Tottenham swept aside Hull 3-0 in the Premier League on Wednesday to get back to winning ways after losing to Manchester United at the weekend.
A brace from the in-form Christian Eriksen and a Victor Wanyama goal comfortably saw off Mike Phelan’s side, as Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs look back to their best after a tricky few weeks.
They lost their unbeaten record to Chelsea on November 26, four days after being knocked out of the Champions League, and then lost 1-0 to United on Sunday, their second successive away league defeat.
Nonetheless, they thumped Swansea 5-0 and beat CSKA Moscow last week to get back to winning ways, and showed glimpses of their very best form against a struggling Hull on Wednesday.
Spurs are fifth in the Premier League having won eight of their 16 league games, and sit just three points behind Manchester City in fourth, and three ahead of Jose Mourinho’s Man United in sixth.
Pochettino’s men host Burnley on Sunday in a bid to keep the pressure on the top four, which would in turn be a fourth successive league win at White Hart Lane.
But, with Christmas fast approaching and the halfway mark almost upon us, we thought we’d take a look back and review Tottenham’s season thus far…
