It was a day for the home-grown players at White Hart Lane. A brace from Harry Kane and a late Tom Carroll strike resulted in a 3-0 win for Tottenham against lowly Norwich.
Kane opened the scoring from the spot before adding a second with a fine low effort before the break. The striker has now scored 12 goals in his last 11 Spurs appearances.
Tom Carroll replaced Christian Eriksen in the second half and smashed home his first league goal for Tottenham with 10 minutes remaining.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result and performance.
We're actually quite good #coys

Job done. Not spectacular but very solid and efficient performance. 2 for Kane, Hugo clean sheet and now to recuperate pre-Watford.

Say whatever you want about Lamela, but his work-rate is unquestionable, for that alone he deserves his place in the XI every week. #THFC

Spurs have the joint-best defensive record in the Premier League with just 14 goals conceded this season. #COYS

Another brilliant, professional performance. Now on to Watford, which is going to be a tough match. #COYS

Norwich started well but thought Lamela's pressing after 15 minutes encouraged the others out of their post xmas slumber.

Joint-top goal difference in the league (+17, with Arsenal & City). This is weird.

Pleasing second half performance by Spurs. Work rate and bite. And a clean sheet to boot. There's your Christmas sparkle #Coys

Excellent result today which consolidates our place in the top 4. Kane on fire. Lamela superb again as was Dembele. Monday will be tough!
