Tottenham fans got a glimpse into the future last night – with all three of their summer signings on the pitch for the first time in their impressive 4-0 Champions League victory over Red Star Belgrade.
Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso played 90 and 86 minutes respectively, whilst Ryan Sessegnon marked his European debut with an excellent assist for Christian Eriksen’s goal.
The Frenchman was his usual swaggy-self in midfield, whilst Sessegnon showed encouraging signs on the left, but it was the performance of full debutant Lo Celso, that caught the eye.
From minute one, the Argentine looked in the mood to make up for lost time. Prior to this, Lo Celso had made just five substitute appearances since joining from Real Betis and has endured some frustrating times through injury, but the midfielder stole the show with an all-action display, which included his first Spurs goal in the Serbian capital.
After a campaign of ups and many downs, this was a bright point and the performance and result left fans excited about what’s to come.
Here are some of the best responses.
Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso are the future of Tottenham Hotspur football club.

Our 2 summer signings, Lo Celso & Ndombele were the best players on the pitch by a mile.
Criminal if they both don’t start against Sheffield Utd at the weekend.#COYS
