...the man of the match? Spurs were going through their usual routine against a non-footballing flat back nine, that is struggling, until Big Sam played the master tactician.
...three. Spurs' two two draw with Leicester in the third round of the F.A. Cup means the teams will now face each other three times in a week and a half.
...not much less. Spurs made their merry way east to Azerbaijan for the Europa League tie with Qarabag and came back with the much needed three points, no injuries and not too much exertion expended.
...Spurs can't, is that Spursy of them? In their second attempt to throw away a lead against Anderlecht in the Europa League, Spurs just couldn't do it, instead getting back on track with a 2-1 reversal of the first game score.
...the party. Even though Spurs outplayed Swansea it took two pieces of free-kick magic from Christian Eriksen to rescue a point from their visit to Wales.
...can't even get you back on track? We found out that Newcastle becoming the only team not to be cured by Doctor Tottenham this season are as bad as it gets.
...Spurs. Since the disappointment of the previous week Spurs have bounced back with two victories but made hard work of beating Swansea and now QPR when it should have been much easier.
...final. There's a lot of people really happy with the way Spurs played as they lost the League Cup final but in all honesty it looks like the worst type of straw clutching.
...in the end. Spurs did their usual trick of sinking to the level of the opposition as they came back from being two down to draw with Wet Spam with the last kick of the game.
...team. Spurs travelled away to a West Brom under new management and thanks to the three amigos of Kane, Eriksen and Lloris came away with three goals, a clean sheet and three points
...time. Spurs looked to be really Spursing up their chance of a League Cup final when Christen Eriksen did what Christen Eriksen does and put pay to Sheffield United's Wembley dreams.
...to it. Spurs take an early lead, get pegged back and then Christian Eriksen saves the day in the dying minutes as the beat Sunderland with only Defoe's lack of goal going against script.
...forward. Burnley at home, after two wins in the week, was meant to be a banana skin for Spurs, but it turned out after a game of two halves and three goals to be one more hurdle overcome.
...makes. AVB was sacked leaving Dim Sherwood in charge, his first game in charge saw a demoralising League Cup quarter final loss, a year later Pochettino saw a 4-0 thumping of Newcastle at the same stage.
...grab. Reports coming in tell of a group of Spurs footballers who crossed the border into England late last night after a daring raid in Swansea that saw them grab 3 points after coming under intense attack.
