Tottenham began their Europa League campaign with victory over Qarabag as Son Heung-min shone on his home debut.
Debutant Kieran Trippier conceded an early penalty, converted by Richard Almeida, before Son prodded home from close range for his first of two goals.
Son swept home minutes later after lovely footwork from the impressive Nigerian born midfielder Dele Alli as Spurs came from behind.
Erik Lamela was unlucky to strike the post after an Alli through ball but added a third with a chipped finish.
Son may have scored two goals on his home debut but Alli was the real star performer for the strength of his all-round display.
Alli could not top a fine personal display with a goal as he saw a late shot dribble past the post but Spurs saw out stoppage time to open their Group J campaign with all three points.
