Tottenham Hotspur secured their 11th consecutive home win and tightened their grip on a Champions League place thanks to a 4-0 demolition of Watford at White Hart Lane on Saturday.
First-half goals from Dele Alli, Eric Dier and a brace from Son Heung-min either side of the break completed the perfect afternoon for Spurs – which saw star-striker Harry Kane make his return to first-team football following a three game absence due to an ankle ligament injury picked up last month.
The successful afternoon was topped off as the North London outfit became the first team in the Premier League this season to have three different players reach double figures in front of goal – further confirming the depth that Mauricio Pochettino’s side have.
Son’s double took the South Korean’s tally to 11 league goals in 27 appearances this campaign – netting once every 139 minutes on average.
Following the 24-year-old’s attacking masterclass performance, Tottenham fans were quick to praise their star utilitarian and took to Twitter to share their delight.
Here are some of the best tweets:
