Harry Kane led the tributes to our travelling support after the 4-0 win at Stoke.

Over 3,000 made the Monday night trip up the M1/M6 and were rewarded with one of the best performances of the season as we cut Leicester's lead at the top of the Premier League to five points.

The fans certainly made their presence felt, not least the roar as the players headed back down the tunnel after the warm-up.

"The noise was amazing and being right next to the tunnel helped," said Harry, who hit goals one and three. "The fans were incredible, made a lot of noise, full support as always.

"Obviously everyone knows what is riding on these games and the more support we have the better."

The fans were mid-Dele Alli song when he missed from close range but they responded in the same way as the player - their song just got louder, Dele soon volleyed home for 4-0.

"It’s never easy to miss a chance like that and the fans were brilliant, they kept on singing and kept us going and when you miss a chance, you need that," said Dele, who scored goals two and four. "We’ve got a great set of fans and they really drove us on."

The support was highlighted at the end when Jan Vertonghen was interviewed by Spurs TV to a chorus of 'Super, Super Jan'.

"They got us through the first half and really pushed us forward," said Jan. "We have to thank them again and I'm really happy to give this win to them."
