United, Spurs triumph


Spurs had gone in 1-0 up at the break thanks to a ninth-minute Peter Crouch header. Defoe opened his account in the 51st and wasted no time in completing his hat-trick seven minutes later.

He then netted again in the 69th and completed his tally with a right-foot shot three minutes from time. Aaron Lennon also struck in the 64th while shell-shocked Wigan keeper Chris Kirkland added to the goal tally in the 88th.

Niko Kranjcar scored in the dying seconds to wrap up Tottenham's biggest win for 32 years.  Wigan's only reply was a controversial Paul Scharner goal in the 57th minute.
Manchester United kept pace with the leaders Chelsea by beating Everton 3-0 at home in the late match to move up to second.
