Tottenham top of Champions League group after beating Eintracht Frankfurt

Tottenham moved to the top of their Champions League group by coming from behind to win 3-2 at home to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Spurs made a terrible start, with a defensive mishap leading to Daichi Kamada putting the German side ahead after 14 minutes.

But the hosts stormed back to end a frenetic first half 3-1 up courtesy of Son Heung-min’s brace and a penalty from Harry Kane –  who later missed from the spot.

Eintracht always looked a threat – even after being reduced to 10 men when Tuta was sent off on the hour mark – and Faride Alidou pulled a goal back late on, before Kane blasted an injury-time penalty over the bar after Bryan Gil had been fouled by Hrvoje Smolčić.

The opening goal was a disaster for Spurs, with Eric Dier mis-controlling Cristian Romero’s ball across the box, leading to Sebastian Rode teeing up Kamada to score into an empty net.

The response was emphatic, with Son slotting home the equaliser after being put through by Kane, who put Spurs ahead from the spot after being fouled by Kristijan Jakic.

The third goal was a beauty – Son brilliantly volleyed in Pierre-Emile Højbjerg’s cross to send the home crowd wild.

Tuta was dismissed for a second yellow card following a foul on Son – after the referee initially seemed not to realise the Brazilian had already been booked.

Tottenham: Lloris; Romero, Dier (Sanchez 78), Lenglet; Royal, Hojbjerg (Gil 85), Bentancur (Bissouma 67), Sessegnon; Richarlison (Skipp 67), Kane, Son (Moura 86).
