Harry Kane, Lucas Moura, Eric Dier and Japhet Tanganga have taken to social media to express their delight after Tottenham brushed Crystal Palace aside on Sunday.
The home side did not have a particularly good start to the game as they struggled to get on the ball and test the Palace backline for the first 20 minutes.
However, they took control of the game midway into the first half and produced two quickfire goals on the counter-attack through Harry Kane and Lucas Moura.
The game was effectively over as a contest when Wilfried Zaha got his marching orders after picking up a second yellow for a push on Davinson Sanchez in the 37th minute.
The second-half resembled a training ground exercise for Antonio Conte’s men, who registered another clean sheet while Son Heung-min put the icing on the cake with a third goal on 74 minutes.
The win took Antonio Conte’s men to fifth in the Premier League table and the likes of Moura and Tanganga praised the all-around performance from the team.

Spurs Web Opinion
With each passing game, it is evident that the players are getting a better understanding of the system. Even though we did not start well against Palace, none of the players panicked and we picked them off clinically when they committed bodies forward. While it is still early days under Conte, it is difficult not to get excited by the team he is building at Spurs.
