Tottenham remain in the hunt for three trophies this season after leaving Italy with a hard-fought draw in their Europa League round of 32 tie against Fiorentina.

Nacer Chadli had put Spurs ahead with a dubious penalty before Federico Bernardeschi's deflected second-half effort sealed a closely-contested 1-1 stalemate - which leaves both sides fancying their chances in the return leg next week.

Dele Alli was again inspirational, especially in the opening half, but he was also lucky to avoid a red card for a kick aimed at a Fiorentina defender.

In the build-up to this tie, Pochettino insisted he still had designs on winning the Europa League as well as competing for the FA Cup and Premier League back home.

But, in making seven changes from the weekend win over Manchester City which left them second in the table, the Spurs head coach was putting faith in his squad to deliver when called upon.

So who impressed? Was Alli the stand-out player? Who could have done better for the away side? We take a look...
