On the back an unconvincing draw against Watford, Tottenham desperately needed a win against Red Star Belgrade to restore some confidence. Additionally, failing to win this evening would have put Spurs in a perilous position in the Group B of the Champions League.

What Mauricio Pochettino’s men delivered was not just a convincing win but also a near-flawless performance.

The Argentine unsurprisingly made several changes to the side with the likes of Ben Davies, Erik Lamela, and Son Heung-min coming in, while Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld were not even part of the match day squad.

The Lilywhites dominated right from the start as the visitors struggled to get a foothold in the game. It has been a while since Spurs fans had seen a aggressive and free-flowing brand of football and some fans on social media were delighted with what they saw.

The team pressed high up the pitch and played with a high tempo which was reminiscent of what we did a couple of years ago.

Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to the performance:

While the quality of the opposition clearly wasn’t of a high standard, the attitude and application that the players showed suggested that they are determined to turn their form around. There were several brilliant displays all over the pitch. This dominating display will hopefully help the team finally turn the curve and build some momentum.
