Tottenham Hotspur rounded off their pre-Christmas schedule in the perfect way last night, smashing home six goals at Goodison Park.

Everton took the lead early in the game, but Spurs rallied back to win the match 6-2.

Braces from both Harry Kane and Heung Min Son, as well as goals from Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli completed a thorough battering of their Merseyside opponents.

With Chelsea losing to Leicester this weekend, Spurs propelled themselves further away from their top four rivals.

They also closed the gap to last year’s champions Manchester City to just two points after they fell to a surprise defeat at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.

This was perhaps Tottenham’s most impressive win of the season so far, as for the first time they actually put away the majority of their chances when controlling a game.

The three points also represented the first won by the club from a losing position this year, but Tottenham have still yet to draw a game.

Poch said (Football London): “It was a very good performance. I am so pleased and I’m very proud of the performance and the energy we showed today. I am very pleased about the result, but, of course, the performance is the first.

“We deserve complete the result, a very important three points to start a very busy period of four games in 10 days. It’s always important to start that period of games with that type of performance and result.”
