Tottenham’s rise to the Champions League under Antonio Conte received another huge boost with a hat-trick from Heung-min Son in a 4-0 win over Aston Villa.
January signing Dejan Kulusevski scored the other goal in a dominating win, with the Swede continuing to shine alongside Son and Harry Kane in an unstoppable top three.
Son gave Spurs an early lead when he guided a rebound from Kane inside three minutes, but it was Villa who dominated the first half.
“It was the Hugo Lloris show,” talkSPORT’s Dean Ashton said in a commentary, but Son quickly grabbed the headlines.
Kulusevski doubled Spurs’ lead just after the break and then Son went wild with two more sublime finishes.
“Tottenham on the break just sparkles honestly,” said talkSPORT commentator Dean Ashton. “They’re going to be tough to beat in this form.”
Spurs are now three points clear of Arsenal in the top four race, with the Gunners losing 2-1 to Brighton earlier today.
