Cristiano Ronaldo may have pulled off the greatest skill move of his career on Saturday for Real Madrid against Espanyol. The Portuguese attacker, with the match at 0-0, went with the elastico nutmeg. Take a look: Holy moly. That is something else. To beat a player with the elastico or a nutmeg is one thing, but to pull them both off? Especially on the endline? That was a piece of magic.

Having picked virtually a full-strength team against Gent on Thursday night, it seemed reasonable to predict that Spurs’ manager would make a number of changes at Craven Cottage today, freshening up his side while taking the opportunity to have another look at some of his reserve players with a view to the summer transfer window. While there were five changes, three of the incoming players would arguably get into Spurs’ strongest XI at the moment – Christian Eriksen, Heung-Min Son and the returning Jan Vertonghen, who made a welcome comeback from injury and lined up alongside Toby Alderweireld to reunite the Lilywhites’ best centre-back pairing.
