Goals & Highlights As Spurs Join Champions League Last 16 [Video]
By Joe Fish -

Tottenham Hotspur made it two wins from two under Jose Mourinho with a 4-2 victory over Olympiacos last night. But again we did it the hard way.

Needing only a draw to qualify for the Champions League last 16, by virtue of Bayern Munich thrashing hapless Red Star Belgrade, we were 2-0 down inside 19 minutes to a team with only one point from four Group B matches.

The Greeks’ second goal from a corner emphasised the work that Mourinho has to do in re-organising a defence that has lost all sense of solidity.

Things could have panned out much differently had equally slack work from Olympiacos not gifted Dele Alli a tap-in during first-half stoppage time.

The goal was a case of right place, right time but it was another encouraging performance by Dele who was key to the second-half turnaround.

Some quick-thinking by Serge Aurier – and a ball boy – allowed Lucas Moura to square for Harry Kane to equalise within five minutes of the restart.

Aurier completed the comeback in the 73rd minute with a back-post volley Kane would have been proud of, and the striker got a second to become the fastest player to 20 Champions League goals – in only 24 matches – glancing home a cross from a bloke who looked an awful lot like Christian Eriksen.

Check out the BT Sport highlights below. Aurier’s goal at 5.30 is definitely worth seeing:

    anyone fancy flagging this to Harry H – we all know how much he loves an Alli story…I cant believe he is making excuses about his body at 23, physiologically speaking its in its peak!!
    It wont let me post link – basically Alli told the times – “Now I am older my body can’t do what it used to,”
