Midfielder Dele Alli expected a workout against the Azerbaijan champions but was happy with Spurs’ overall performance.

“I think it was unfortunate to give away the first goal but overall it was a good performance,” he told BT Sport Europe.

“They definitely weren’t going to come here and play down. They made us work for the win as we knew they would and they’re not a bad side. They came here with a point to prove and I think they did well.”

The playmaker also hailed double goalscorer Son after the South Korean changed the course of the game in two first-half minutes.

“It’s always good to help the team and I’m obviously happy for Son getting his two goals and it was good to play a part in it and I’m happy with the win,” Alli said.

“He’s a top player and it’s always good to have competition with a few players that can play up front. He put in a good performance and I’m delighted for him getting his two goals.”

  1. Yesterday’s win was fantastic, with the regards to our poor start to the season. But in my opinion spurs manager should have let lamela leave in the last transfer window due to the fact that his contribution to the team is minimal. His passes are not correct and he always kills our attacks by bringing the ball back,hence allowing the opponents to settle, a times by so doing the opponents score us.
