Ledley's milestone

Ledley King's next league game will be his 200th Premier League appearance.

The skipper made his debut, aged 18, against Liverpool at Anfield on May 1, 1999, became a regular in season 2001-02 and was ever-present during 2004-05.

He has scored seven League goals to date, including the fastest ever Premier League goal, timed at 10 seconds, at Bradford City on December 9, 2000. In addition, Ledley has played in 44 cup matches, scoring four goals.

Meanwhile, Roman Pavlyuchenko has joined an elite band of players to have scored an international goal as a Spurs player BEFORE making their Spurs debut! Roman did just that against Wales on Wednesday and Allan Nielsen did likewise, scoring in Denmark's 2-0 win against Slovenia on September 1, 1996 before making his Spurs debut against Wimbledon a few days later.
