Tottenham Hotspur continued their fine form of late last night, defeating Inter Milan in a must-win Champions League tie.

Spurs won the game 1-0, courtesy of a second half Christian Eriksen finish after the Great Dane came off the bench.

This sent Spurs above Inter in the group standings, albeit only on their head to head record via away goals.

Tottenham will now likely have to beat Barcelona away from home to secure their spot in the knock out stages.

However, it wasn’t Eriksen, or Kane, or Alli, or Son being singled out for praise after the full time whistle.

It truth, the real man to thank for the winning Tottenham goal was one Moussa Sissoko.

He picked the ball up on the edge of the final third and drove past defenders and into the box, creating space for his teammates.

He then showed coolness to lift his head and pull the ball back to Dele Alli, who laid it off for the Eriksen finish.

This was the latest in a string of amazing performances from the Frenchman this season, a complete turnaround of his Tottenham career.

Football London report Poch had this to say: “It’s difficult to talk. The difficult thing was to talk a few seasons before or in the past. Now everyone is seeing that he is doing fantastically.

“His contribution is a fantastic thing for the team in a period when we need this type of performance. He provides the team a very good balance in transitions and defensive situations and plays in possession better than we thought.

“That shows that being professional and working hard you can improve a lot. In two and a half years, Moussa has a massive improvement. It speaks very well about the platform Tottenham provides players to improve. It’s a very good example of the platform we provide.”
