The stat many predicted when Ange took control has come to fruition at Tottenham

There have been 84 goals in 23 Tottenham matches, just one less than the 85 scored in Newcastle matches thus far.

With Richarlison's opener at Everton on Saturday, Tottenham broke a record by scoring a goal in 35 consecutive league matches.

Tottenham has 49 goals for and 35 against, while Newcastle - after Saturday's 4-4 slugfest against Luton - has 48 goals for and 37 against. Most people expected Tottenham's new era - once Ange Postecoglou took the helm - to be entertaining and full of chances at either end. With an average of 3.7 goals scored per contest, Ange's first 23 matches have exceeded expectations.

Ange will be thrilled to see his team hovering around the top of the goals-for category but won't be pleased that Spurs have conceded the most goals of the Premier League's top-seven sides. Only Liverpool (52 goals) and Manchester City (51 goals) have scored more. Tottenham is tied with Aston Villa in third with 49 goals.

Tottenham has the most-prolific offence on the road

Surprisingly, Tottenham has more goals on their travels (26 in 12 matches) than at home (23 in 11 games). They are the highest-scoring road side, with City's 24 away goals, albeit in one fewer game, sitting second.

Despite allowing 20 in enemy environs - the most of the top five teams - Spurs boast the top flight's joint-third-best away record. Only Liverpool and City, with 22 points each, have taken more than Spurs' 20. Tottenham's away matches have seen more goals than any other club's, with 46 in 12, an average of 3.8 goals per game.

Scoring hasn't come as easy at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Spurs haven't been nearly as prolific at home, where they've scored the seventh-most (23 goals in 11 games). Ange's side has conceded 15 goals at home, the joint-ninth fewest. Thirty-eight goals have been scored at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, a per-match average of 3.5. Eight teams' home games have seen more than the 38 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Ange, who arrived at the club as advertised, has stamped his offence-first philosophy on Tottenham, which most supporters are chuffed about. Now, the Aussie gaffer will want to shore up his defence so Spurs can become a consistent title threat.
