All the best bits as Spurs run riot against QPR

Tottenham made easy work of Harry Redknapp’s QPR at White Hart Lane this afternoon, with a 4-0 rout to put them top of the league.

It was their opening 45 minutes that was most impressive, with Eric Lamela stealing the show to provide two goals as Nacer Chadli popped up with a brace.

Eric Dier also scored – his second in two games – to also give him the perfect start to life back in England. Here’s all the best bits as Spurs thrashed QPR this afternoon…

Chadli’s opener

Nacer Chadli scores for Spurs v QPR

Nacer Chadli was the surprise scorer of Spurs’ 11th minute opener and it was a well worked goal.

Adebayor delivered a wonderful deep cross towards the back post and Chadli brought it down on his chest and neatly dinked it over Robert Green. A good finish and a well deserved lead for Spurs after a bright start…

Eric Dier scores AGAIN for Spurs

Well, Spurs didn’t sign Eric Dier to score goals but he’s their unlikely top goal scorer with two in two this season.

The young Cheltenham-born defender double his goal tally for the season with a neat header in from a Lamela free-kick. What a start to his Tottenham career. Two shots, two goals…

Spurs’ first half performance

Spurs’ were just unbelievable in the opening 45 minutes, ripping Harry Redknapp’s QPR to shreds with three wonderfully worked goals.

The performance was certainly more to do with their conviction rather than QPR’s lack of ability and organisation, which says a lot about the work Pochettino is doing at White Hart Lane.

Eric Lamela’s performance


Spurs fans have been desperate to see Eric Lamela prove that he’s worth the £30m they paid for him last summer.

And the opening 45 minutes will have been enough to convince them that they’ll finally be able to see why cost so much.

Adebayor sends Spurs top of the league

Adebayor v Spurs

It’s still early days and there’s no way Spurs will win the league on the basis of thrashing a newly promoted QPR side, but the Spurs fans couldn’t help but boast of their new found place at the summit of the Premier League after Adebayor made it 4-0 to the hosts. That goal pushed them above Chelsea in to 1st on goal difference. As you can imagine, Tottenham fan’s were absolutely loving it…
