Many Spurs fans have taken to Twitter to react to a pre-match stat ahead of their Premier League game against West Ham on Sunday afternoon.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side started off the campaign with three successive 1-o victories, results that initially saw them leap to the table of the table.

Subsequently, it went rapidly downhill for the Lilywhites, losing their next three back-to-back, including conceding three goals in each game as well as losing the north London derby against Arsenal. However, Nuno’s side have managed to win their last two games, a narrow 2-1 win against Aston Villa and a convincing 3-2 victory against St. James Park last week, to rise to fifth place in the table.

Ahead of today’s clash against the Hammers, the BBC (via The Spurs Web) revealed that Spurs can become the first team in history to begin a top-flight season with three wins, three defeats, then three further wins.

Was Nuno a good managerial appoinment?

Yes

Yes

No

No

And, after hearing about that, some Spurs fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts.

What did Spurs fans have to say about it?

“The most Tottenham stat ever, a rollercoaster”

@SecretSergi

“We can. But we probably won’t. And still be further away as ever from moving forward as a club”

@indyboy73

“Proudly adding that to the cabinet”

@N17Rahul

“That’s a jinx”

@anto_thofficial

“History makers”

@Jackalinden

“Going straight in the trophy cabinet. Come onnnnnn”

Although Nuno’s side did lose their midweek Conference League clash to Vitesse Arnhem, the Portuguese may not be too concerned about it having fielded a second-tier side. The manager knows well that a victory over West Ham will send them into the top four on current standings, as they gear up for this epic London derby.

Additionally, considering Santo rested the 11-players for the midweek clash, the manager will have no excuses for fitness or rest issues. The team has to fire themselves into the top-four at all costs, although West Ham also has the same reward if they secure the three points at the London Stadium.
