Tottenham Hotspur ran out 5-0 winners in the Champions League last night, with Mauricio Pochettino's side picking up a much needed victory.

Jermaine Jenas has told BT Sport, during their coverage of Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League match against Red Star Belgrade, that he could see how happy the players were as they walked off the pitch last night.

Spurs picked up a much needed victory in the Champions League, as they strolled past their Serbian opponents.

Tottenham won 5-0 and put in a strong performance, as they cruised to three points in Europe.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have taken on board a lot of criticism in recent weeks.

 

But Jenas thinks that a weight was lifted off the shoulders of the Tottenham players last night, and it was evident in their reaction at full-time.

“I was just looking at them as they walked off the pitch,” he said.

“It’s been a miserable month, they would have been hurt. They are not happy with themselves, you take those feelings home and it affects every day life.

“But there were big smiles as they walked off the pitch, good energy going into the dressing room. That’ll spill over into training throughout the week.”

Both Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son scored braces for Spurs last night, while Erik Lamela also got on the scoresheet.

The hope is that the victory can be the turning point in what has been a poor season for Tottenham so far.

Spurs have looked so far short of their best, but last night’s performance was a reminder of the quality that they posses.

Tottenham’s next match comes against Liverpool at Anfield, and if they can pick up a result there, then confidence will surely come flooding back to Pochettino’s men.
