The match, marked by a dramatic turnaround in the second half, showcased Tottenham’s determination and skill.

Eberechi Eze’s opener had initially put Tottenham on the back foot, raising concerns of consecutive defeats for Ange Postecoglou’s side.

However, the momentum shifted dramatically with two quick goals in the second half, turning the tide in Tottenham’s favor.

The breakthrough came in the 78th minute when Timo Werner, making his mark with his inaugural goal for the club, expertly converted Brennan Johnson’s cross.

This was swiftly followed by Cristian Romero’s decisive header in the 80th minute, capitalizing on James Maddison’s precise delivery.

Captain Son Heung-min, demonstrating his leadership, sealed the victory with a sweeping finish just a minute from time, securing three crucial points for Tottenham.
