Tweet @SkyFootball using the hashtag #TylersTeasersMartins starting statsPep Guardiolas 11-game unbeaten start at Manchester City came to an end live on Sky Sports on Sunday against Tottenham. Pep missed the chance to beat Carlo Ancelottis record when he won his first six Premier League games at Chelsea. Ancelotti lost his seventh at Wigan in 2009, but his side went on to win the league.Spurs have only conceded three goals in the Premier League this season - all to Englishmen from set pieces (Ross Barkleys free-kick for Everton, James Milners penalty for Liverpool and Ben Gibsons header from a free-kick for Middlesbrough).This is Tottenhams best start since 1960/61 when they won their first 11 games and went on to win the double. The first game they didnt win in 1960 was the home fixture with Man City (a 1-1 draw in their 12th game).Hugo Lloris enjoyed his first shutout against Man City in eight attempts. Dele Alli improved his record against Manchester City to played three, won three, while Nicolas Otamendi has three defeats from three starts against Spurs.Aleksandar Kolarov made his Manchester City debut at White Hart Lane in August 2010 and sustained a knee injury - and he made an unhappy return with an own goal on Sunday.Mauricio Pochettino enjoyed his second win over Guardiola in 10 meetings. He also won away as Espanyol boss against Barcelona in February 2009. His overall record is now: P10 W2 D3 L5.Spurs now have four consecutive away games after the international break against West Brom, Bayer Leverkusen, Bournemouth and Liverpool in the EFL Cup, live on Sky Sports. Their next home game is against Leicester on October 29 - but at least they have happy memories for the 27 days between home games.Man Utds shooting strifeHave Manchester United ever had as many shots as they did against Stoke without winning in the PL? Lawrence C Paul Pogba missed a host of chances for Manchester United against Stoke MARTIN SAYS: Manchester United had 24 shots on Sunday (but only nine on target) and failed to win thanks to Joe Allens late equaliser for Stoke, but they have had far more shots in a game than 24 without managing to win.In April 2006, United registered an almighty 36 shots against Sunderland at Old Trafford, but failed to even score a goal as they drew 0-0. FT Manchester Utd 1-1 Stoke A year earlier in May 2005, Sir Alex Fergusons side managed 33 shots against West Brom but were held to a 1-1 draw, and they managed 31 in a 1-1 draw under David Moyes against Fulham in 2014.In May 2007, United managed 30 shots against West Ham as they were beaten 1-0 on the final day of the season in that famous game which saw Carlos Tevez score the winner and keep his side in the Premier League, while in November 2011 the Red Devils managed 28 shots at home against Newcastle but could only draw 1-1.Slow startsStoke and Sunderland have failed to win any of their opening seven games. Has any team ever done the same (or gone longer) and stayed up in the Premier League? Ike Jones David Moyes Sunderland have failed to win in their first seven games MARTIN SAYS: Yes! Derby have the record in this respect for a 20-team Premier League season. In 2000/01, they failed to win any of their opening 13 games of the season (drew seven, lost six), but somehow managed to recover to keep themselves in the Premier League (by the skin of their teeth, finishing 17th). Blackburn drew four and lost seven of their first 11 games in 1996/97 but recovered to finish 13th and Southampton got just two points from their first nine games in 1998/99 but still managed to finish the campaign in 17th. Sunderland 1-1 West Brom Sunderland have become experts in recent years at recovering from dismal starts to survive in the Premier League. Last season the Black Cats failed to win any of their first nine, and in 2013/14 they failed to win any of their first eight games.Southampton (1996/97), Newcastle (1999/00 and 2014/15), West Brom (2004/05) and Norwich (2012/13) have all failed to win in their first seven games but still avoided relegation.So the omens are not too bad for fans of Stoke and Sunderland, especially as Blackburn (11 games) and Southampton (seven games) both managed to do it in the same season in 1996/97.

Is that the longest gap in between starts for one club? Oliver B Victor Moses holds off Sam Clucas during Chelseas win at Hull MARTIN SAYS: The boffins at Opta have told us that Victor Moses previous start in the Premier League for Chelsea came 1,239 days ago in a 2-1 win away at Aston Villa.However, theyve also told us thats only the 46th longest wait between starts for one Premier League club.The longest wait was almost a decade and belongs to Joe Cole. He started for West Ham in a 2-2 draw away at Birmingham on May 11, 2003 and they were relegated that day. His next Premier League start for the club came 3,534 days later on January 12, 2013 in a 3-0 defeat at Sunderland. In between he played for Chelsea and Liverpool in the Premier League (Moses played for Liverpool, Stoke and West Ham). Hull 0-2 Chelsea Goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek went 3,349 days between starts for Newcastle between 1997 and 2006, while Julian Speroni waited 3,256 days between Premier League appearances for Crystal Palace without leaving the club.The goalkeeper started a 2-1 defeat against Manchester City on September 18, 2004 but Palace were relegated at the end of that season. His next appearance came 3,256 days later against Tottenham on August 18, 2013 when they returned to the top flight.Most days between Premier League starts for a single club:Joe Cole - West Ham (3,534)Pavel Srnicek - Newcastle (3,349)Julian Speroni - Crystal Palace (3,256)Lee Clark - Newcastle (3,057)Stephane Henchoz - Blackburn (2,748)Stewart Downing - Middlesbrough (2,646)Dougie Freedman - Crystal Palace (2,520)Adam Drury - Norwich (2,417)Tommy Smith - Watford (2,309)Speedy subsHas there ever been a faster goal by a substitute than Josh Kings? Abdullah Josh King scored 44 seconds after coming onto the pitch MARTIN SAYS: While Kings goal off the bench for Bournemouth against Watford came in remarkably speedy fashion in 44 seconds, its just the 25th fastest goal by a substitute in the Premier League since Optas records started in 2006/07.Sammy Ameobi currently holds the record, and its one will take an awful lot to be beaten, having netted just eight seconds after coming off the bench for Newcastle in October 2014. Watford 2-2 Bournemouth The winger was introduced at half-time at Tottenham, and stuck home an equaliser within mere moments of the restart as they came from behind to win 2-1 at White Hart Lane.Antoine Sibierski tucked one away in a far more pedestrian 15 seconds after coming off the bench for Wigan against Derby in January 2008, while Andy Johnson scored just 17 seconds after entering the fray for Fulham against Wolves in April 2011.It was great for Eddie Howe to make a change and reap the dividends so quickly - and Im sure Alan Pardew would have felt the same when Ameobi scored. He did well to get out for the second half quickly enough to see it.

Young had 29 points while Pau Gasol added 22 to lead the short-handed Lakers to a 112-106 win at the Air Canada Centre, halting Torontos six-game home win streak. Los Angeles (16-25) used an attacking style to rally from deficits of 19 and 17 points and earn its second straight road victory but just its third in 15 games overall. "We didnt get defence into the game," Toronto coach Dwane Casey said. "We played their game . . . it was pretty but we didnt get defence into the game. "That allowed those big runs and thats not who we are. We have to be a defence-first team, not a three-point shooting team . . . we got caught up in their quick threes, which were not very good at." The Lakers hit 12-of-22 (54.5 per cent) three-pointers but also made 26-of-28 free throws. Toronto finished 9 of 30 (30 per cent) from beyond the arc and held a 47-31 edge in rebounding but only attempted 11 free throws, making nine. "That tells us either were not getting the calls or were not driving to the rim," Casey said. "They were the aggressor going to the basket. We had some bonehead fouls on some three-point shots, thats something you shouldnt do. "But it starts on the defensive end. We didnt get up into people and when we did react we reacted late and subsequently you get fouls called." DeMar DeRozan had 23 points while Kyle Lowry added 21 for Toronto (20-19), which lost the chance for its first-ever season sweep of the Lakers. The Raptors won the first meeting 106-94 on Dec. 8. Kyle Lowry added 21 points for Toronto while Patrick Patterson added 17 points coming off the bench. Lowrys three-pointer pulled Toronto to within 102-101 with just over two minutes remaining. Ryan Kellys three free throws made it 105-101 before Youngs three-pointer put the Lakers ahead 108-103 with 1:15 left. Youngs two free throws with 20.5 seconds made it 110-104 and effectively cemented the win. Kelly said Young was a difference-maker for the Lakers. "The one thing Nick does is score, especially at the end of clocks," said Kelly, who finished with 17 points. "There are not many people in the league who can do what he does. "We have seven seconds on the clock and you get Nick the ball and he finds a way to get a shot or get to the line . . . we need that." The Lakers were without all-stars Steve Nash of Victoria and Kobe Bryant. Nash, a two-time NBA MVP, is out with a back injury while Bryant, a five-time league champion and Los Angeless all-time scoring leader, is sidelined with a fractured left knee. "After not feeling it in the first half, we just got a bit more aggressive on defence and they felt us," Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said. "You have to give them credit, they hit a lot of good shots to start with but our guys somehow found the resolve to stay into themm and it worked out.dddddddddddd" The Lakers improved to 27-8 all-time against Toronto, including 13-5 at the ACC. "Weve got to understand no matter now big the lead is no team is going to lay down," DeRozan said. "Theyre going to play extremely hard to try and get back and weve got to understand that and withstand the runs theyre trying to make. We didnt do that. "We gave up too many threes. We know theyre a three-point shooting team and we left them in their comfort zone and they knocked them down." Lowery couldnt hide his disappointment about Torontos inability to twice put the Lakers away after surging into commanding double-digit leads. "Yeah, it sucks," he said. "They did a good job of playing the way they wanted and making us play that way also. "They attacked us a lot more. We settled for a lot more jumpshots and we didnt attack as much as we couldve to get to the free-throw line as much as they did." L.A. took an 82-81 lead into the fourth, thanks to three Young free throws with 27.3 seconds left. Young converted a technical on Terrence Ross, then hit two-of-three from the line after being fouled by Ross on a three-point shot. The resilient Lakers overcame a 17-point deficit to take the lead. Toronto opened the third on a 14-2 run to go ahead 73-56 but the Lakers tied it 79-79 on Manny Harriss three-pointer with under three minutes remaining after both Kendall Marshall and Young connected from beyond the arc. Gasols two free throws with 3.4 seconds remaining cut Torontos half-time advantage to 58-54. The Raptors surged into a commanding 50-31 lead in the quarter before being outscored by the Lakers 23-8 the rest of the way. DeRozan was a one-man show for Toronto, scoring 12 of his 16 first-half points in the second. The Raptors were 5 of 16 (31.3 per cent) from three-point range in the half while L.A. was 6-of-10. Toronto led 36-29 after the first, erasing a 24-20 deficit by outscoring L.A. 16-5 over the final 2:58. Patterson led the way for the Raptors with eight points, including two three-pointers as the home team hit on 14-of-19 field goals and 5-of-6 three-pointers in the quarter. Gasol played a big part in leading the Lakers to their early lead with 10 points.
