Gary Neville has labelled Tottenham “wonderful” after Saturday’s impressive victory over Chelsea at Wembley.

Spurs put in their most convincing performances of the season so far, jumping above their London rivals in the table with a 3-1 win thanks to goals from Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son.

Christian Eriksen ran the show in behind the three goal scorers, and Neville believes Tottenham’s attacking quartet make Mauricio Pochettino’s side difficult to deal with.

“It was interesting watching Chelsea. They’re a wonderful team to watch, Tottenham, when it happens like that for them,” Neville said (via Sky Sports).

“When you have Harry Kane as a focal point, and then you have those players – Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Heung-Min Son around them – you haven’t got a clue where they’re going to turn up next. The energy in the team, the runs forward, it just knits.”

Alli opened the scoring by heading in a wonderful Eriksen delivery before Kane made it 2-0 with a deceptive strike from distance.

After missing a number of opportunities in the first half, Son scored a stunning individual goal to seal the points after the break.

Olivier Giroud pulled one back late on for the visitors, but the Spurs attack had already done the damage.

Their ability to interchange and swap positions makes them unique among Europe’s best attacking groups, who usually line up more rigidly.

With Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura also available to Pochettino, Tottenham have plenty of depth in the those positions, which should prove crucial with the games coming thick and fast.

Spurs face Inter Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday before a Premier League north London derby against Arsenal at the Emirates this weekend.
