2 Gundogan gain

The Germany midfielder ghosted into the box to head home unmarked for the opener and he seemed to grow in confidence thereafter.

A shoulder dropped here, a stepover there, we had a glimpse into the Gundogan trickbox and we liked what we saw!

The more minutes he gets, the better his condition will become and we can look forward to plenty more performances like this.

3 Electric Sane

Spurs simply couldn't cope with the winger's electric pace, especially in the first half.

He takes off from a standing start like a Formula One car and he repeatedly breached Spurs' last line to pull dangerous balls back.

When he finds space down the flank like he did before his assist for the third goal, he is almost unstoppable.
