Dnipro 1-0 Tottenham: Five interesting facts

Andros Townsend

Tottenham went down 1-0 in Ukraine last night.

Here are five interesting facts from the fixture...

1) Kyle Naughton made six successful tackles - that's more than he has done in any game this season for Spurs. The highest was four, made at home to Stoke during the festive period.

2) Etienne Capoue attempted 83 passes during the game. The most he has attempted in any match this season came in his first ever start, against Swansea, 63 in total.

3) Prolific shooter Andros Townsend registered three shots on target. That's a figure he has matched just once this season. This time he did it from four attempts on goal, while when he landed three on target against Norwich in September, it was from nine attempts.

4) Nacer Chadli made three successful key passes against Dnipro. This is a figure he has bettered just once in the Premier League, the second game of the season against Swansea, when he made six key passes.

5) Christian Eriksen made three successful crosses from four attempts when he came on in the second half. The rest of the Spurs team combined made one successful cross from 12 attempts.
