Comments:

League position: 2nd Tottenham Hotspur now had 58 points from their 30 Premier League games in 2015-16. It was their highest tally at this stage of a season since 1984-85 in League Division One when they had 60 points and went on to finish in 3rd position. Harry Kane had now scored 40 goals in the Premier League since the start of the 2014-15 season. Only Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (42) had scored more in the same period. [c/o Sky Sports Statto]
