The Incredible 35-Year Record Spurs Can Equal This Weekend Against Burnley

Tottenham are heading for another record this weekend.
Tottenham are heading for another record this weekend.

Though talk is fervent about which destination the 2018/19 Premier League title will eventually take between incumbent champions Manchester City and Liverpool, Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur are doing extremely well to keep themselves in the mix, and don't rule them out christening their new stadium as champions.

If the result of Manchester United and Liverpool at Old Trafford goes their way this latest gameweek, and with City preoccupied by the League Cup Final against Chelsea on Sunday afternoon, Spurs could find themselves just two points off the top after 27 games with a win away at Burnley, with the match taking place at a convenient Saturday lunchtime kickoff.

That’s not the only achievement Spurs will be striving for this weekend.

Their excellent points tally this season currently stands at 65. Tottenham have won 11 Premier League away games across 2018/19, already their most in a single campaign in the competition, meaning that the Lilywhites' total has a 51% point-gain away from ‘home’ (well, Wembley).

Spurs last won more on the road in a single league season in 1984-85 when Peter Shreeves' side romped to 12 victories.

Pochettino can equal that record this weekend, though don’t expect it to be easy.

Burnley - not having tasted defeat in seven games - however currently have an unbeaten league run only bettered by one other team, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s rip roaring Red Devils (on nine without a league loss), and the Clarets haven’t lost at home in four games since the Boxing Day demolishing to Everton.

Turf Moor should be an extremely difficult venue to visit judging by Sean Dyche’s side recent form, and though Spurs didn’t need any added incentive for the win in the final stretch of the Premier League marathon, matching an almost 35-year record certainly provides it.
