Ossie Ardiles has labelled Tottenham’s performance against West Brom as “very, very impressive” after they won 4-0 at White Hart Lane.

Star striker Harry Kane struck a wonderful hat-trick for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, while a Gareth McAuley own goal saw Spurs move to within four points of league leaders Chelsea.

Posting on his personal Twitter account, former Spurs player and manager Ardiles congratulated current boss Pochettino and the players after the impressive win at White Hart Lane.

Playmaker Christian Eriksen’s vision and incisive assist handed Kane a golden chance to break the deadlock which he took with aplomb, just days after becoming a father.

Eriksen’s shot was then deflected into his own net by McAuley past the helpless Ben Foster, before Kane doubled his tally in the second half.

The 23-year-old profited from some woeful West Brom defending to acrobatically score a second from a Kyle Walker cross, before a wonderful chip from Dele Ali was volleyed into the net by Kane.

The win for Spurs pushes them into second ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, who play against bitter rivals Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Pochettino’s side have now won six straight Premier League games as they  recover from a mid-season blip that saw them taste victory just once in ten league and cup encounters.

The north London giants will be hoping to stretch that run to seven wins in their next outing as they travel to Manchester to face Pep Guardiola’s City at the Etihad on January 21.

In other Tottenham news, these two Spurs players are better than their Chelsea counterparts according to Mark Lawrenson.
