Remember: Tony Pulis didn’t rate Serge Gnabry.
The winger, who had a forgettable loan spell with West Bromwich Albion during the 2015-16 season, scored four goals as Bayern Munich romped to a 7-2 evisceration of Tottenham Hotspur in Tuesday’s Champions League action.
Here are the craziest statistics from the north London leveling:
1 – Tottenham are the first English outfit to concede seven goals in a European competition since … Tottenham. In July 1995, Gerry Francis’ Spurs lost 8-0 to FC Koln in the UEFA Intertoto Cup.
2 – Gnabry is the second German to score four or more goals in a Champions League match, following in the sizable footsteps of Mario Gomez (versus FC Basel in March 2012).
4 – In one match, Gnabry moved level with Harry Kane for goals at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Spurs began playing at their new home in April 2019.
5 – Spurs suffered the greatest margin of defeat by an English club playing at home in any European competition.
62.5% – Dele Alli had the least success with his passing out of Tuesday’s 22 starters, although he did force a turnover for Heung-Min Son’s goal.
100% – The excellent Joshua Kimmich’s accuracy with his 14 long balls.
2015 – The last time a player scored four goals in a single Champions League game (Cristiano Ronaldo versus Malmo in December 2015). Gnabry is in esteemed company.
