Jan Vertonghen's deflected shot put us into the lead inside three minutes as we returned to Premier League action, but Seb Larsson’s free-kick just after the half-hour mark restored parity.

Harry Kane hit the post in first half stoppage time, but it took us until the 88th minute to find a winner as Christian Eriksen finished off a fast break with a shot that went in off the upright.

Hugo Lloris produced a fine late save to deny Danny Graham, before Vertonghen - with goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon up for a corner at the other end - was denied another goal when his effort on the break was chalked off for off-side.
