Tottenham eventually turned up the heat on APOEL in this Champions League group game, with Harry Kane looking white hot on a warm Cyprus night that ended with a 3-0 Spurs win.
Before kick off the home team paid tribute to Ian Moores, who appeared for both clubs and his sons received an award out on the pitch before kick off. Spurs lined up with Trippier on the left, Aurier on the right, with both outside the middle midfield two. Son started with Alli and Vertonghen suspended, while Wanyama was still missing, along with Lamela. Eriksen was too sick to travel.
Harry Kane scuffed an early
volley wide after a defensive header went straight up in the air
inside two minutes, but a break by APOEL was broken up and Aurier
started a passing move to the left, then back to him on the right
and his low ball in looked to hit a defender's arm as he fell in the
box. The loose ball was hit at goal from close range by Son, but a
block took it wide for a corner.
Spurs almost got another,
with Son firing in a shot that was deflected wide after Kane's shot
was initially blocked and when Dier picked good pass out to Kane on
the left of the box, his first touch killed the ball dead. He looked
up and tried to play the ball square in front of goal to Dier,
through a defender's legs, but the keeper cut it out. He also had a
shot wide from range and having scored the perfect hat-trick, that
was his last involvement as GK Nkoudou came on to run at APOEL in
the remaining fifteen minutes.
