Son Heung-min reinforced his status as one of the English Premier League's best players with his 14th and 15th goals to guide Tottenham past Huddersfield 2-0 at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Swansea continued their revival under new manager Carlos Carvalhal by thrashing West Ham 4-1, and Burnley came from behind to defeat Everton 2-1 and reach 40 points in the league for the first time.

Watford piled on the misery for West Bromwich Albion by beating the bottom club 1-0. Leicester were held at home by Bournemouth 1-1, and Stoke drew at Southampton 0-0.

Third-place Liverpool met Newcastle later on Saturday.

Huddersfield's chances of defeating Tottenham for the first time since 1956 received a blow when Dele Alli sent Son racing clear of the defense in the 27th minute. Son rounded goalkeeper Jonas Lossl for the opening goal.

Tottenham moved a point above Liverpool into third.
