Decent controlled game from us – Sissoko and Lo Celso dominated in midfield for Tottenham Hotspur and were simply superb and set us up perfectly for the win. Still rusty up front, but quality told in the end with Sonny setting HK10 off perfectly and a beautiful finish from our talisman – got to say great work from Lamela on several occasions including getting the ball back for that second goal – looks like JM was right about having attacking options on the bench and being able to rotate – for example, Moura and Bergwijn rotating to keep them fit and fresh.

Defence decent enough – Aurier got into a lot of promising positions so that was good to see from him – shame that we did not capitalise on any of them, but on another day, I’m sure we could do if he keeps arriving well to said positions and the attackers get sharper with every game.
Let’s be honest Wet Spam were poor but you can only beat what’s put in front of you and we were professional and pretty solid – never really looked in much doubt which was/is good to see especially at home.
Was Lo Celso Your MotM?
Good run out from the lads – now look forward to a decent rest and then the next game which I believe will be a tough one away at Sheff Utd – still fully expect us to beat them if we can progress onwards from tonight though.
Glad HK10 got his goal – vital for confidence and good that Sonny also laid on the assist. Shame Sonny was offside in the first half when he scored an otherwise good goal. Like I said before the match we’ve got the firepower it’s just a case of holding it together at the back as much as possible and forging clean sheets to give the forwards as much chance as possible to win us games – which invariably given their un-doubted quality/talent they will do more often than not!
Thumbs up from me – no problem/worries!
