Tottenham triumphed at the San Siro in a bad tempered encounter with AC Milan. The tackles were flying in and a fair few players were guilty of falling to the floor with incredible ease and on more than one occasion the game threatened to boil over.
Both sides has chances and Rafael Van der Vaart went close for the visitors and Mario Yepes tested Heurelho Gomes with a close range header. Gennaro Gattuso was getting more and more aggravated and had a run in with Spurs assistant boss Joe Jordan.
Vedran Corluka was stretchered off on the hour and whilst AC Milan maintained an advantage in possession terms, Redknapp’s men always looked more dangerous on the break and had more clear cut chances than their hosts.
Aaron Lennon was having a great game and was sent clear and the speedy England winger beat his man and calmly fed Peter Crouch who netted to secure a famous win.
