5. Tottenham Hotspur: 450 / 462 / +12
Total for 2018/19: +42
Defeat in the north London derby was a setback but a win against #Southampton
was just the tonic. #Tottenham
for first hour as they peppered Alex McCarthy’s #goal
with shots and cruised to a 3-0 lead. However, they did ease off then and invited pressure from the Saints who bagged a late consolation goal.
A trip to the #King #Power #Stadium
was a potentially tricky one but Spurs navigated it expertly. Harry Kane was rested with the crucial #Barcelona
clash on the horizon but they managed to retain a significant attacking threat without him. Son Heung-min scored with a spanking effort to break the deadlock. The #defence
held firm and #Spurs
always had chances from winning the ball with their high-press, eventually doubling their lead when Son crossed for Dele Alli.
