Tottenham scored their first win under Nuno Espirito Santo by beating Colchester United 3-0 in a friendly.
Held by Leyton Orient as pre-season preparations began last Saturday, the Spurs offered a more encouraging show this time around.
Son Heung-min opened the scoring in the 11th minute with a simple shot after Steven Bergwijn had been played on goal.
Lucas Moura scored the 2-0 with a header at the near post on a corner kick three minutes later and Dele Alli helped his case for a bigger role in 2021-22 after falling out of favor under Jose Mourinho the last season.
He packed Son’s right-wing cross at home as Tottenham took a 3-0 lead in the 38th minute before the less experienced members of the Santo’s side were eliminated in the second half.
Tottenham go to MK Dons for their next friendly next Wednesday.
