Tottenham playing the best football in the Premier League
Seven Premier League wins on the bounce. Tottenham thrashed Bournemouth to continue their stunning run and pile the pressure back on leaders Chelsea, but it was the manner of the win which was so striking. Mauricio Pochettino's men roared into a commanding first-half lead and cruised through the second having thoroughly dismantled their opponents.
Arguably Spurs are currently playing the best football in the Premier League and, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min all in such electric form, there appear to be no teams able to cope with Pochettino's side. With 68 goals on the board, Tottenham have scored the joint-most along with Liverpool and seem to only be hitting new heights with their current run of form.
Kane the real deal
Surely Harry Kane doesn't still have any doubters. The Tottenham forward scored his 25th goal of the season as his side thumped Bournemouth and, in so doing, joined an elite group of forwards to net 20 Premier League goals in three consecutive campaigns, emulating Alan Shearer, Thierry Henry and Ruud van Nistelrooy.
To make Kane's achievement all the more impressive, he was starting for the first time since sustaining an ankle injury in March and has not been afforded a clear run of games in which to reach the landmark. Indeed, Kane's 69 goals in 110 Premier League games see him emulate Luis Suarez. The Spurs and England forward can surely extend his run of seasons with 20 Premier League goals, fitness permitting, and continue to confound any critics he still has.
Lukaku headed back to Chelsea
Romelu Lukaku is what you call a goalscoring machine. His statistics are now getting to ridiculous levels for a team with little chance of making the Champions League, a tournament befitting a predator of his nature. He became the first player to score in eight consecutive PL home matches of his club since Wayne Rooney did it for Manchester United from December 2009.
He has now scored in all nine matches at Goodison Park in all competitions in 2017 (total 14 goals) and with Diego Costa struggling convert despite the excellent service he receives, Lukaku looks top of Antonio Conte and Roman Abramovic’s list to return to his old club.
Isco needs to be playing every week
Real Madrid have a wealth of riches - so much so, a player of Isco's calibre does not get the chance to start every game for Zinedine Zidane's side. When he does play, however, he is almost always superb and his performance in the crucial and dramatic 3-2 win over Sporting Gijon was just stunning.
