Tottenham Hotspur may be about to break an incredible 125 year record after enjoying a run of 4 consecutive away victories in the Premier League, as reported by Football.London.
Saturday’s stupendous 3-0 win at Goodison Park ensured that Tottenham Hotspur’s sensational away form continues to thrive, with Spurs yet to concede a goal on their travels this season.
Spurs opened their 2017-18 season with a comfortable 2-0 win at St James’ Park, whereas last season, Tottenham saw out their Premier League campaign with a bang, demolishing both Leicester City and Hull City away from home 6-1 and 7-1 respectively.
Combined, these results mean that Tottenham’s last 4 away games have produced a jaw-dropping goal difference of +16, a figure unrivaled by any English club since 1892’s Sunderland side.
At the back-end of their 1891-92 season, Sunderland battered Darwen 7-1 on the road, while finishing their campaign with a 2-1 victory at Burnley.
The following 1892-93 season began with a run of 7 wins in 8 matches for the Black Cats, featuring a 6-0 win against Accrington, a 6-1 victory over Aston Villa and a 4-1 triumph over Everton, all on their travels.
Having produced an away goal difference of +21 in 5 outings, the North-Eastern outfit have never been eclipsed in their lethal away-day form shown by any other team in the 125 years since, according to Football.London.
Tottenham Hotspur are now on the brink of matching or even breaking that record with a trip to West Ham looming large on the horizon.
Spurs will be out for some revenge over struggling West Ham, given that the Hammers have managed to beat the North-London side in their two previous visits to their London rivals.
Twice in successive seasons now West Ham have put a considerable dent in Tottenham’s title challenge and a 5 or 6-0 win at the London Stadium would be the perfect way for Spurs to claim their vengeance and break this ancient goal-scoring record.
