in December. We are, however, unbeaten in our three visits to the capital since August, having also drawn at QPR and Fulham.

2 Victories for David Moyes in his three Premier League encounters against Andre Villas-Boas. The Blues won 2-1 in the reverse fixture against Spurs in December, having previously defeated a Chelsea side managed by the Portuguese 2-0 at Goodison Park in February 2012.

Derek Mountfield tracks Tottenham's Mark Falco. The latter was famously denied by goalkeeper Neville Southall in a crunch top-of-the-table clash in Everton's title-winning campaign of 1984/85.

3 Wins at White Hart Lane for Everton in the David Moyes era – 2-0 in 2006/07, 3-1 in 2007/08 and 1-0 in 2008/09.

5 Years since Everton last won four successive league matches. In February and March 2008, the Blues achieved the feat by recording home wins over Reading and Portsmouth and away victories at Manchester City and Sunderland.

14 Goals scored in a fixture between Everton and Tottenham in October 1958, the Toffees famously succombing to a 10-4 defeat which equalled the highest aggregate scoreline for a top-flight game in England. Everton's Jimmy Harris had more reason than most to be frustrated - he ended up on the losing side despite bagging himself a hat-trick!

Jimmy Harris nets one of his three goals in Everton's 10-4 defeat at White Hart Lane in 1958.
 
28 Years ago this week since the most important ever encounter between the two teams at White Hart Lane. In April 1985, league leaders Everton took a three-point advantage over Spurs to North London and emerged 2-1 victors in a game famous for Neville Southall’s fantastic late save from Mark Falco. Howard Kendall's Toffees, of course, went on to wrap up a league and European Cup Winners' Cup double that season.
 
49 League victories against Spurs in our history, with 33 coming at Goodison and 16 in London.

 
299 Goals scored away from home in all competitions by Everton since David Moyes took charge in 2002. Of those, a total of 13 have been netted at White Hart Lane.

600 Away league victories for the Toffees should they triumph on Sunday.
