Spurs put Mark Hughes’ Stoke to the sword at Wembley this afternoon, as the north London side beat the Potters 5-1 in the Premier League.
Goals from Harry Kane, Heung Min-Son, Christian Eriksen and an own goal from Ryan Shawcross saw the Lilywhites move within a point of fourth placed Liverpool in the race for Champions League qualification.
The win was the fourth time in a row that Spurs had beaten Stoke by four goals or more, an English First Division record.
Tottenham’s South Korean star Son had a fantastic game today, as the winger ran the Stoke defence ragged throughout the entire match.
Here are a few tweets from fans that sum up just how good the Spurs ace was against Stoke this afternoon.
Has to be Heung Min Son. Bossed the game. Best game I've seen him play for us since he joined.

Son replaced by Llorente. Think today proves Son has to be a much more consistent starter for us. Very frustrating sometimes, but always looks like he’ll make something happen. Rarely ever quiet.

2-0 Spurs, Son. Son by far Spurs' best player today

Son with a goal, two assists and was his cross that led to the own goal. #Performance

Heung-Min Son scores his fifth goal in eight games. He's on fire right now. Kane adds another moments later with a header from Ben Davies' cross and Spurs are cruising now. This is more like it.

Son. He’s made himself an automatic pick this season. Inconsistent previously but really reaching new levels now for me
