Tottenham Hotspur picked up their first Premier League win since Boxing Day as they beat Norwich City 2-1 at home thanks to goals from Dele Alli and Son Heung-min. New signings Gedson Fernandes and Giovani Lo Celso reacted on Instagram.
Jose Mourinho fielded an attacking side as he looked to pick up three points for the first time in their last five league games. Lo Celso started alongside Harry Winks in midfield, while Erik Lamela, Son, Alli and Lucas Moura all started in attack.
Spurs took the lead through England midfielder Alli as a swift move down the right flank opened Norwich up, and Alli got across his man to convert Serge Aurier’s low cross. A mistake from Ryan Sessegnon allowed Norwich back in, though.
Indeed, Sessegnon fouled his England Under-21 teammate Max Aarons in the penalty area and that saw Teemu Pukki score from the spot with just 20 minutes left. However, Spurs were not done there.
Another attack down the right flank, where Spurs were most dangerous throughout, saw the excellent Lo Celso slide a perfectly-weighted pass into Alli. His effort deflected into the air and to the back post, where Son headed home from a yard out.
It is a huge win for Spurs and alleviates the pressure on both the squad and Mourinho. With Man United suffering defeat at home to Burnley, they climb to sixth and sit on level 34 points. Both Lo Celso and substitute Gedson reacted on Instagram.
