Former Tottenham midfielder’s Nabil Bentaleb, Nacer Chadli, Ryan Mason and Gylfi Sigurdsson all scored on Saturday – and Spurs fans took to Twitter to comment on the bizarre stat.
Sigurdsson, now at Swansea scored as his side lost 3-2 to Spurs’ rivals Arsenal, while Chadli managed to score against his old side in a 1-1 draw between Tottenham and West Brom.
Meanwhile, Mason managed a consolation goal as his Hull side suffered a humiliating 6-1 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth and the out on loan Bentaleb scored the opening goal as his Schalke side drew 1-1 with Augsburg.
Current Spurs midfielder Dele Alli bagged a late equaliser for Mauricio Pochettino’s men in the draw at the Hawthorns.
Many Tottenham supporters took to social media to comment on their former players scoring on the same day, while one said “you couldn’t write it”.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:

Bentaleb, Chadli and Mason all left White Hart Lane in the summer, although the Algeria international left on a season-long loan deal.
However, Tottenham have not missed their midfielder’s with the north London club remaining the only unbeaten side in the Premier League.
They now sit in third place with 18 points from their first eight fixtures in the league.
In other Tottenham news, fans reacted on Twitter to Chadli’s performance against his former side.
