Amazing statistic about headed goals could bode well for the Premier League title challengers


You can hear live and exclusive national radio commentary of the game live on talkSPORT

Tottenham Hotspur could be heading to another Premier League win on Saturday – literally – as they face Burnley – live on talkSPORT.

Spurs claimed their 20th win of the season in their last domestic match as they defeated Leicester City 3-1 at Wembley.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Davinson Sanchez heads home a goal against Leicester.

It was a big win for Mauricio Pochettino’s men as they not only kept chase with Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table but also made sure they kept top four rivals Chelsea, Arsenal, and Manchester United at bay.

The victory was hard fought with the Foxes impressing in north London but it was a headed goal from Davinson Sanchez which got things going before Christian Eriksen and Heung-Min Son added to Spurs’ tally.

It was the Colombian’s first Premier League goal for the club and the team’s 14th strike from a header – a division high.

Their tally is four higher than nearest challengers Bournemouth and Manchester City, while Tottenham’s have come from 10 different players, which is quite the feat.

And on Saturday afternoon they will meet Burnley, a side who have conceded eight headed goals this season – the joint-second amount of any side in the top flight.


  1. Jan Vertonghen vs Newcastle
  2. Dele Alli vs Newcastle
  3. Harry Kane vs Manchester United
  4. Harry Kane vs Huddersfield
  5. Erik Lamela vs West Ham
  6. Lucas Moura vs Wolves
  7. Juan Foyth vs Crystal Palace
  8. Dele Alli vs Chelsea
  9. Eric Dier vs Arsenal
  10. Dele Alli vs Leicester
  11. Dele Alli vs Fulham
  12. Harry Winks vs Fulham
  13. Fernando Llorente vs Watford
  14. Davinson Sanchez vs Leicester

So, as Harry Kane returns to fitness, will Pochettino throw his best forward straight back into the team, or will he opt for the aerial threat of Fernando Llorente, who has three goals and three assists since he came into the first XI?
