Leeds win over Tottenham matches Premier League record

Leeds United matched a Premier League record with their win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Stuart Dallas's side gave the hosts a 13th-minute lead but Spurs restored parity through Son Heung-Min in the 25th minute. Patrick Bamford over ensured that the home side went to the break with a 2-1 lead before Rodrigo ensured the points were safe with a third goal six minutes from time.

The win propelled the Premier League newbies to the ninth spot and ensured that no members of the derided 'Big Six' of Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs, and the two Manchester sides, have beaten Bielsa's side at Elland Road.

Leeds-Live reports that it is something that no new promoted side has managed for the last 30 years. In the games against the 'Big Six', Leeds has earned three clean sheets and conceded just three.

Such an outing was last recorded by Birmingham City in the 2009/10 season when they managed a ninth-place finish.
