Tottenham Hotspur: Fernando Llorente sent Spurs through to the Champions League semi-final so should the striker be given more credit?

Fernando Llorente was the difference maker for Tottenham in their memorable Champions League match with Manchester City on Wednesday night.

His goal, bundled in from a corner and confirmed by VAR 17 minutes from time, would prove vital in sending Spurs through to a semi-final clash with Ajax.

Llorente scored the crucial goal to send Spurs through

It was his eighth goal of the season and while Llorente has not always been given credit by Spurs fans, he has contributed goals and assists when asked to deputise for Harry Kane.

Of course, Spurs are more potent when the World Cup Golden Boot winner is playing but, they have had to do without him twice this season and Llorente is the man they have turned to.
