Spurs started brightly and found their opener shortly before the 20-minute mark when debutant Carlos Vinicius squared for his Brazil countryman Lucas Moura, who beat LASK keeper Alexander Schlager for the early lead.

Gareth Bale, making his second appearance and first start since joining Spurs on loan from Real Madrid, helped the hosts double their lead 10 minutes later when his cross was redirected into the LASK goal by defender Andres Andrade to make it 2-0.

LASK came close to getting on the scoresheet shortly before half-time, but Joe Hart made a quality save from Andreas Gruber’s well-struck shot to preserve Tottenham’s two-goal lead going into the break.

Tottenham added a third to put the game away in the 84th minute when Vinicius notched his second assist to set up substitute Son Heung-min to leave Spurs atop Group J after securing all three points.
