Tottenham opened their Europa League campaign with a 3-1 win over Qarabag. Son Heung-Min scored twice on his home debut while Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier and Clinton N’Jie made their first appearances for the club.

Trippier gave away a penalty that saw Spurs go behind early on, but the hosts rallied before the break, taking the lead through two Son goals.

Erik Lamela added a third late on to seal the victory. There was plenty of reaction to the final goal on Twitter, as well as some much-deserved praise for Tottenham’s standout player – Dele Alli.

Here’s the third goal and the best of the tweets.



  1. Loved the one touch passing – Poch has a great vision. Lams and alli combining were great to watch. shame we now have to go back to the rustic stodgy defences of the other premiership clubs which stifle our young talent. but lams an alli nd the other thoughtful, creative youngsters will find a way second half of the season.
