Dele Alli continued his impressive season with another well-rounded performance. His crosses into the box were dangerous all evening, leading to an assist, and when he was substituted the whole of White Hart Lane was on their feet applauding the youngster.
MOMENT OF THE MATCH
Tottenham’s second goal was a goal of class and persistence. Spurs flooded forwards in numbers and Chadli’s initial shot could not be caught by Fiorentina goalkeeper Ciprian Tatarusanu. The palm out found Alli, whose shot was blocked, but Lamela turned on the spot and smashed the loose ball into the back of the net.
VIEW FROM THE BENCH
Tottenham captain Lloris was in goal for the first time since February 14 after he picked up a shoulder injury. The Frenchman had a relatively quiet night making some easy saves in the first half but in the second half he had a lot more pressure to deal with. The home side showed they were not a one-man team without star man Harry Kane, who missed the game after breaking his nose in the FA Cup fifth-round loss against Crystal Palace last weekend.
MOAN OF THE MATCH
Spurs had a good shout for a penalty in the first half when Chadli was wrestled to the floor in the penalty area in an off-the-ball incident. The Belgian and many Tottenham fans at that end shouted for the penalty but the referee gave a free-kick against him much to the disbelief of many inside the stadium.
WHO’S UP NEXT?
