Let’s take a look at the Player Ratings for the Europa League fixture between Ludogorets and Tottenham Hotspurs.

Harry Kane netted his 200th goal for Tottenham following their satisfying victory against Ludogorets. Jose Mourinho’s side is back on track with six points on the Group J table in the Europa League. This makes Spurs sit on the second spot after this 3-1 win below leaders Antwerp.

The game was brought to light in the early stages with Kane missing two attempts. However, in the 13th minute, a perfectly placed corner kick by Lucas Moura met the England captain’s header. Furthermore, Kane returned the favor by linking up with Gareth Bale to square it to Moura who made a simple tap-in for Tottenham’s second.

Though the tussle came back to life as Ludogorets snatched one back from the north London side. Fortunately, a deflection hurled the ball in the air for Claudiu Keseru who banged in a volley past Joe Hart in the 50th minute.

But, Mourinho’s clever substitutions put icing on the cake for Tottenham. Star man Son Heung-Min came of the bench only to assist Giovanni Lo Celso for the third goal of the match. It only took 15 minutes for the Korean to make his contribution to Tottenham’s win.
