    PREM TABLE

    As mentioned below, Tottenham's 3-0 win over Leeds means they have climbed up to third place.

    Spurs toppled Everton and Leicester thank to their better goal difference, as all three of them have 29 points.

    But reminding you all that Manchester City, who are currently eighth with 26 points, have two games in hand.

    Nevertheless, the north Londoners will still rejoice for their return to the top four

    RING THE BIEL

    Tottenham's 3-0 win over Leeds means Jose Mourinho remains undefeated against Marcelo Bielsa.

    In fact, Mourinho has beaten Bielsa in all five games they have met throughout the years.

    The Spurs manager prevailed four times over his counterpart in La Liga when he was in charge of Real Madrid and the Argentine was coaching Athletic Bilbao.

    Fun fact, this was the first ever time Mourinho faced Leeds

    OFFICIAL SON-TURION

    As mentioned below, Son Heung-min made history as he scored his 100th goal for Tottenham.

    Son joined Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 and quickly rose through the ranks mainly under former manager Mauricio Pochettino.

    The star forward's historic finish took place in the 43rd minute when he caught Leeds' defence off guard.

    The South Korea international picked up a beautiful pass by Harry Kane and tapped the ball behind the net

    STATS

    Leeds dominated 63.8 per cent of possession throughout the match and still conceded three goals.

    But that was text-book Jose Mourinho as he likes his teams to sit deep, close spaces, wait for a mistake and produce counter-attacks.

    Spurs produced 20 shots, seven of which were on target.

    Leeds, on the other hand, produced 18 shots, five of which were on target.

    But Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris made more saves than Illan Meslier as he prevented danger five times compared to his Leeds counterpart whomade four saves

    FT: TOTTENHAM 3-0 LEEDS

    Tottenham picked up a big win over Leeds, which helped them climb up to third place in the Premier League table.

    The visitors started strong in the first halfas they dominated possession and tempo but still conceded two goals.

    Harry Kane opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 29th minute after Illan Meslier gave the ball away and Steven Bergwijn was fouled by Ezgjan Alioski at the edge of the box.

    Spurs doubled their lead just two minutes before half-time with Son Heung-min who caught Leeds' defence off guard and picked up Kane's through pass to finish off with a cool shot, which marked his 100th goal for the north Londoners.

    Things got worse for Marcelo Bielsa's men in the second half as Toby Alderweireld scored the third with a cool header, which Meslier couldn't save and thus the ball went over the line after 50 minutes.

    Tottenham dominated the rest of the game but lost Matt Doherty to a second yellow card after he stepped on Ian Poveda's foot in the second minute of stoppage time

    80 And we got only 10 minutes left at Tottenham.

    Spurs have sealed an important and impressive victory over a strong Leeds side.

    The visitors let themselves down after dominating the first half but a poor challenge by Alioski, a defence that was off guard and Alderweireld's early goal in the second half were their undoing.

    They got enough time to get on the scoresheet though…
