For the second successive season, Tottenham thrashed Stoke City 4-0 at the Britannia Stadium after an excellent away performance.
Heung-Min Son scored either side of half time: his first a left-footed finish from Christian Eriksen’s low cross; his second a wonderful curling effort.
Dele Alli grabbed a third for Spurs to rub salt into Stoke’s wounds before Harry Kane netted his first goal of the season with a close-range finish.

Eriksen main man today. Funny what a contract extension can do to ur confidence. Pleased with his performance, need him in the future.#THFC

FT: 0-4. 1st 10-15 mins aside, that was a powerful display from #thfc. Alli excellent; some of the football on the break was devastating.

Much better from Spurs, signs of last-season’s rhythm and purpose. Stoke were awful, mind. Early days for both

Well that was all kinds of lovely. Spurs clicked into gear against a poor Stoke team. Good performances all round, and some lovely goals.

Son was a class above the rest today – the best I’ve seen of him at #thfc. Big season for him as I’ve said. He’s unplayable when in form.
