“And the Spurs go marchin’ ON! ON!! ON!!!”

I can assure you that at half-time, the Spurs fans were not singing. After dominating much of the first half and taking a deserved lead – scored by Jermain Defoe (after 5 previous gild-edged attempts) and assisted by Man of the Match, David Bentley – Spurs once again contrived to take its foot off the pedal and allowed Leeds to equalize just before the break.

But thanks to a professional second half display, Spurs finally cast aside Leeds’ challenge with Defoe completing his hat-trick, with Bentley providing another fine assist for the second. Overall, the result is nothing less than Spurs deserved for their thoroughly dominant performance.

The main positive point taken away from this game is the continued improvement of Bentley. In the prolonged absence of Aaron Lennon, Bentley has stepped uo to prove even his harshest critics. Bentley was a constant thorn in Leeds’ side with his movement and intelligent passes. It augers well for Spurs’ progress in both league and cup for the rest of the season.
