Jermain Defoe scored a hat trick as Spurs took apart Hull. The other goals came from Wilson Palacios, already an indispensable figure in midfield and Robbie Keane. Aaron Lennon assisted in two goals, Robbie Keane in two more, and Tom Huddlestone had a hand in the opening goal by Defoe.
Luka Modric provided the pacesetting and the deft touches.
Stephen Hunt scored the only Hull goal.
On the strength of their display in these two wins, Spurs definitely look ready to break into the the top four. They have a settled back four with Bassong fitting right in and Wilson Palacios providing the tough holding cover for the likes of Luka Modric, Robbie Keane, and Jermain Defoe.
