Tottenham Hotspur continued their impressive start to the Premier League season with a hard earned 1-0 victory against Burnley at Wembley Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino has won his 100th Premier League game as Spurs manager in his 169th game – 10 games quicker than it took Arsene Wenger to reach the figure at Arsenal

None of Tottenham’s last 21 Premier League games have ended level, with Spurs winning 16 and losing five since a 1-1 at Brighton in April.

Only Bolton in 2011-12 (18) have had a longer run without a draw from the start of a Premier League campaign than Spurs this season (17).

Burnley failed to register a single shot on target in this match. It’s the third time they’ve done so in the Premier League this season – no other side has done so more than once.

Erik Lamela had 47% of Tottenham’s shots in this match (7/15) and 67% of their shots on target (2/3).

Aged 18 years and 36 days, Oliver Skipp is the fourth youngest ever player to make his first Premier League start for Tottenham Hotspur, after Stephen Carr (17y 28d), Andy Turner (17y 146d) and Philip Ifil (17y 270d).
