Tottenham to face ‘easy’ Everton with an eye on ‘1,000 Club’ status

Tottenham are on course to become the sixth Premier League club to amass 1,000 points since the League started in 1992, and are almost certain to reach that tally this season. They have 969 points to date, so need another 31 points from 30 games remaining this campaign to get there. As our first table shows, Manchester United have the most Premier League points to date (1,508), with four other clubs on more than 1,000 already: Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Aston Villa.

Tottenham are vying with Everton, who they face at White Hart Lane in this weekend’s Saturday lunchtime match, to be the next club to reach 1,000.

Everton’s task to get there ahead of Spurs is a tough one anyway – they trail Spurs by 36 points at the moment in the all-time tally – and made tougher by the head-to-head record in the Premier League era.

Spurs have won more points from Everton (67) since 1992 than from any other side. As our main table shows (scroll below), Spurs have played Everton 36 times in the Premier League, winning 67 points to Everton’s 28. This gives Spurs a “superiority” of 39 points.

Spurs have the best head-to-head record in superiority terms against Manchester City, with Spurs gaining 62 points to City’s 14 from their 27 Premier League meetings for a superiority of 48. City have won just three of those 27 games.

Among current Premier League clubs, Spurs have have the worst record against Manchester United then Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Newcastle United and Aston Villa in that order. They have positive records against everyone else, apart from Bolton, where each side has taken 30 points from 22 meetings.

Among former Premier League clubs, Spurs won most points in League games from Southampton (38) but also lost 35 points to the same team for a superiority of just three.

Portsmouth and Norwich proved good for points for Spurs, while Leicester and Nottingham Forest generally offered lower returns.
