Tottenham’s ability to win games late on this season has been well documented but an interesting stat had emerged that puts their achievements in a historical context.
Sky have produced a graphic showing the most amount of points won by teams within the last ten minutes of games, dating back over the past four seasons. It shows that this current Spurs side are amongst the best there’s been in recent seasons.
The sides who took the most points have been Arsenal in 2011-12 and Everton 2013-14. They both managed to win 15 points within the last ten minutes of games over the course of a season, but Tottenham have already managed 11 after just 22 games.
It goes to show that the never say die attitude and general fitness of this Spurs team under Mauricio Pochettino is truly something special.
