Tottenham secure stunning 4-0 win against QPR

Football News

Amongst two dull 1-1 draws elsewhere, Tottenham recorded an amazing 4-0 win over a mediocre QPR side to send them top of the Premier League table.

The match was dominated from start to finish by Mauricio Pochettino's men. An early chance fell to Erik Lamela, whose low drive was deflected out for a corner.

The QPR goal was under threat again soon after when Nabil Bentaleb broke away and flicked the ball in to Emmanuel Adebayor, who saw his header fly just clear of the bar.

The deadlock was soon broken by Nacer Chadli, who sublimely chested Adebayor's cross down and deftly flicked the ball over the flailing arms of Robert Green in the QPR goal.

Harry Redknapp's Rangers could have drawn level soon after, with Matt Phillips taking down a long ball and successfully wriggling away from Younes Kaboul, however his attempted chip flew well high of Hugo Lloris' goal.

Dominant display

Tottenham's lead was extended not long after when Eric Dier, Tottenham's heroic last-minute winner at West Ham last week, won a corner. The 20-year-old Englishman then converted Lamela's dipping cross with a powerful header at the near post, which took Green into the net with it.

Chadli got Spurs' third, and his second, before the break. After an incredible 48-pass move, with all 11 players involved, Lamela weaved his way through the QPR defence before somehow managing to direct a cross onto the Belgian's head which flew into the bottom corner.

Tottenham were not content with three however, and in the second half grabbed a fourth. A wonderful flick from Chadli sent Danny Rose charging free of the defence, who then placed a perfectly weighted ball into Adebayor's path for him to dispatch with ease with a simply side-foot tap-in. 

Disallowed goal

The match was wrapped up already but QPR did manage to get the ball into Lloris' goal - a corner flew into the Spurs box and looped, deflected off of Rose, over the Frenchman's head, but the goal was ruled out due to a clear push on the Spurs 'keeper.

Tottenham will take great confidence from their third win in a week, especially as this one carries them to the top of the league table.

They look forward now to a considerably tougher matchup against Liverpool next Sunday. Before that however, they face a home leg of their Europa League qualifier against AEL Limassol where they will play to protect their 2-1 home advantage.

For now however, Spurs fans all over will be very content with seeing their team top of the table.
