2004: Tottenham Hotspur 5-1 Southampton

Jermain Defoe's hat-trick against Southampton helped Tottenham Hotspur to their fourth successive victory.

The England striker first slotted home from Frederic Kanoute's cross and then coolly punished a defensive error, before Kanoute put Spurs 3-0 up.

Peter Crouch headed in two minutes after the break to give Southampton some hope, but Defoe completed his treble and substitute Robbie Keane scored a fifth for Spurs.

The result left the north London side eighth on 25 points while Southampton remained in the bottom three in 19th place on 13 points, two points from safety.
