good morning -

How many of you missed Champions League football? You don’t get emotion like that watching Pacos de Ferreira! So let’s revisit some of Wednesday’s best moments!

Richarlison embraces his family

Where else is there to start but here? With the Spurs Cypriot flag displaying in the background, an emotional Richarlison embraces his family after scoring a brace against Marseille.

He was the man of the match yesterday, undoubtedly. And what a beautiful moment he shared with his loved ones. How lucky are we to have it recorded.

Antonio Conte embraces Richarlison

How sweet is this moment between player and manager?

Richarlison rightfully deserves all the praise after Tottenham’s 2-0 victory against Marseille.

It’s hard to believe a player of this calibre started on the bench for Spurs this season. How could Conte possibly drop him now? Why not play a front four against City?

And to think, a year ago Richarlison’s main job was helping Everton avoid relegation.

Cry your heart out, Richarlison. Cry out those tears of joy
