Harry Winks scores a stunner as Tottenham smash Ludogorets 4 – 0. The Premier League leaders, tied on nine points at the top of Group J but second to Antwerp due to an inferior head-to-head record, can seal qualification with victory away to Austrian side LASK next Thursday.
Carlos Vinicius scored his first two Tottenham goals as Jose Mourinho‘s side remained on course to reach the Europa League knockout stage with a comfortable victory against Ludogorets.
Spurs repeated the dominance they displayed in the 3-1 win in Bulgaria three weeks ago as Brazilian Vinicius, on a season-long loan from Benfica, scored twice before half-time – his second arriving courtesy of Dele Alli’s selfless pass across goal.
Harry Winks added a stunning third from 50 yards as he caught out Ludogorets keeper Plamen Iliev midway through the second half, before Vinicius turned provider for Lucas Moura.
Only Tanguy Ndombele retained his starting place from Saturday’s victory over Manchester City, with Mourinho opting to rest key players before Sunday’s Premier League meeting with third-placed Chelsea.
It was a fifth straight win for Spurs, whose shock defeat by Antwerp – their opponents in the final group game – remains their only defeat in 16 matches in all competitions.
