Six shooters - We've won six matches on the trot in all competitions and four on the spin in the Premier League.

First for Kieran - Kieran Trippier scored his first Spurs goal, first Premier League goal in 43 appearances and first since New Year's Day, 2014 when he was on target for Burnley in the Championship against Huddersfield.
