Richarlison scores twice to hand Antonio Conte their first win as Tottenham Hotspur coach after a 2-0 win over Marseille in their Champions League group stage opener in London on Wednesday night.

The North London outfit returned to European most prestigious club competitions after two years absent at their magnificent stadium.

Marseille had looked comfortable up until former Newcastle United defender Chancel Mbemba was sent off for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity just after half-time for wiping out Heung-Min Son.

Richarlison broke the deadlock in the 76th minute before Brazilian forward showed superb finishing skills to divert a Pierre-Emile Højbjerg cross home with another header that hauled Spurs to victory.
