Image for Tottenham Hotspur: Fans flock as post-Leeds game stat emerges

A lot of Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts at a statistic to emerge following their Premier League victory against Leeds United. 

Spurs entered the half-time break trailing to Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites with Daniel James opening the scoring, however, a turnaround in the second 45 minutes saw Spurs prevail and snatch all three points.

Will Conte win Spurs a trophy?





And after the game, journalist Charlie Eccleshare revealed Spurs had outrun Bielsa’s side with a combined 112km to Leeds’ 108km.

And Spurs fans flocked to the tweet from The Athletic journalist to share their amazement at the claim Spurs had outrun a Bielsa side.

What did these Spurs fans have to say?

“The Conte effect. Can’t imagine many teams outrun Beilsa’s side.”

“Something is going on behind the scenes”
“This is massive – a big part of the problem with Nuno and even the first half”

Spurs came out from half-time looking like a different side as the Lilywhites outran Leeds by 3.7km in the second half of the game alone.

Before the game, Sergio Reguilon spoke of how difficult the international break was under Conte with the Italian working on the players’ fitness levels but it seems to have worked wonders.

It is apparent these fans are stunned by Eccleshare’s claim and it is understandable given Bielsa sides are known for their fitness and ability to outrun the opposition.

    There is absolutely no question that another striker as in Vlahovic is desperately needed, De Ligt would be a fantastic bit of business at the back and Frank Kessie in the middle would firm things up somewhat. Now whether Levy backs Conte to that degree remains to be seen, but there is absolutely no point whatsoever bringing in Conte if we aren’t going to back him fully in the transfer market.
