Tuesday evening Champions League clash against Olympiakos was certainly a mixed affair for Tottenham Hotspur.
After the trials and tribulations in 2019, this was Jose Mourinho’s first time in the dugout at White Hart Lane and he undoubtedly saw the best and worst of the side.
We were 2-0 down within the opening 20 minutes of the tie, but having gone into the halftime break with some renewed optimism as Dele Alli clawed one back, the second half was far livelier from our perspective and a brace from Harry Kane, with Serge Aurier also getting himself on the scoresheet, gave us the 4-2 victory.
It wasn’t comfortable but our fightback and the spirit shown (extra credit to the ball boy who became our 12th man) was reflected by statistics website Whoscored.
With a brace, Harry was naturally their star man and took Man of the Match with a player rating of 8.90, and completing the top five best performers on the day were Aurier (8.24), Alli (7.94), Christian Eriksen (7.63) and Son Heung-Min (7.28).
Harry Winks and Lucas Moura also scored in the sevens after that.
Two wins, plenty to learn but some sharp action from our new gaffer as things were going wrong and it seems plenty are happy to take that positive, but I’m not sure Kane would’ve been the pick here.
Should've Been The Ball Boy If We're Honest!
