Spurs Odyssey Reviews the Premier League Season
for 2016-2017 - Matchday 31

Top of the 2017 Premier League table!

You've all seen the stat regarding Spurs having won more points in the Premier League this year than any other team. It goes without saying then that Spurs are top of the 2017 table after Wednesday night's game at The Liberty Stadium, Swansea. Here thanks to Paul Yarden's excellent THFC6061 Sports Stats site is the 2017 table for matches played so far this year:-

Premier League Table for games played so far in 2017

We all know that it is the table for the season as a whole that counts, but it is a nice picture, isn't it?

Vincent Janssen won the vote for man of the match on the Spurs Official site, but Spurs Odysssey voters have emphatically chosen Christian Eriksen above Dele Alli and Janssen, each of whom had a massive impact on the game. Janssen's clever and skilful turn and ball for Son's goal was a special moment, but so were Eriksen's pass leading up to that goal, and for Dele Alli's equaliser. Eriksen capped his performance with a great piece of skill and finishing for the third goal, having received an excellent infield pass by Dele.

You can see the spursometer in full here.

Apparently, Spurs are the first team in Premier League history to be a goal down in the 88th minute and to win by two clear goals!

That is a remarkable statistic, and I asked our ace statistician Declan Mulcahy to research similar late goal feats by Spurs. Remember, this is not necessarily a complete record, nor is it necessarily a record of favourite turnaround results, but here are Declan's results so far working backwards in time:-

April 2013
Spurs 3 Man City 1
Dempsey 75, Defoe 79, Bale 82 (Nasri 5)

Sep 2010
Spurs 3 Wolves 1
Van der Vaart 77p, Pavlyuchenko 87, Hutton 90 (Fletcher 45)

Huddlestone 80, 99 Defoe 107 (Constantine 64)

April 1999

There were two Everton games in the 90s in quick succession with late winning goals by Andy Turner on a Saturday in September 1992 and Darren Caskey on a Sunday in October 1993.

Sat Sep 5, 1992
Prem Everton (h) 2-1 W
Allen 79, Turner 90, (Beardsley 42)

Sun Oct 3, 1993
Prem Everton (h) 3-2
Sheringham 58, Anderton 88, Caskey 90, (Rideout 15, Cottee 67p)

November 1970
Chelsea 0 Spurs 2
Mullery 89, Pearce 90

Note 90 may mean extra time in a lot of these games.

There are reports on all of the games as far back as 1999 on the Spurs Odyssey web site. Just follow the relevant highlighted links.
