Spurs 3-0 United - the key stats

Posted on 10 April 2016  - 22:00

The stats that mattered from our fine 3-0 win against Manchester United at the Lane on Sunday.



As it stands - Sunday's win means we're seven points behind Leicester, who beat Sunderland 2-0 in the 1.30pm kick-off.

Dele's record - Dele Alli stretched his record of goals for a teenager at Spurs in a Premier League season with his eighth - two clear now of Nicky Barmby, who scored six in 1992-93. Dele turns 20 on Monday.

15-year itch - Sunday marked our first home win over United since May, 2001. Willem Korsten struck twice that day as we won 3-1, Les Ferdinand also on target.
