Simply put, the Spurs squad passed the difficult test put before them in this tricky Champions League fixture in Moscow against CSKA. Without 5 first-teamers, Spurs did enough to take away 3 points from the Russian champions.
Once again, it was the in-form Son Heung-Min who got the winner latching onto a Erik Lamela through-ball to slot pass the CSKA keeper. But once more it was the defensive resilience and the clean sheet that allowed this single goal to secure the victory.
A positive result that bodes well for the rest of the season. COYS!
