Tottenham face Liverpool next at Anfield, not a happy hunting ground

Spurs average shots per game is 17.5, the highest in the Premier League

  1. SPURS 17.5
  2. Liverpool 17.04
  3. Manchester United 16.04
  4. Manchester City 15.88
  5. Arsenal 15.375
  6. Chelsea 14.2

Spurs average shots conceded per game 9.08, the 4th best in the Premier League.

  1. Liverpool 7.63
  2. Manchester City 7.96
  3. Chelsea 8.46
  4. SPURS 9.08
  5. Manchester United 10.16
  6. Southampton 10.25
  7. Arsenal 10.48

Tottenham have conceded 16 goals, Chelsea 17, Manchester United 21, Arsenal 28, Manchester City 29, Liverpool 30.

We sit second in the Premier League table thanks to our defence rather than our attack. Defensively we are top of the table. We have conceded the fewest goals although Chelsea have had two more clean sheets than us while attacking wise, we sit fifth in the table behind Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City.

This may be because of our slow start to the season when we had no choice but to throw new Dutch signing Vincent Jansen in at the deep end because of the injury to Harry Kane. With other injuries we struggled to score goals but have been making up for it since.

75% of our games have two or more goals while 54% have three or more goals. Both home and away our games average 2.58 goals per game.
