Terrific Tottenham trio too good for below-par Baggies.
Tottenham Hotspur recorded their biggest away win of the season on Saturday, as a brilliant Christian Eriksen free-kick and a Harry Kane brace saw off West Bromwich Albion 3-0 at the Hawthorns.
Eriksen broke the deadlock on seven minutes, before Kane latched onto a Mousa Dembele pass to double Tottenham’s advantage just before the quarter hour.
Kane then completed the comfortable victory in the second half with a firmly-struck penalty kick.
Here’s how Mauricio Pochettino’s men rated:
GK: Hugo Lloris – 8/10
Lloris had been rested in Tottenham’s three games prior to this clash. However, there were no signs of rustiness. The Frenchman made two superb saves in the first half, keeping out efforts from James Morrison and Claudio Yacob.
RB: Kyle Walker – 7/10
Walker spent much of the match effectively playing as a right winger, such was Tottenham’s possessional dominance. He looked sharp on and off the ball. Based on today’s showing, he is back to full fitness.
LB: Danny Rose – 7.5/10
Confident in possession and solid in defence. Rose won a couple of physical tussles against Saido Berahino. He also made an excellent goal-line clearance.
