Son Heung-min scored one and set up two as Tottenham advanced to the Europa League play-off round after a scare against Shkendija in North Macedonia.

Fresh from scoring four goals against Southampton last Sunday, Son turned provider to set up Argentine Erik Lamela to calmly score the opener.

Vocal Hart makes himself heard

Hart had little to do on his first competitive outing since strengthening Tottenham’s goalkeeping options in the summer.

He was beaten by Shkendija’s one and only shot on target but Nafiu’s finish, early in the second half, was spectacular and there was little the 33-year-old could do about it.

Despite a quiet debut, Hart made his presence felt in the behind-closed-doors tie in Skopje.

His voice boomed around the ground as the veteran of 75 England caps barked orders to his team-mates in front of him.

Hart has work to do if he is to displace Hugo Lloris as first choice.

But having arrived on a free after being released by Burnley, he could be a shrewd addition by Mourinho as Spurs chase a first major trophy since 2008.
