Nacer Chadli described his two-goal show against QPR as one of his best performances in a Spurs shirt.

The Belgium international scored five goals in 34 appearances in all competitions last term and was on target again in his first start this season - in a convincing 4-0 win against Rangers in the Premier League at the Lane.

Nacer controlled Emmanuel Adebayor’s cross and dinked over Robert Green to open the scoring 12 minutes, Eric Dier doubled the lead on 30 and Nacer provided the finish worthy of a long spell of possession on 37 minutes.

Urged to contintue pushing forward by Mauricio Pochettino at half-time, Nacer was involved in the fourth goal, a sweeping move down the left as Danny Rose squared for Ade to convert.

“I’m very pleased with the goals but everyone did well and of course, it’s good when we create a lot of chances and it was a good spectacle for the fans,” said Nacer.

“We started with high pressure, had a lot of the ball and created lots of chances. At half-time we had a conversation, we wanted to score more goals and we started the second half strong as well.

“That’s what everyone wants to see when they watch Tottenham. We did very well and I’m very happy to score two goals.

“It’s been a good start, everyone is pleased with this result and now we have a game against AEL on Thurday and then Liverpool on Sunday. The players are happy and the fans were fantastic as well.”
