Despite it being only nine months since their last visit to Wembley for their historic SkyBet Championship Play-Off final win over Reading, there was to be no happy returns this time out.
Mauricio Pochettino's side dominated proceedings throughout with Son Heung-Min opening the scoring for Spurs in the 27th minute.
The South Korean then doubled his and Tottenham's lead early in the second period, heading home an exquisite cross from Harry Kane.
