Blades victory seals best start to a league campaign in 58 years

Sun 17 September 2023, 16:00|Tottenham Hotspur

Saturday's 2-1 victory over Sheffield United saw us record our best start to a league campaign since the 1965/66 season.

Having fallen behind in a game we had dominated as Gustavo Hamer fired the Blades in front on 74 minutes, two goals in the final four minutes of 12 added on from Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski saw us turn the game on its head and seal the three points.

That victory saw us continue our unbeaten start to the league season and was our fourth win on the spin in the top flight after an opening weekend draw with Brentford (2-2), seeing us to 13 points from a possible 15.

It is the first time since the start of the 1965/66 campaign that we have recorded four wins and a draw from our opening five games.

Coincidentally, two days after that season began on 25 August, 1965, with a win over Leicester, in Athens, Greece, our Head Coach, Ange Postecoglou, was born.

And interestingly, after those aforementioned opening five games, the next game on the schedule was a league clash with - you guessed it - Arsenal. We drew that match 2-2.
