Tottenham head caoch Andre Villas-Boas hailed Jermain Defoe after his brace against Fulham.
The England international scored his 11th and 12th goals of the season.
First he turned home Gylfi Sigurdsson’s cross in the 72nd minute and he then latched on to Clint Dempsey’s through-ball to beat Mark Schwarzer from 12 yards.
Villas-Boas, whose side are now in fourth position, was left in awe of the in-form striker’s exploits.
“It was amazing,” the Portuguese said.
“Sometimes strikers look distant from the game but when the team sets them up it’s important that they have that clinical touch and he just has it.
“He is having an amazing season with us. He is playing lots of games and is extremely motivated.”
