Tottenham Hotspur are back to winning ways as they smashed four past Red Star Belgrade without reply tonight, their first win since the 5-0 home match against the same opponents last month.
Let’s take a look at the five players who stood out against the Serbian side:
Paulo Gazzaniga –
We simply have to mention this guy tonight. Without Gazza, Spurs would have likely gone 1-0 down in the match and been faced with a very tough challenge to break Red Star down. Gazzaniga has had three great games back-to-back now, really putting his name in the hat for that number one jersey.
Tanguy Ndombele –
Overplays a little at the back, but Ndombele was sensational again tonight. Somehow plays that holding role but also manages to get forward and be one of the chief playmakers too. Reminds me of Mousa Dembele with a bit more of a direct attitude. This guy is going to be some player.
Giovani Lo Celso –
First start in a Spurs shirt and his first goal. Everything good for Spurs came through the Argentine today and he should be one of the first names on the teamsheet from here on in. Superb passing, creativity, expert set pieces, and a good finish. What a full debut.
Juan Foyth –
Doesn’t look like Dani Alves in his prime, but Juan Foyth looked solid at right-back tonight, far better than the majority who have played there for Spurs this season. Great tackling and awareness at the back but also offered an outlet on the flank in an attacking sense.
Heung Min Son –
A tricky evening for the South Korean after an ordeal of a Sunday, but he managed to get back on track in the perfect way. Two goals and a great all-around performance from the winger, putting to bed the idea that the Gomes injury might halt his season.
