Comments:

League position: 2nd Tottenham Hotspur had now won 12 of their last 14 games in the Premier League. They had now scored five or more goals in consecutive games for the first time since the last two games of the 2016-17 Premier League season. Tottenham Hotspur had now scored three or goals in the first-half of consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time. Liverpool were the last team to do so in November 2016. Three teams had previously won 15 or more games in the first half of a Premier League season in this decade (Manchester United in 2012-13, Chelsea in 2016-17 and Manchester City in 2017-18) and all three won the title. Two teams had now won 15 of their first 19 games of this Premier League season; leaders Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs had now won 27 games in the Premier League in 2018. They had only won more top division games in one year (31 in 1960). They had now set a new competition record of 19 games without a draw from the start of a Premier League season. The previous record of 18 was set by Bolton Wanderers in 2011-12. Spurs remained unbeaten in their 11 home games in the Premier League on Boxing Day (won eight). Harry Kane had now scored seven goals in six Premier League appearances against AFC Bournemouth.

Comments:

League position: 11th AFC Bournemouth had now equalled their club record of four consecutive away defeats. This was their biggest defeat since a 6-1 loss at Watford in the League Championship on 10 August 2013. The Cherries had now kept one clean sheet in their last 11 league and cup games. Their only win in their last eight away games on Boxing Day was at Cheltenham Town in League Two in 2009.
