Spurs win gets landslide victory for best home performance
Over the past few days, we asked you to vote for the home performance you thought was the best in the 2018/19 season and we were left in no doubt after the 2-1 win against Spurs won convincingly.
It was the last game in our run of eight Premier League games without defeat and the 2-1 win saw all three goals scored in the second half. Chris Wood gave us the lead, heading home a right wing corner but we had to go again after Harry Kane equalised after being set up by fourth official Craig Pawson’s quick throw to Danny Rose.
We’d held the lead for just eight minutes but we really stepped things up after that and fully deserved the winner seven minutes from time when Ashley Barnes was in the right place to score past Hugo Lloris after latching on to a ball from Jόhann Berg Guðmundsson.
The win lifted us to 13th in the table and it won a staggering 71% of the vote. Only the 2-0 win against West Ham, the first in that run of unbeaten games, was able to get over double figures. Wood scored in that match too as did Dwight McNeil, his first for the Clarets. The West Ham win secured a 12% share with the Bournemouth and Wolves victories the only other two to win more than 1% of the vote.
