GOAL FLASH! Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Middlesbrough

(16′ mins): Spurs largely dominated the early exchanges. However, keeper, Paulo Gazzaniga, was forced to dirty his gloves, dealing with a close-range attempt from Lukas Nmecha. But within seconds the Championship side found themselves further behind – Erik Lamela waltzing through a static rearguard before prodding past Mejias, much to the approval of the home crowd.
