Ahead of Liverpool's home clash with Tottenham Hotspur - their 50th game of the 2015-16 campaign - check out 17 pre-match facts and figures courtesy of club statistician Ged Rea.

Earlier this season the teams drew 0-0 at White Hart Lane in Jürgen Klopp's first game in charge.

Last season, Liverpool recorded a league double over the Londoners and at Anfield won 3-2, with Lazar Markovic opening the scoring before Harry Kane equalised. Steven Gerrard scored a penalty only for Mousa Dembele to make it 2-2. Seven minutes from time, Mario Balotelli, with his only league goal for the club, sealed a Reds victory.

The Reds have lost just once on the last 21 occasions they have hosted Spurs in the league, winning 14 and drawing six.

Liverpool are two goals short of recording 50 against Tottenham at Anfield in the Premier League.

They are also unbeaten in six league meetings since losing in the capital in November 2012.

17 of the last 19 goals scored in the league meetings have come from Liverpool.

In the last six clashes Liverpool have scored 18 goals and conceded four.

This will be the Reds' 50th game of the campaign. Their progression to the last eight of the Europa League means they will play at least 60 games in a season for the first time since 2005-06.

Roberto Firmino has scored four goals in his last four Anfield league games.

The Reds are looking to record back-to-back home league wins for the first time this season.

Spurs have won one of their last eight league meetings with Liverpool - a 2-1 victory at White Hart Lane in November 2012.

Tottenham's heaviest defeat at Anfield came in September 1978 when they lost 7-0. It is still the club's biggest ever league defeat.

Tottenham have picked up nine points from the last possible 63 in visits to Anfield.

Spurs have won four times in the last 69 league meetings at Anfield. They came in 1985, 1986, 1993 and 2011.

Kane will set a new record for most goals for Spurs in a Premier League campaign if he scores once more this season. He is currently the joint-record scorer with the 21 he netted last season. The striker has scored 10 goals in his last 10 league games and five in his last three.

Spurs have lost only one of the last 10 in the league (at West Ham United last month), picking up 25 points from the last possible 30.

They have lost only twice on the road this season in the Premier League - on the opening day at Manchester United and at West Ham. Both defeats came by a single goal.
