Spurs all but sealed their place in the Group stages of the Europa League but the star of last night’s 5-0 victory was Andros Townsend who had been brought in for Nacer Chadli on the left. Andros opened the scoring with a long range effort on 12 minutes before assisting with the second for Paulinho and laying on the third for Roberto Soldado in what proved to be a comfortable 90 minutes.
Danny Rose and Soldado with his second, completed the scoring but the attention fell on Andros for his Man of the Match display.
“Every time I get a chance I have to continue to be affective in matches, to score goals and make assists,” the winger said after the game.
“Hopefully if I get another opportunity I’ll do the same.”
When Tbilisi came out of the hat it looked a tricky tie for us but the home side were pretty poor over the 90 minutes. Having said that, Andros Townsend was exceptional and while he may be no Gareth Bale, a starting slot against Swansea on Sunday is the least he deserves.
