Tottenham finally threw the Wembley monkey from their backs with an accomplished home win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

A Harry Kane brace following Heung-min Son’s opener helped Spurs to a 3-1 win to kick off a tough-looking Group H in perfect fashion.

The result sent Lilywhites fans wild, not least former player Micky Hazard, who took to Twitter to both express his delight with the performance and mock close rivals Arsenal:

The Gunners are not playing Champions League football for the first time in Arsene Wenger’s tenure as manager, having only managed to qualify for the Europa League last season.

That fact, coupled with an impressive outing against Dortmund is the perfect recipe for Spurs fans.

The only blemish on what was a superb night for the north Londoners, was Jan Vertonghen’s late sending off for a second bookable offence.

That dismissal aside, Spurs were treated to three goals, a rock-solid defensive display and the first sightings of two new arrivals.

Serge Aurier made his first start for the club at right-back, and impressed, while Fernando Llorente was a late replacement for Kane.

In the other game in Group H, Real Madrid ran out comfortable 3-0 winners over APOEL. Meanwhile, Spurs return to Wembley quite quickly, with Swansea the next visitors on Saturday in the Premier League.
