Tottenham knew only a win would do in Russia after a slow start to their Champions League campaign.

Defeat to Monaco at Wembley put Spurs in a tough position, but a crucial 1-0 over CSKA Moscow has given the Londoners hope of progressing to the knockout stages.

Heung-Min Son scored the only goal of the night, latching onto a clever Erik Lamela pass to slot home midway through the second half.

The visitors took their time to grow into the game, but gradually became the better side and fully deserved all three points.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result and performance.



  1. I feel for Janssen, much as I did for Soldado…why play one up front when the players ‘in the second row’ simply have no idea how to play off a central pivot.
    Let’s face it Gillingham presented more of an attacking threat than CSKA…
    HK doesn’t play up front…look at his ‘heat maps’ from last season and he’s closer to the halfway line than the box for the most part…
    I’m pleased Lamela provided the assist…it goes some way to offset the number of times he gave the ball away…
    Roll on Sunday….

  2. If that game ended as a draw I feel we would have been slating Eriksen, gave the ball away lot , didn’t have the commitment in the tackle he needs if he wants to keep his place. good showing from nkoudu , lamela and dele were not on their games but with more to come from them. Overall great result despite a very average performance against a poor team , once Dembele is back the performance level of the others will increase and this season could be even better than last.
