We hit four goals for the seventh time in the Premier League this season as we produced another dominant performance to blow away Watford at White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.
Excellent first half goals from Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Heung-Min Son put us in a commanding position at half-time, with Son adding a fourth goal in the 55th minute to take us to within four points of league leaders Chelsea ahead of their game against Bournemouth later in the day.
It was our 11th successive home win in the top flight – equalling our third best-ever run and something we haven’t done since 1922 – while it also marked our sixth straight win in the division, matching our Premier League best.
It all started in the 33rd minute when Dele broke the deadlock with a magnificent curling strike from 28 yards, capping off a move which started inside our own six yard box!
Six minutes later we doubled our lead with another great goal as Dier cracked home a controlled drive from 20 yards, before Son rounded off a superb first-half team display when he curled in from a similar distance a minute before the interval, his 10th Premier League goal of the campaign.
The South Korean forward added his 11th in the second half when he volleyed home Kieran Trippier’s cross at the back post to make it 4-0. There was more good news just after the hour mark as Harry Kane came off the bench to make his return from injury and he hit the bar with the last kick of the game, capping off another great afternoon in glorious sunshine at the Lane!
