Head to head records: Away v Tottenham

For the first time since Mike Ashley became the owner of our club, Wednesday will be seeing Newcastle’s first trip to Wembley since its renovation. Quelle-f***ing-surprise that silverware is not at stake which is something often associated with matches at Wembley. The last trip to Wembley for the Toon came back 2000 as we were beaten by Chelsea in the FA Cup Semi-Final.

Away from the emphasis of visiting Wembley, the last draw in our history against Tottenham came back in October 2011 with Shola Ameobi scoring a late equaliser on what is now the twelfth last meeting with Tottenham. The last time we drew away at Tottenham came in December 1999 in the third round of the FA Cup but it is nice to mention that we won 6-1 in the replay ten days later.

One interesting fact in our favour is that we were the last opposing team to beat Tottenham (in December 2015) before they left White Hart Lane last season. A win that was also our third consecutive win away at Tottenham after Mitro came off the bench to equalise and Ayoze scored past Lloris in the last minute. Tottenham have not beaten us in the capital since Gareth Bale scored twice in a 2-1 defeat in February 2013.
