Spurs overrun Real Madrid at Wembley

Spurs overrun Real Madrid at Wembley

England international Dele Alli broke the deadlock as he poked the ball over the line following great work from Harry Winks and Kieran Trippier to unlock the Real Madrid defence.

A 2-1 win at home to Athletic Bilbao back in 2011 was the last time the North London outfit beat a side from La Liga.

Mauricio Pochettino's side face the Spanish giants in the Champions League on Wednesday night, as the two sides lock horns with the prize being qualification for the last 16 after Christmas. Interestingly, both teams lost in their respective leagues last weekend by a goal margin.

The overall trend is also slightly concerning, particularly since he turned 30 in 2015.

Ahead of tonight's match, reports have it that Tottenham Hotspur point man, Harry Kane, trained with the first-team squad and will be assessed ready for the Wembley duel.

Dele Alli banged in two goals, with Eriksen adding the third goal.

'He's on the list, ' The Tottenham boss said when asked about Kane's availability in his pre-match press conference.

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen feels Harry Kane is in such fine form that he wouldn't swap him for any other player in the game. It could have been more today. Nevertheless, Hugo Lloris expertly dealt with Isco's low drive as it was the visitor's who offered the first meaningful attempt at goal.

By now, Alli had left behind the over-elaboration and loose passing to which he fell in the opening exchanges.

"He was training with group and was good - at same level as team". He has no intentions of leaving the star status and play for a club like Real.

Cause for concernCristiano Ronaldo could not find the net against Girona (Manu Fernandez/AP) The warning signs are still there, though - Ronaldo has fewer league goals in more appearances for Real this season than either Gareth Bale, also often criticised, or youngster Dani Ceballos who has already matched his tally from LaLiga last season.
