Full Time: Hull City 1-7 Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur totally destroyed and decimated Hull City in their final game of the Premier League thrashing the Tigers 7-1 at the KCOM Arena.
Spurs were off to a brilliant start with striker Harry Kane scoring a quickfire double in space of two minutes. Dele Alli made it three on the verge of half-time. Sam Clucas pulled one back in the 66th minute, but Victor Wanyama restored Tottenham’s three-goal cushion soon afterwards.
Kane then completed his second hat-trick in the space of three days to make it 5-1 before Ben Davies and Toby Alderweireld added the sixth and the seventh for Spurs late in the game.
Here is how the Tottenham players fared on the day:
Tottenham Player Ratings
Hugo Lloris – 7/10
Had little to do in the first period and made a fine stop from a Tom Huddlestone effort. No chance for the goal.
Kieran Trippier – 8/10
Brilliant. Set Kane up for the second with a volleyed cross, before picking out Alderweireld with pinpoint accuracy late in the game. Irrespective of whether Kyle Walker stays or not, should be first choice next season.
Toby Alderweireld – 8/10
Had it very easy defensively today. Composed and calm. Got his first goal of the season late in the game.
Jan Vertonghen – 7/10
His mistake led to the consolation goal for the Tigers, but other than that an assured display alongside his compatriot.
Ben Davies – 8/10
Solid defensively, brilliant on the forward runs. Great to see his name on the scoresheet. Has come a long way in the last few months.
Victor Wanyama – 8/10
Controlled the midfield brilliantly allowing the creative players to prosper around him. Scored a good header.
Eric Dier – 8/10
Equally good alongside Wanyama in the middle of the park. Broke up play all day long and played an important role in the lead up to the opener.
Christian Eriksen – 8.5/10
Returned to line-up and pulled the strings for Tottenham in the attacking third. Set up the opener for Kane and the fourth goal for Wanyama’s strike from a free-kick. Sensational.
Dele Alli – 8/10
Beautiful finish on the stroke of half-time to put his side three goals up. Set Kane up for his third goal with a back-heel.
Heung-Min Son – 8/10
Continued where he left off against Leicester. An unselfish and a hard-working display from the South Korean. Teed Alli up for the third goal.
Harry Kane – 10/10
Absolutely sensational. A second hat-trick in three days allowed him to easily clinch his second consecutive golden boot award. World Class.
Mousa Dembele – 7/10
Replaced Eric Dier in the 73rd minute. Drove Spurs forward from the midfield.
Moussa Sissoko – 7/10
Came on for Alli in the 73d minute. Almost scored himself. Set Davies up for the sixth strike.
Vincent Janssen – NA
Replaced Kane for the last ten minutes.
