Comments:

League position: 5th Christian Erikson's goal was timed at 10.48 seconds to become recognised as the third fastest in the history of the Premier League. The fastest-ever goal in the competition was scored after 9.9 seconds by Tottenham Hotspur’s Ledley King at Bradford City on 9 December 2000. Alan Shearer scored the next fastest goal after 10.4 seconds for Newcastle United against Manchester City on 18 January 2003. Christian Eriksen's goal was his 50th for Spurs. Since he signed in August 2013, only Harry Kane (128) had now scored more for the club. Phil Jones' own goal was the third OG that Tottenham Hotspur had benefited from in the Premier League so far in this season; more than any other team.

Comments:

League position: 2nd Manchester United had been unbeaten in their preceding eight games in the Premier League and taken 16 points from their preceding six away games. This defeat ended Paul Pogba's 36-game and 458 day unbeaten run as a Premier League player (won 23). United had won on each of their preceding six games at Wembley Stadium, scoring at least two goals in each game. Their last defeat at the venue was in the 2011 UEFA Champions League Final against Barcelona.
