What feat has Harry Kane managed with his two goals against West Ham?

Another fine afternoon for Tottenham, as seen through the eyes of Opta and Stats Zone...

Tottenham extended their unbeaten Premier League run to 12 matches with a resounding 4-1 win over London rivals West Ham at White Hart Lane.

The victory lifts Mauricio Pochettino's side to within two points of fourth-placed Arsenal, and four behind leaders Leicester ahead of next weekend's home tussle against Chelsea. 

This was a game Spurs never looked like losing. They controlled possesion from the off and took a quick two-goal lead inside 33 minutes after Harry Kane took advantage of Dele Alli's blocked effort, and then Toby Alderweireld headed home from Christian Eriksen's corner. 

Kane grabbed a second five minutes after half-time following James Tomkins' gifting of possession to Eriksen for assist No.2, before right-back Kyle Walker made sure of a comfortable win when he finished off a one-two with Son Heung-min with an excellent outside-of-the-boot finish past Adrian. 

The Spurs goalscorer was humbled for West Ham's consolation goal, however, getting beaten by Manuel Lanzini's stepover before the Argentine lashed in to deny Pochettino's side a clean sheet.
