Last night, Tottenham tore Roma apart in San Diego. The Lillywhites had little mercy when they smashed four first-half goals by Antonio Mirante in the Italian side’s net. Fernando Llorente bagged two of those and the fans are calling for a resurgence from the Spaniard this season.

The big striker was brought into the club last summer as a replacement for Vincent Janssen who was shipped off to Fenerbahce on-loan. Unfortunately, Llorente failed to impress in his sole season as a Lilywhite and most fans were led to believe that the ex-Juventus man would be sent on his way to whoever was willing to take him off our the club’s hands.
That hasn’t been the case though, and now, after a strong performance against Roma, the Spaniard may just have played his way back into contention for Mauricio Pochettino. The World Cup-winning striker is worth having around for his winning mentality alone and if he can pitch in with some big goals in Harry Kane’s absence then that’s even better.
You can see what the Spurs fans’ make of Llorente’s performance here:
