Mauricio Pochettino’s League Cup final-bound Spurs are absolutely roaring, this time at the expense of the home crowd at the Hawthorns. Tottenham cruised past West Brom 3-0 to move into the Top Five for the time being.

Christian Eriksen continued his brilliant free kicking, and Harry Kane continued to prove he’s here to stay in a 3-0 win.

Losses from QPR, Hull and Leicester keep West Brom three points shy of the drop zone.

Eriksen’s sixth-minute free kick from 22 yards out started out right before spinning over the wall and back inside the left post to put Spurs ahead.

And Kane’s chest-trap saved a tough first touch before he blasted a ball home in the 15th minute.

A Joleon Lescott handball in the box pretty much confirmed West Brom’s fate, especially considering who stepped up to take the spot kick.

Kane coolly converted the penalty for his second of the night, as Tottenham cruised through the second half much to Tony Pulis’ dismay.
