Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri: Manchester City are far above everyone else

Then there is four or five teams who will have to fight for the Champions League positions.

Liverpool produced a superb second-half performance as they won 3-0 at Watford, having been frustrated in the first half.

The South Korean's deft finish went through the legs of the flailing Heurelho Gomes, sparking wild celebrations in the away end despite protestations of offside from the Watford players.

With the comprehensive victories, both Manchester City and Liverpool maintained their dominance on top of the league table with Pep Guardiola's side leading the charts with 35 points while Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool trailed the Cityzens by just two points.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has stuck the knife into his clubs bitter North London rivals Arsenal by suggesting the Gunners are no longer his sides main rivals.

Spurs added a sensational third when Son Heung-min carried the ball from inside his own half, beat two men easily before finishing neatly.

Son completed the turnaround three minutes later before Eriksen made it three in the dying seconds. He scored 21 goals in 34 starts, contributing seven assists.

But on his good days, the former Paris Saint-Germain player can be a majestic defender, whose pace, physicality and reading of the game make him the outstanding performer on the pitch. "One thing we need to realise is that with the right attitude, we can compete at this level".

The home side should have doubled their lead two minutes later after Eriksen picked out Son, but his close range strike went over.

Spurs were the better team throughout and were well deserving of their victory.

Tottenham did not let up in the second half and it was 3-0 in the 54th minute, with Son coming in off the flank, beating David Luiz and sliding his shot past Kepa.

The South Korean troubled the Dortmund defence throughout with his direct running and tricky interplay and his stunning victor earned him the man of the match accolade. However, they sit third in Premier League standings behind Manchester City and Liverpool.

"We started games always thinking we were going to win".

But Lukebakio finished off his hat trick with goals in the 77th minute and third minute of stoppage time to send Bayern's winless league run to three matches.
