Tottenham Hotspur followed up their dismantling of Everton at the weekend with another complete thrashing of Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth.
A brace from Heung Min Son, as well as goals from Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, and Lucas Moura gave Spurs a healthy 5-0 win.
Here are five things we learned during the game:
Spurs will miss Son-
Heung Min Son has now scored back-to-back braces in the Premier League, with two goals against both Everton and Bournemouth. He has been the in form Tottenham man over the past couple of weeks, but unfortunately Spurs will lose him in January for a period. Son is set to join up with the South Korea squad for the Asia Cup, and will surely be a big miss for Pochettino.
Sharing the love-
The 5-0 win at Wembley was the second thrashing in a row for an in-form Tottenham, but also the second time in a row they have shared the wealth. The 6-2 win against Everton, and the win today both featured four different goal scores during the game. The pressure is no longer on Kane and Kane alone to get the goals for Spurs.
Walker-Peters is over Barca-
Walker-Peters suffered a bit of a horror show in Barcelona in the Champions League last time out. The young man was drafted in due to injuries, and made an error directly leading to Barca’s goal in the first seven minutes. However, that mistake is well behind him, as KWP racked up three assists in the first half of the game today.
Toby needs to sign-
If Spurs only do one piece of business this season, it simply has to be a new Alderweireld contract. Toby started today’s game with three new defenders coming in along side him, and organised them expertly to keep a clean sheet. Everyone knows the quality of this guy, so give him what he want, Levy!
Spurs are title contenders-
Tottenham Hotspur went up to second in the league with their 5-0 win today, overtaking current holders Manchester City as they lost at Leicester. An ambitious and flying Spurs should now be looking up at Liverpool, planning how they can reduce that six point gap.
