RIVALRIES

Spurs' White Hart Lane record against their main rivals:

v ARSENAL: Won 38, drawn 25, lost 30, scored 153, conceded 136

v CHELSEA: Won 28, drawn 22, lost 27, scored 130, conceded 121

:: Fierce rivals Chelsea and Arsenal's records are the best among visiting teams.

:: Outside of those two, Leicester have been the nearest thing to a White Hart Lane 'bogey team' - winning 16 of their 53 games at the venue, or just over 30 per cent. They enjoyed a four-game unbeaten run there between 1996 and 1999 and three successive wins in the early 1960s, including inflicting Spurs' first home defeat of the 1960-61 double-winning season.
