Tottenham set unwanted record after poor first-half vs Leeds

Tottenham set unwanted record after poor first-half vs Leeds

Tottenham vs Leeds

Tottenham and Leeds United are currently locked in Premier League action in north London.

Spurs headed into the game no doubt confident of picking up their first Premier League win under Antonio Conte.

Leeds are enduring a torrid 2021/22 campaign, which has been filled with personnel issues – including two new absentees on Sunday – and that saw the Whites begin Sunday just two points above the relegation zone.

However, upon the whistle sounding for half-time this evening, it was Marcelo Bielsa’s men who held the advantage.

Jack Harrison made light work of Emerson Royal before firing a cross into the Spurs box, which Daniel James guided past Hugo Lloris:

Tottenham set unwanted record

And now, following what proved a dire first 45 for the Lilywhites, in which they created very little, a rather concerning statistic has emerged.

Opta are one of the leading statisticians in the world of football, and have been collecting data on the Premier League since the 2003/04 season.

In turn, after Spurs failed to force Illan Meslier into a single save during the first-half against Leeds, Opta revealed that the capital giants are the first team to go six straight halves of football in the Premier League without managing a single shot on target since such data was first collected back in 2003:

Tottenham are the first team since Opta have Premier League shot data (from 2003-04) to go six straight halves of play in the competition without managing a single shot on target (2nd half v West Ham, both halves v Man Utd & Everton, 1st half v Leeds today).
