FULL-TIME: SPURS 5-1 MURA
Nuno will breathe a huge sigh of relief after a nervy ten minutes at the start of the second half where it looked like Mura might be able to find a way back.
The Portuguese turned to his trusted front three, who delivered the goods and then some.
He would have preferred not to have needed them, but after earning a confidence boosting 5-1 plus a hat-trick for misfiring striker Harry Kane, he’ll be delighted with the night’s work.
He might be slightly disappointed that Spurs’ starting XI couldn’t get it done on their own, with Dane Scarlett and Bryan Gil both struggling to impose themselves on the game.
Dele had a good first half after scoring his penalty and Gio Lo Celso was superb throughout, showing the kind of creative spark he was signed for back in 2019.
