Former Tottenham striker Fernando Llorente continued where he left off in last seasons Champions League by scoring his first Napoli goal in their group stage victory against Liverpool on Tuesday evening.

The Spaniard, who marked his debut for the Italian giants on Saturday by claiming an assist for Dries Mertens against Sampdoria, once more made an impact as a late substitute.
Less than 10 minutes after Mertens put Napoli in front, Llorente pounced on an uncharacteristic mistake by Virgil Van Dijk to coolly slot home past Adrian to send his side top of the group and seal a 2-0 win over Jurgen Klopp’s men.

The 34-year-old admitted pre-match that he wanted revenge for Tottenham’s final defeat to the Reds in Madrid back in June, a game where Llorente was a second-half substitute, and the World Cup winner got his wish in more ways than one.
It was Llorente’s third Champions League goal of 2019 after scoring in Spurs’ run to the final in their knockout games against Dortmund and Man City and this one that went down extremely well with Tottenham fans.
