Tottenham wins on Højbjerg assist and spectacular pearl goal


Football. Pierre-Emile Højbjerg lined up for Harry Kane’s 2-0 scoring when Tottenham won 3-1 with a sure favorite victory over bottom side Sheffield United in the Premier League. Serge Aurier headed Tottenham in front after a corner kick from Son Heung-min, before Højbjerg’s pass in depth was converted to Kane. David McGoldrick reduced with a nice header, but the highlight of the match was the 3-1 score. A pass from Steven Bergwijn sailed over both the Sheffield defense and Tanguy Ndombele, but from a sharp angle Ndombele spectacularly lifted the ball over his head on his own into the side netting behind a futile bouncing Aaron Ramsdale.
