With two crucial matches against Manchester City looming large on the horizon, Mauricio Pochettino rested a slew of first-team players but it didn’t take long for his second-string to make an impression.
Victor Wanyama opened the scoring in impressive fashion, tiptoeing around Ben Hamer and then casually rolling the ball into the net.
Three minutes later and Spurs doubled their advantage, when Lucas Moura lashed home a fizzing shot.
And the Brazilian made sure of the win with two goals late on, completing his hat-trick to send Spurs one point ahead of Chelsea and four ahead of Arsenal, who travel to Watford on Monday night.
