Spurs are taking part in one hell of an about face with today’s UEFA Cup match with Dinamo Zagreb further showing the change in direction at White Hart Lane. Behind a Darren Bent hat trick and Tom Huddlestone’s second half goal, Tottenham whipped Dinamo Zaberb 4-0 at the Lane. Having fallen in a sorry way to Udinese just a fortnight ago, Spurs have reversed their fortunes in the UEFA Cup and now sit comfortably in second position behind the Italian club (who today beat Spartak Moscow, 2-1).
Other English clubs were also successful in their second UEFA Cup matches as Aston Villa defeated Slavia Prague 1-0 and Manchester City held of FC Twente 3-2. Other big clubs playing today included AC Milan defeating Braga 1-0 on Ronaldinho’s 90th minute winner and Ajax winning at home against MSK Zilina, 1-0.
