Tottenham fans most likely idea they had seen the remainder of Serge Gnabry after the German left opponents Arsenal in 2016 yet he was back furiously in north London Tuesday to help Bayern Munich whip Spurs 7-2 in the Champions League.
The 24-year-old scored four second-half objectives in an eye-watering Group B result against a hapless Spurs side which yielded after the half-time whistle.
The outcome, met by a chorale of boos from the home help, loaded further wretchedness on Mauricio Pochettino’s group which has, in truth, battled to discover structure for quite a while.
It had all appeared to be unique in the foremost half when Heung-Min Son gave Spurs the lead yet two heavenly objectives from Joshua Kimmich and Robert Lewandowski guaranteed the guests went into the break 2-1 ahead. What at that point pursued was scarcely credible given how even the opening time frame had been.
Prods a shadow
Niko Kovac’s side started navigating the riggings in the subsequent half and was before long murmuring against a Spurs side without certainty and thoughts.
Lewandowski got a prop to compliment Gnabry’s take as a year ago’s beaten finalist was mostly overwhelmed.
Harry Kane scored a punishment to take the game back to 4-2 yet even that couldn’t stem the Bayern attack with various Spurs fans spilling out of the club’s fresh out of the box new arena before the last whistle had gone.
The harming rout happened under pouring precipitation, was the first run through Tottenham had ever yielded seven objectives at home.
“We are baffled. Each and every touch from Bayern was clinical. They scored with each touch. It is difficult to acknowledge. You need to proceed onward,” said Pochettino after a protracted post-coordinate question with his players.
“This kind of circumstance you need to confront. It is intense, and you should be solid and continue onward. Remain together, help one another and be all together.
“When you get this sort of result, it is critical to bob back and trusts in yourself. It is the best way to recoup.”
Capability from the gathering stage is still especially workable for Spurs, yet one must think about what such a fierce pounding will do to a side previously battling in the English Premier League.
In the interim, in spite of this being an alleged change year for Bayern, the Germans appear to be a genuine prospect in this present season’s opposition.
