A perfect ending to an imperfect game
It was absolute bedlam. The fans were going crazy in the stands and on the pitch the Tottenham Hotspur players were swarming from everywhere.
Captain Son Heung-min sprinted off the bench to join in, goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario ran the length of the turf to leap into the celebrations and Spurs' young Dutch giant Micky van de Ven picked up Pedro Porro clean off his feet and lifted him into the air before roaring towards the west stand.
If you want to look at how much of a tight-knit squad Ange Postecoglou has already created you might only look at the players who all came off the bench to make such a huge impact but you could also peer across at those not even involved on the day.
Youngster Alejo Veliz went crazy when the goal went in, screaming and yanking the advertising hoarding back and forth in front of him with Bryan Gil, while teenage defender Ashley Phillips bellowed his delight alongside them.
On the other side of Veliz, Rodrigo Bentancur was equally ecstatic while trying not to spill the drink of maté he had in his hand and beside him Giovani Lo Celso pumped his fists into the air over and over again.
After the final whistle, Eric Dier, Fraser Forster, Porro and Son all ran for Richarlison before the players on the pitch jogged in a line holding hands towards the south stand to enjoy a moment with the fans who had pushed them on, all of the team pushing Richarlison to the front and pointing at him to ensure he soaked up a huge impactful occasion after his recent tough time.
