Tottenham put in their most complete performance of the season as they thrashed West Brom 4-0 at White Hart Lane, moving up to second in the Premier League in the process.
Harry Kane scored a hat-trick in a display of strength, style and clinical finishing. If not for the striker’s goalscoring exploits, it would be difficult to name a man of the match.
Spurs Twitter was understandably thrilled. Here are the best of the tweets.

Forget the title race, the narrative, the rival teams and their bitchy executives: this performance was a masterpiece, in glorious isolation

Fantastic performance from 0-90. Hat-trick for H, Eriksen imperious and solid at the back too. Into 2nd. Over to you, rivals! #COYS

That first half performance from Spurs one of the best 45 mins I've seen in a long while. Dembele & Eriksen ??? pic.twitter.com/WdUdjgpvA5

A mouth watering dominant performance which sends our another strong signal to the Premier League. A superb display. A pleasure to be here.

If you're still saying Spurs are under the radar, you're not paying attention. Odds still against them, but form is excellent.

Not much more to say about Harry Kane. A delight to watch and I'm sure to play with too judging by the options he gives for team-mates #THFC
