It was always going to be difficult to beat such a good side and ultimately games against lesser outfits will ultimately determine Town's Premier League fate in May.
However, fans are still worried about the lack of clinical edge in the final third with the supply to targetman Laurent Depoitre the main concern.
Have a look below at the top comments left by fans on the Examiner's coverage from the John Smith's Stadium.
Well beaten by a very good team but the weak links in the side are both flanks not producing anything – Laurent Depoitre was feeding off scraps.
We expected nothing and got nothing and the club should be proud of the fans, they were fantastic all game.
The best side won, fair and square even if the score slightly flattered them. We won't be playing truly class sides like this every week and hopefully we won't hand them a two goal start either.
Men against boys - started positively but early mistake led to our downfall. Expected a tough test but too many players underperformed. Not many attacking options on the bench and still need another striker in January.
Town's season will not be defined against teams like Tottenham Hotspur and the two Manchester clubs so lets not be too critical.
We never gave up and played some good football at times but made two individual mistakes which we were punished for.
Tony, Fenay Bridge
Town came up against a Tottenham side with Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli on fire - what a joy to watch their movement and attacking football.
Many teams would have capitulated after conceding three goals in 14 minutes but we kept at it and were roared on by fantastic support from all sides of the ground – pure class when Kane left the field and got a standing ovation from both sets of supporters.
Spirited but outclassed.
Arthur, Crosland Moor
Outclassed by a superior team but three of their four goals were caused by our mistakes. Still wonderful support though.
Too many individual mistakes – the wide players were poor while Tom Ince was not at his best in the 'Number 10' role.
Looked sharp at times but let down by poor defending. Potential to do better against some of the bigger teams but must take three points from Swansea City next time out - no pressure!!
Silly mistakes by our defence let us down. We should have had a penalty when we were 2-0 down, with a blatant push from behind on Elias Kachunga. If it had then gone to 2-1, we don't know what could have happened. We desperately need a left winger, centre half and another striker.
David, New Mill
Tried hard but well beaten by a vastly superior team.
Andrew Zavros, Birkenshaw
There is a big gulf in class between the top five and the rest of the premier league so there is no shame. Onwards and upwards!
The main lesson was Spurs took their chances and didn't make mistakes and we were the exact opposite.
Scott Malone has to be given a chance - chin up and if lessons are learned then no harm done.
Did our best, but hopefully we won't come up against such quality every week. We need to wise up with our tactics. Lack of goals is still a bit worrying.
We were obviously beaten by a very good team whose passing and movement was first class. But sadly Town presented them with ALL their goals with basic carelessness and poor errors.
Our usual effort, determination, battling spirit cannot be faulted but we need to be clinical more often.
Frank, Salendine Nook
Town were overawed by a very impressive Spurs side which showed superb control and off the ball movement. We gifted them three of the goals but the score was not over flattering as they took their foot off the gas in the second half.
More caution needed against the best teams - Town were over-committed in attack early on and unable to cover defensive mistakes.
Very poor showing from Town; we have a lot to learn from class sides like Tottenham Hotspur.
Far too many basic errors against a side at the top of their game was only ever going to end up with one result.
Joe, Crosland Moor
Too many individual errors against a very good Spurs team.
Too many individual mistakes and at this level you will be punished for them. In attack we have to learn to cross the ball accurately and quickly.

Town were out-paced and out-thought in every department. Pressing doesn't work when the opposition has the level of skill and thought Spurs have.
We might have done better if we had not been so in awe of Spurs, but it was not helped by Chris Lowe having a bad day and Rajiv van La Parra being totally ineffective both in terms of attacking and defensive play.
Town were outclassed from beginning to end -no shame in that as Spurs are a quality Champions League side.
Spurs were in a different league with accurate one touch passing and Kane was in superb form.
Maybe it's time for Malone to get a spell at left back as Lowe's confidence looks shot while in January we need to bring in at least one wide player who can put decent crosses into the box.
A harsh lesson that mistakes cost goals in this division, especially when the beneficiary is Harry Kane.
