Leeds United 0 Tottenham Hotspur 4
Tottenham boss Antonio Conte said his side laid down a marker in the 4-0 romp over Leeds where Harry Kane and Son Heung-min made Premier League history.
The pair combined for the 37th time when Kane superbly assisted Son’s late strike, moving clear of Chelsea pair Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba.
It was a fitting end to a comprehensive win for Antonio Conte’s side, who laid the foundation with three goals in the opening 27 minutes as Ireland international Matt Doherty, Dejan Kulusevski and Kane got on the scoresheet.
Spurs’ produced an impressive response to Conte’s midweek rant, where the Italian cast doubt over his future after a 1-0 loss at Burnley by suggesting he was not “good enough” to fix his side’s problems, and the boss wants this performance to be the standard.
“For the first time I have seen my mark about this system, to create with the wing back and the other wing back to score. This is a mark of my system, my formation,” he said. “This is the first time. It means the work is starting to work.
