Watch: Tanguy Ndombele beats four players to create Tottenham goal
Tanguy Ndombele continued his revival in a Tottenham shirt with a key role in creating Spurs’ second goal in the Europa League clash with Ludogorets.
Big things were expected from Ndombele after his club-record £63million deal from Lyon in the summer of 2019, but the midfielder struggled for form and fitness and was publicly criticised by Jose Mourinho on numerous occasions.
The 23-year-old is making up for lost time this term and once again showed the attributes that make him such an exciting player in the first half as Spurs hosted Ludogorets.
Summer signing Carlos Vinicius put Tottenham ahead in the 16th minute, and the striker got his second 18 minutes later courtesy of some fine work from Ndombele in the build-up.
He held off four tackles before seeing his shot parried into the path of Dele Alli, who squared the ball to Vinicius to tap home.
