‘A bit of hope’ – Some Spurs fans react to Wolfsberger win

Tottenham brushed Wolfsberger aside this evening to breeze into the round of 16 in the Europa League, overcoming the Austrian side 8-1 on aggregate.

The result is a much-needed morale booster for Jose Mourinho’s men, as well as the Tottenham fan base, given the doom and gloom surrounding the club on the back of recent results.

It turned out to be an ideal evening for the North Londoners, not only because of the emphatic nature of the result, but also because Dele Alli and Gareth Bale got on the scoresheet.

Both players, who have been in the periphery of the squad so far this season, seem to be coming back into form over the last couple of weeks.

Alli started the game and opened the scoring with a lovely overhead kick and then set up Carlos Vinicius’ and Bale’s second-half goals.

Bale, who came on with little over 20 minutes left, was found by Alli with a perfectly weighted cross-field pass which the Welshman side-footed into the top corner with a brilliant first-time finish.

Some Spurs fans admitted that the performance and the result restored some belief and demanded that Bale and Alli start against Burnley on Sunday.


Spurs Web Opinion

The fact that Mourinho left Bale on the bench suggests that he is planning to name the Welshman in the starting line up against Burnley. It would also be hard for the Tottenham boss to overlook Alli on the back of that performance but Lamela was also excellent this evening which is why I feel the Argentine might get the nod to start ahead of the 24-year-old on Sunday.
