A massive long ball from Jan Vertonghen beat Ahmed Elmohamady and fell for Danny Rose, who cut back for Christian Eriksen to finish within 15 minutes of kickoff.

Hull didn’t quit, and Jake Livermore continued a run of in-form displays when he forced Hugo Lloris into a strong second half save.

Spurs then supplied a bit of comfort to their supporters, with Eriksen nabbing his second goal. Eric Dier found Kyle Walker, who sent a ball across the 18 for Eriksen to finish with a lot more ease than his first.

Eriksen nearly had a hat trick when his free kick hit the inside of the post, heading right for Wanyama’s easy finish.
