Tottenham’s 2-1 win over AEL Limassol in last night’s Europa League qualifier was engineered by Erik Lamela who climbed off the bench to provide the assists for Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane. After the match, head coach Mauricio Pochettino refused to single out any single player for praise but he did reserve a mention for Erik and the rest of the substitutes.

“It was a tough game, the conditions were difficult and it was an important win,” said Mauricio on the club’s official website.

“We know that Zenit came here and lost 1-0 in the Champions League. It was a difficult game and I’m happy with the players. In the end it was an important win and to get another victory.

“All the players played well, it’s difficult for me to say one name. Lamela, Chadli and Mousa all made an impact and that’s important. I’m very pleased for Harry and Roberto, strikers always want to score and they both scored. It was good to win the game.”

After facing a 1-0 deficit for much of the game, Spurs now take a relatively comfortable 2-1 lead into the second leg which takes place at White Hart Lane next Thursday – kick off 7.45pm.

    • Didn’t happen. We just don’t play them, and they do not fear us. I hope the players get up for the derby game, if not, its not worth coming back to this site to see you lol.

      • Not happy at seeing spurs lose. There’s something definitely wrong with me, but then again a liverpool win doesn’t bode well for our top four chances. Also I will always be here. Gloating after beating your team has never done me any harm.

  3. So after beating 2 poor teams the bubble has burst and our new manager is blaming the ref about the penalty, lets get it right here the penalty was a penalty if you pull a player back its a foul rose again out of position for the first goal and the 3rd goal townsend being to cocky on the ball the bloke is shit capoure far to casual and kaboul to slow these four should be outed asap.
