Ludogorets 1-3 Tottenham: Harry Kane scores 200th goal for Spurs in much-improved European showing

Thursday 5 November 2020 19:53, UK
Harry Kane scored his 200th goal for Tottenham in a much-improved Europa League showing for Jose Mourinho’s men as they dispatched Ludogorets 3-1.
Mourinho questioned his players’ attitude after a much-changed team lost in Antwerp last week but Spurs had intensity to their play from the off in Bulgaria.
On his 300th appearance, Kane’s landmark moment came when he headed home a Lucas Moura corner before he repaid the favour by setting up Moura for 2-0.
Claudiu Keseru gave the hosts a glimmer of hope when reducing the deficit after the break, but the Premier League side were always in control and Heung-Min Son took just 17 seconds to make his impact off the bench, setting up the impressive Giovani Lo Celso to score the third.
Tottenham: Hart (7), Doherty (7), Alderweireld (7), Dier (7), Davies (7), Winks (7), Sissoko (7), Lo Celso (8), Bale (7), Lucas (8), Kane (8)
Subs: Vinicius (5), Son (8), Ndombele (6), Hojbjerg (7), Bergwijn (6)
