Harry Kane, Erik Lamela and Victor Janssen all got on the score-sheet as Spurs thrashed a helpless Inter Milan 6-1 at the Oslo 20 arena in Norway.
It was a dominating display from Mauricio Pochettino’s men from the start. Inter Milan never looked liked they stood a chance against an extremely strong Spurs side. An early goal from Harry Kane opened the scoring for the North Londoners and there were no looking back after that. Ivan Perisic did manage to pull one back with a superb left footed effort, but the second half would be disastrous for the Italian giants. Delle Alli, Erik Lamela, Victor Janssen and youngster Shayon Harrison all helped themselves with a goal each.
Speaking after the game in his post match interview, Roberto Mancini said that nobody liked to lose by such a margin, but acknowledged some positives from the game. He said “Despite the result, however, the first half was excellent. It was the first time we’d had all the players together and they did some good things.” The Italian spoke of how his side capitulated after the 50th minute and how their errors cost them. “From the 50-minute mark onwards we made too many errors and the final scoreline is the product of that.”

Janssen will come off the bench and score a brace against Chelsea to win us the league in the next three seasons.

Btw, don’t mind my boy Perisic scoring. Hopefully we sign him x

Those Banega passes to Perisic are going to be amazing this season. Ansaldi? Another turd of a fullback.

That’s an excellent goal by Perisic, but Vorm can’t be beaten at his near post there.

Eriksen’s touches have been super classy. If it was Ozil somebody would of made a 15minute skill show video by now.
