Tottenham Hotspur have taken a big step towards the knockout stages of the Champions League with an impressive 4-0 victory away to Red Star Belgrade.

A Giovani Lo Celso goal on his first start since joining on loan from Real Betis sent Spurs on their way to the win, with a Son Heung-min double putting the game beyond doubt in the second half. Substitute Christian Eriksen then rounded off the scoring late in the match.

Mauricio Pochettino's side have now moved on to seven points in Group B after four matches.

Although still adrift from Bayern Munich, they are a comfortable four points ahead of tonight's opponents.

A home match against struggling Olympiacos on the next matchday will give them an opportunity to book their place in the last 16 of the competition.

 

Although they produced an accomplished team performance tonight, it was the display of Lo Celso that had some fans really purring, delighted by his contribution in attacking midfield.

As shown by WhoScored, he had a busy night, making more touches than anyone else on the pitch, with 102 in total.

Also contributing with two key passes and winning all five of his attempted tackles, as well as his goal, it was a very good shift from the 23-year-old.

His set-piece ability also won plaudits from some fans, noting he was more effective than Eriksen has been with that task recently.
