Son Heung-min scored a sensational hat trick as Tottenham took control of the race for a Premier League top-four spot with a 4-0 win at Aston Villa on Saturday.

After Manchester United and Arsenal both lost earlier in the day, Son’s treble and Dejan Kulusevski’s strike sent Spurs three points clear in fourth place.

It was a fourth win in a row and seventh from the last nine, making it difficult to look past Tottenham in the fight for Champions League qualification following Antonio Conte’s transformation of the team.

The lethal front three, with Harry Kane involved in three of the goals, sealed the victory but Spurs also had captain Hugo Lloris to thank just as much.

After Son’s third-minute opener, Tottenham was under pressure for most of the first half, with the Frenchman’s heroics keeping a rampant Villa at bay.

The visitors’ quality on the break in the second half saw them run away with it and consign Villa to a fourth straight defeat.
