To say the least, Tottenham is on a roll. Its latest victim: Italian giant Inter Milan, which Spurs beat, 3-0, Thursday in the first leg of their Europa League round-of-16 series at White Hart Lane.

Since it was knocked out of the FA Cup by Leeds United in January, Spurs has not lost. Inter was embarrassed by Tottenham's relentless quality and drive -- something the London club wasn't always known for.

Once again, the star was 21-year-old Welshman Gareth Bale with one goal and an assist.  But he is not the only reason for the success of Tottenham, third in the EPL. American Clint Dempsey may remain sidelined with a calf injury, but other summer signings -- Jan Vertonghen and Gylfi Sigurdsson, who had the other goals against Inter, and Mousa Dembele -- were excellent on Thursday.
