The man of the moment, Dele Alli, has been brilliant all season long.
January saw him show off a different side of his game.
As a teenager unused to the demands of a busy, top-flight season, Alli is feeling fatigue more than most of his teammates.
That has been evident in his less flashy recent performances.
The key is that Alli has not disappeared but seems to be saving his best for moments of sheer brilliance.
The astonishing goal against Crystal Palace made the headlines, but Alli is consistently producing moments of comparable magic.
In the same match, he showed brilliant skill to turn a Palace defender and was inches away from recording a brace.
His goal against Everton, a vital equaliser against a tricky, unpredictable opponent, showed his individual excellence.
Acting on inspiration, he darted into Everton's box, brought down Toby Alderweireld's long ball and thrashed in the goal.
The aggression and seemingly boundless energy that marked out his earlier displays have been subsidised by the addition of a willingness to shoot on sight of goal.
In the matches he started in January, Alli averaged five shots per game. In 2015, his average was just 1.8 shots per game.
Alli's evolution into a more willing shooter makes him a more dangerous player who demands attention from the opposition. This development guarantees greater freedom for the players around him and makes Spurs a far more dangerous team.
After an excellent start to his Tottenham career, Alli has taken another great leap forward in January.
