After Timo Werner’s close-range finish from Brennan Johnson’s low cross in the second half, Spurs had already stretched their goalscoring streak to 38 Premier League games, or the length of a season. Before Tottenham broke yet another record, goals from vice-captain Cristian Romero and then captain Son Heung-min completed the victory.

The North London team broke their record for the most passes made in a Premier League game when they completed 732 against Palace. The visitors could only muster 158 in response, as Tottenham dominated possession, holding the ball for 78% of the game overall and 82% of it in the first half.

In the rematch, Romero set the record for most passes made by a Spurs player in a Premier League game with a 2-1 victory at Selhurst Park in October. Now, the Argentine and his teammates have collaborated to beat their team record. This time, Tottenham sprayed the ball around until eventually finding a way through, with Romero accounting for 124 of the passes, Yves Bissouma for 115, and Micky van de Ven for 100.

Next weekend, Ange Postecoglou’s team will play a crucial match against Unai Emery’s team, Aston Villa, who is five points ahead of Spurs despite having played one more game. Tottenham will attempt to control the ball for the majority of the game once more, but Villa’s skill and quickness on the counterattack will force them to use their advantage.
