Erik Lamela did not start the game but received 14 minutes off the bench as Spurs secured its second consecutive victory. The Argentine midfielder had 12 accurate passes, a 70.6-percent pass accuracy, an off-target shot and an accurate long ball. The goals came via Dele Alli, Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane, who scored his second consecutive hat-trick for the North London club. Mauricio Pochettino managed to lead his side to an impressive victory despite being without Victor Wanyama and Toby Alderweireld. The Argentine manager still has his work cut out for him in the title-race as Spurs is 18 points back of Pep Guardiola and Manchester City.
