Tottenham 3 Hull City 0 – the verdict

Tottenham got back to winning ways with a 3-0 win over Hull City in the Premier League on Wednesday night, in arguably the North London club’s best performance of the season.

A brace from Christian Eriksen was followed by a rare Victor Wanyama strike as the White Hart Lane hosts cruised to victory over the newly promoted outfit.

Games that Spurs are expected to win at home can seemingly go one of two ways and it depends on the players’ attitudes.

Like against Hull, if Mauricio Pochettino’s men come out and play at a high tempo and with positivity on the front foot, the team’s class shines through and victories inevitably follow.

However, there has been occasions in the past where the expectancy of victory has seemingly got to the players, the early energy is not present and the game becomes a battle as the opposition’s confidence grows.

The win over Hull should be a blueprint for future home games against ‘lesser’ teams in the Premier League – especially with Burnley at White Hart Lane next up on Sunday.
