Three days after losing the north London derby, Tottenham fans were back taunting their arch-rivals again writes John Cross in The Mirror
According to the article “Are you watching, Arsenal?” came the chant from the away end after Heung-Min Son smashed in Tuesday’s winner which maintained his incredible scoring record against Borussia Dortmund.
The article does add that much more importantly, it means We are guaranteed to top Group H above both Real Madrid and Dortmund, the two European super-powers who, after the draw was Madrid, left a few Spurs fans fearing another season in the Europa League.
Cross adds that it is a “remarkable achievement” from Mauricio Pochettino’s men and no wonder the supporters feel like crowing about it as they are on Europe’s top stage while their neighbours are stuck with Thursday night football.
The article goes on to describe how Harry Kane scored his first goal in a month – mind you, he still has 17 goals in his last 16 games for club and country and an incredible 39 in 38 for Tottenham in 2017 and adds that just as important was Dele Alli’s return to form.
Despite a subdued first half Alli provided both assists, first for Kane and then Son who has now scored eight goals in eight games against Dortmund for his former clubs Hamburg, Bayer Leverkusen and now Spurs.
The article adds how Dele has been struggling for form and confidence lately – bar his brilliant man of the match display against Madrid – but says last nights showing was a return to his best.
The article describes it as big win for the club as they stuffed Dortmund at Wembley, did the same to Madrid and can now rest a few players for the final group match at home to APOEL in a fortnight with us of course guaranteeing first place on the head-to-head after taking four points against Madrid.
It describes our victory as “A gritty Win” after going behind — adding its a huge statement which left our fans also chanting, “We are top of the league” at the end.
