Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

The 4-5 scoreline against Arsenal on Saturday was the first we have been involved in since joining the Football League in 1908 - a total of over 3,500 matches.

It takes our tally to 38 different scorelines including every possible combination of nine goals or less.

It was also the first time we have lost at home having scored four goals.

The only comparable instance was a 5-7 defeat at Middlesbrough on February 13, 1915.

The last Spurs game to yield nine goals was the 7-2 Premiership win over Southampton on March 11, 2000. In all, there have now been 21 of our matches in the Football/Premier League to feature nine or more goals, 15 at home and six away.

We have been involved in two 5-5 scorelines, both at home in the old first division, March 19, 1966 v Aston Villa & September 19, 1925 v Huddersfield Town.
