In the opening Europa League group-stage game as Gareth Bale and Carlos Vinicius showed plenty of promise on Thursday night, Tottenham eased to a comfortable 3-0 victory over LASK.
After letting a three-goal lead slip to draw 3-3 with West Ham last weekend, Jose Mourinho needed a result and a performance to go along with it, and the hosts put in a professional display at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Carlos Vinicius assisted two goals as Spurs labored a bit but did not cough up another multi-goal lead.
In 18 minutes Lucas Moura scored and an own goal doubled Spurs advantage before Heung-min Son completed the scoring late in North London.
As Sergio Reguilon cued the rush for the first goal and Matt Doherty dominated the right flank, the fullbacks were the stars for Tottenham.
Giovani Lo Celso made a cameo and Son played the final half-hour for Gareth Bale while Jose Mourinho was able to rest Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld.
