Attendance record offers Spurs good omens

Spurs v Liverpool, Wembley Stadium

Tottenham Hotspur fans have cause for optimism after beating the Premier League attendance record on Sunday

Their victory over Liverpool on Sunday not only moved Tottenham Hotspur behind second-placed Manchester United on goal difference alone, but it also brought them an attendance record.

Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Son Heung-min scored in a 4-1 win, with 80,827 people at Wembley Stadium, comfortably beating the previous attendance record set over 10 years ago at Old Trafford.

That match between Man Utd and Blackburn Rovers on 31 March 2007 drew 76,098 spectators.

Spurs fans seeking omens might be interested to learn that Man Utd also recorded a 4-1 home victory on that day, with the help of two English goalscorers (Paul Scholes and Michael Carrick), and a South Korean (Park Ji-sung).

Man Utd went on to regain the title from Chelsea that season.
