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.

That is a fantastic result. Didn't play well and got the win away in Europe.
On to City. Have to play a lot better than that! #COYS

Huge amount of credit to Pochettino for making such a big call to change that. Won us the game.

Well it was a bloody difficult watch, but given the first XI available, and the location, that is a very, very good win. Onwards! #COYS

Excellent result for us over in France where Monaco equalised against Leverkusen late on. We're now second in the group – one point off top.
