Tottenham pair could raise Nuno Espirito Santo's mood and fortunes after NS Mura win

Santo made several changes for this contest, resting the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min.

However, the Lilywhites, perhaps aided by the quality of the opposition, attacked with greater speed, directness, and precision, particularly in the opening stages.

Tottenham did take their foot of the gas after Lo Celso’s goal, but the 25-year-old and Alli continued to threaten on the break.

Bryan Gil also looked threatening on his favoured left-wing.

The summer singing from Sevilla recently said his favoured position was operating on the left flank, and with Son rested, he was able to show what he can do.

The early scare from Kous’ fierce strike may have prompted the introductions of Kane, Son, and Moura, but it would be unfair to suggest this move was more of a punishment than an insurance.
