Fortress White Hart Lane

After avoiding defeat to Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur joined a distinct list of clubs to go an entire league campaign without losing at home.

It was a nice caveat to add to their final season at White Hart Lane, a season which has seen them challenge for the Premier League title yet again – although they have fallen at the end.

There are several obvious teams to go the season unbeaten at home, the likes of Arsenal’s Invincibles and Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea of course make the list but there may be a few you’ve forgotten, including a few which join Spurs as one of the only teams to remain undefeated on home soil yet not win the title.

Only one team can hold the distinction of going unbeaten away from home in the Premier League however, Spurs’ great rivals Arsenal the only club to do so, in both 2001/02 and 2003/04.

Mauricio Pochettino’s biggest challenge comes now, though, with the Lilywhites set to play all home games at Wembley, for the 2017/18 season; a place that has haunted them during the current campaign.

Can they break the hoodoo?

Who was the best side to go undefeated at home? Was it Mourinho’s record breakers from the Bridge or Arsene’s Invincibles? Or maybe one of the others on our list?
