Tottenham recovered from an early blow, conceding against Lion City Sailors, to win comfortably in the final game of their Asian tour.

The Lilywhites won 5-1 to take home with them the Tiger Cup from Singapore, following a tour that began with a game against West Ham before torrential rain cancelled the Leicester City clash.

They left Thailand without playing a game but Singapore showed their sharpness, with Brazilian forward Richarlison grabbing a hat trick that will do his confidence a world good.

Harry Kane, linked with an exit from the club, scored from the spot, with Giovani Lo Celso scoring the other as Ange Postecoglou secured his first win and a pre-season trophy.

The only downside of the day’s work would have been the injury to Bissouma, which the boss said might just be down to fatigue. He told reporters after the game: “He did all the runs at the end. Think he was exhausted. I haven’t picked up anything from the medics.

“It’s fair to say they’ll be exhausted after what we’ve done in the last three days but I don’t think there’s any issues.”

The game against Lion City was quickly arranged after Jose Mourinho’s AS Roma pulled out of an arranged match at the last minute, with Spurs needing the local side to step in and give them a good test.

Tottenham will now return to the United Kingdom where they host Ukrainian side Shakhtar Donetsk before travelling to Spain to play Barcelona in their final pre-season game.
