Sarr strikes secures joint second-best scoring run in Premier League history

Sat 10 February 2024, 16:30|Tottenham Hotspur

Pape Matar Sarr's second-half equaliser in Saturday's Premier League win over Brighton extended our run of scoring in the top flight to 36 games - the second-longest scoring run in the competition's history.

Making his first start since his return from international duty with Senegal at the Africa Cup of Nations, the midfielder curled home from close range on 61 minutes to cancel out Pascal Gross' 17th-minute opener and to see us make it 36 games on the trot in which we've scored in the Premier League.

Brennan Johnson then struck in the final minute of the clash as we returned to winning ways and moved back into the top four. 

Since a 1-0 defeat to Wolves in March, 2023, we have now scored at least once in every game since with Pape's goal the 36th in that run.

That strike saw us go level with Manchester United (December, 2007, to November, 2008) and Liverpool (March, 2019, to February, 2020) who both scored in 36 consecutive league games across those periods.

Arsenal hold the competition record having scored in 55 games on the trot between May, 2001, and November, 2002.
