It was vital that Tottenham got back to winning ways against Southampton on Saturday.
What should have been a stroll in the park against Colchester on Tuesday night ended up being something of an embarrassment. Spurs were beaten on penalties by the League Two side after failing to score during the initial 90 minutes.
Against the Saints though, they had a better day. Mauricio Pochettino’s men grabbed a 2-1 victory courtesy of goals from Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Kane in the first half. Danny Ings was the only man able to respond for the visitors.
The celebration for the former was rather funny. Ndombele, along with teammate Serge Aurier – who was later sent off – decided to mock VAR following the strike.
The moment clearly went down well with the north London outfit’s supporters, who enjoyed the light-hearted interaction. They took to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
Aurier was stupid yesterday but his VAR celebration with Ndombele. ???

– Lovely celebration by Ndombele. ???
– Ndombele still needs to work on his positional play. The midfield looks a soft touch.
– Fans carried Lloris through that game. After a nightmare start.
– The one time when there was good movement by Son. Eriksen and Kane. They scored.

Now that massive stress headache of a game is over, can we all appreciate how good Ndombele’s celebration was, but also how funny it would’ve been if his goal did end up getting ruled out by VAR?
