Spurs 3-0 Norwich – the numbers
Mon 06 December 2021, 16:19|Tottenham Hotspur
We produced another commanding performance in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon as we claimed a 3-0 victory over Norwich City.
Having defeated Brentford 2-0 on Thursday night, we picked up where we left off with a truly breathtaking strike from Lucas Moura opening the scoring against the Canaries on 10 minutes. Davinson Sanchez then fired home his first of the season midway through the second half to put us firmly in control before Heung-Min Son wrapped up the points on 77 minutes with his second of the week, having also found the target against the Bees.
Here’s a look at all the key numbers from the game…
So far, so good for Antonio
3 – The victory over Norwich made it three home Premier League wins from three for Antonio Conte - our third manager to do so after Harry Redknapp and Ryan Mason.
9 - Antonio has also followed in the footsteps of all five previous Italian managers to face Norwich in the Premier League by taking victory against the Canaries – he joins Claudio Ranieri (Leicester City), Carlo Ancelotti (Everton), Roberto Di Matteo (Chelsea), Roberto Mancini (Manchester City) and Francesco Guidolin (Swansea City).
4 – Our Head Coach remains unbeaten in the Premier League after his first four games with us – a feat not managed since Tim Sherwood went six unbeaten in the 2013/14 season.
3 – It is now three clean sheets in four league games under the Italian, with just one goal conceded.
