Impress your friends ahead of Saturday's game at White Hart Lane

PLAYING AWAY: Stoke City go into Saturday's game against Tottenham Hotspur on a three-game unbeaten run away from home. The win at West Bromwich Albion was sandwiched by draws at West Ham United and Aston Villa.

AN OMEN: The first time in which City achieved this feat in the Premier League, in 2009, a 1-0 win at White Hart Lane was recorded in the following game.

SUPER SIMO: Steve Simonsen had 22 shots fired towards him and 7 corners put into his box when he kept a clean sheet in the win that day, having only been called to replace the unwell Thomas Sorensen 20 minutes before kick off.

HOT AGAINST SPURS: Stoke City have scored against Tottenham in all eight of the games contested in the Premier League so far.

CAGEY STARTERS: Spurs are the only team not to have conceded a goal in the opening 15 minutes of a Premier League game this season.

THORN IN THEIR SIDE: Former Tottenham winger Matty Etherington has recorded four goals in six matches against them for Stoke in the Premier League.

FREE SCORERS: Spurs have scored in 95% of their last 20 home games in the Premier League.

A NEW RECORD: If the Potters avoid defeat on Saturday they will set a new Club record of 8 games without defeat in the Premier League. It would be their longest run in the top flight since 1974, although the record is 11 games from 1946/47.
