Video: Sergio Reguilon shows he’s not distracted by Covid-19 rule break with fine assist for Moussa Sissoko as Spurs take lead vs Brentford

Tottenham Hotspur have taken the lead in the 11th minute of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Brentford, thanks to a pinpoint cross from under-fire star Sergio Reguilon.

Eric Dier shifted the ball to the summer’s signing from Real Madrid, with Reguilon left in plenty of space deep on the left-wing.

The Spaniard made Brentford pay for that oversight as he controlled the ball, looked up and picked out the brilliant surging run of Moussa Sissoko with a wonderful delivery.

The ball evaded Ethan Pinnock with Sissoko capitalising by steering the ball into the top corner after.

Reguilon’s assist shows that he’s not let his off-the-field trouble hinder his performances on the pitch, the ace broke strict Covid-19 guidelines to enjoy a star-studded Christmas celebration alongside teammates Erik Lamela and Giovani Lo Celso, as well as West Ham playmaker Manuel Lanzini.

Reguilon’s actions were a particular kick in the teeth to Jose Mourinho, who heartwarmingly gifted the full-back a cracking cut of meat thinking he’d be alone on Christmas, the Athletic report that Spurs have since fined their rule-breaking trio.

Mourinho’s side haven’t relented after the early opener, they now look firmly in control of their Championship counterparts and destined for a spot in the Carabao Cup final.

Reguilon actually featured for Spurs on December 27 against Wolves.
