Dembele's amazing run of form continues as the Belgian midfielder garnered his third man of the match award in the last four fixtures. Dembele has quitely shifted further back into Spurs midfield, now giving Mauricio Pochettino a much more robust pivot, than the one he ran out with Dele Alli.

Dembele continues to be a calming influence for this Tottenham side and, somehow seems to have lost a bit of his ponderous nature on the ball. He now seems to make decisions a bit more quickly, particularly when breaking up play in the attacking third.

Kane really really wanted his third goal and he went in search of it pretty heavily at the end of the match, but this was still a great game for Kane. Kane's opener, a left-footed effort, in which he turned Carl Jenkinson inside out (and probably ended his career) was about as vintage Kane as you're going to get.

The second goal, was also vintage Kane. A shot from distance, low into the far corner. At the beginning of the season, Kane would have hit this right at the goalkeeper or the goalkeeper would have been positioned perfectly to save it. Now, Kane is back in scoring form and it doesn't look like he'll be stopping anytime soon.

I'm not sure I would have guessed that Toby Alderweireld would be our most important or influential signing of the summer, yet here we are. Toby and Belgian compatriot Jan Vertonghen have played every minute of Premier League football together and that doesn't look to be ending anytime soon.

Despite being the more physical of the two centerbacks, and the one often tasked with marking the opposition's best aerial threat on set pieces, Alderweireld has yet to pick up a card this season. In fact, Toby has only even been whistled for a foul on three occasions this year. For a little context, that the same number as Clinton N'Jie and Nabil Bentaleb, both of whom have played less than 200 minutes of Premier League football.
