I now have to focus on the team.“I had to focus for the team, I had to keep going, keep working hard.”Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 10:10 pmPeter Crouch has described Son as “ruthless” with his finishing and praised the way he bounced back from the horrible Andre Gomes incident at the weekend.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 10:07 pmGLENN HODDLE was “baffled” by Red Star’s approach.He thinks they were too passive and let Spurs dominate.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 10:05 pm💙#UCL ⚪️ #COYS— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) November 6, 2019Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:57 pmA victory over Olympiacos next time out will see Spurs qualify with a game to spare, unless Red Star can beat Bayern Munich… which on this showing feels unlikely.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:54 pmFULL TIME: RED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 4What a pleasing result for Mauricio Pochettino on a night that they expected to be much more difficult than this.There were a few hairy moments at the back, but Spurs are now in a commanding position to qualify alongside Bayern Munich in Group B. Goals from debutant Lo Celso, Eriksen and a Son brace give Spurs a first away win since that night in Amsterdam six months ago.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:53 pmRED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 490mins: Oliver Skipp booked for a committed challenge.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:49 pmRED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 489mins: Sessegnon slips as it looked like he might play in Harry Kane. The match very much winding down now.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:45 pmRED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 485mins: Spurs have another and it’s Christian Eriksen! Lovely cross from Ryan Sessegnon after being played in behind by Danny Rose.Oliver Skipp replaces Lo Celso in the aftermath.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:42 pmRED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 383mins: Eriksen shoots tamely at Borjan after some neat passing.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:38 pmRED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 378mins: Unbelievably, a bad night for Pavkov has gotten even worse. He landed awkwardly after jumping for a cross and he is almost certainly going to be unable to continue.A pretty nasty twist of the left ankle.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:35 pmRED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 376mins: Lo Celso tamely steers a volley wise after a nice pass from Eriksen.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:35 pmRED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 375mins: Ryan Sessegnon replace two-goal Son Heung-min for Spurs. That quick fire double salvo earlier in the second rather killed any Red Star hope or momentum.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:28 pmRED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 369mins: Tanguy Ndombele lashes the ball miles over with a left footed shot from, to be fair, miles out.

Eriksen had out Rose in trouble with a slightly underhit pass.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:21 pmRED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 361mins: Amidst a strangely lengthy VAR check, Christian Eriksen replaces Dele Alli. The game is now back underway.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:20 pmRED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 360mins: It’s three! And that’s surely game over now. Son fires in Danny Rose’s square pass to almost certainly put the game out of sight.Harry Kane found Rose beautifully with a lovely through ball.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:18 pmRED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 257mins: A nightmare night for Pavkov got even worse as his poor pass was pounced upon by Ndombele.The Frenchman burst forward and found Alli, who slipped it agonisingly out of the defender’s reach and into Son’s path.The South Korean then smashed it into the back of the net with his left foot – showing the likes of Pavkov how it’s done.Etienne Fermie7 Nov 2019, 9:17 pmRED STAR 0 TOTTENHAM 257mins: It’s a second goal for Tottenham!Son Heung-min rifles it home after Dele Alli’s pass.Load more entries…last_img read more
