Jermain Defoe grabbed a hat-trick as Tottenham went top of the Barclays Premier League with a convincing 5-1 win at Hull.

Defoe and Wilson Palacios struck in the opening 14 minutes as Spurs raced out of the blocks at the KC Stadium.

Stephen Hunt gave Hull hope when his cross from a free-kick bounced in but Defoe scored again on the stroke of half-time and made sure in the last minute after a Robbie Keane header.
