Ralph Hassenhuttl’s side fell behind again in the second period but kept on fighting and stole all three points with a late comeback, condemning Antonio Conte to his first home league defeat as Tottenham boss. Broja’s individual efforts were also lauded, with no player on the pitch registering more shots or winning more aerial duels in an impressive centre-forward display.
It was the same story three days later at Old Trafford as the Saints again had to recover from falling behind, this time Broja’s strike partner Che Adams firing them level to cancel out Jadon Sancho’s opener. The forward was a handful once more, causing problems with his movement and running in behind, as well as his presence in the box.
Head-to-head in Norfolk
Elsewhere in the Premier League, two team-mates in the Chelsea Academy went head-to-head at Carrow Road as Conor Gallagher’s Crystal Palace travelled to Norwich City, for whom Billy Gilmour was a second-half substitute.
The two sides shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw, with Wilfried Zaha’s missed penalty proving costly for the Eagles. Gallagher also played throughout the goalless weekend draw away at Brentford, which extended Palace’s winless league run to five matches. Gilmour, meanwhile, was back in the starting 11 for Norwich’s 4-0 home defeat at the hands of league leaders Manchester City.
