By the numbers: Best stats from Bayern's blitz at Tottenham

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.
