Spurs are unbeaten in their last five league and cup games against Reading.
Reading did not fail to register a win in the first three games of their previous two Premier League seasons.
A goal for the Royals would be their 50th at home in the Premier League.
Reading managed just 19 home goals in their last Premier League campaign (2007-08) – the second lowest in the division that season.
Tottenham have won just one of their last 11 Premier League away games.
Andre Villas Boas has won only three of his last 15 Premier League games.
Aaron Lennon is poised to make his 200th Premier League appearance for Spurs.
Good win for Tottenham and AVB. I must say I really was not expecting them to win. I predicted a draw considering Tottenham’s recent form and Reading being willing to go at teams, though I suppose the latter is one of the reasons Tottenham was able to get the win.
