Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe scored five times to send his side back into the Champions League places as Harry Redknapp's men ran out 9-1 winners against Wigan at White Hart Lane.

Paul Scharner appeared to handle when he grabbed Wigan's goal but there was no handball controversy as Defoe was in such rampant form, with Aaron Lennon, Peter Crouch, David Bentley and Niko Kranjcar also on the scoresheet.

The clash was played on a Sunday following an agreement between the clubs so players could rest after the international break - and Defoe seemed the freshest of those on display as he scored all his goals after the interval.
