Nabil Bentaleb was on target for Tottenham Hotspur against Newcastle United in the quarter-final of the League Cup.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Nabil Bentaleb has admitted that he did not know what to do after scoring his first goal for the club this evening.

The Algeria international broke his duck for Spurs at White Hart Lane in the quarter-final of the League Cup against Newcastle United.

Bentaleb took advantage of Newcastle goalkeeper Jak Alnwick's mistake to slam home from close range.

The 20-year-old, who seems to have established himself in Mauricio Pochettino’s starting line-up, has admitted his confusion after the goal, which was his first in 34th competitive appearance for Spurs.

Second-half goals from Nacer Chadli, Harry Kane and Roberto Soldado saw Tottenham wrap up a 4-0 win against Newcastle and progress to the semi-finals of the League Cup.
