Former Arsenal man Gnabry steals the show as Bayern put 7 past Spurs in north London/Hector Bellerin reacts

An incredible evening at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium tonight saw former Arsenal starlet Serge Gnabry grab the headlines, with a wonderfully-taken poker.

Spurs host Bayern

Mauricio Pochettino’s men welcomed Bundesliga champions Bayern to London a short time ago, for a Champions League Group B clash.

Hosts Spurs headed into proceedings already under pressure, having fluffed a 2-goal advantage in their European season opener to eventually stutter to a 2-2 draw.

Bayern, on the other hand, made short work of Red Star Belgrade two weeks ago, to take early control of the group.

And, when the 90 minutes were said and done in the English capital this evening, the German giants only further cemented their status as Group B’s team to beat.

Tottenham actually took the lead early on, and deservedly so, when Heung-min Son found the bottom corner of Manuel Neuer’s net.

The visitors, though, did not lose their cool, and pulled level in style just 3 minutes later.

A superb strike from Joshua Kimmich from outside the box left Hugo Lloris with no chance.

An incredibly-open half ensued, eventually leading to Bayern finding the net again on the stroke of the interval.

After Corentin Tolisso saw a penalty shout waved away, the ball dropped to Robert Lewandowski on the edge of the area.

And, as he had already managed on 12 occasions this season, the Pole went on to find the net, courtesy of a wonderful swivel and rifled finish.

Gnabry and Bayern run riot

The early exchanges of the second 45 then saw the clash decided, in Bayern’s favour.

A brace in the space of 3 minutes from Serge Gnabry sucked the air out of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, before the German international capped off an absolutely incredible individual performance with his 3rd AND 4th of the night in the game’s closing 10 minutes.

The fact that it was Gnabry who stole the show, meanwhile, has certainly not been lost on fans.

The 24-year-old came up through the youth ranks of Spurs’ fierce rivals Arsenal, but departed after finding game-time hard to come by under Arsene Wenger.

Gnabry now, though, looks an absolute world-beater.

The wide-man terrorised Serge Aurier throughout the 90 minutes tonight, showcasing pace, close control, and, above all else, an unrelenting eye for goal.

All 4 of Gnabry’s finishes were of the highest quality, with Tottenham having simply had no answer for the direct nature of the explosive German.

Robert Lewandowski also capped off a fine Bayern move to notch his brace 3 minutes from time, just moments before Gnabry found the corner with his poker-sealing strike.

‘Joke man’

One of Arsenal’s current stars, meanwhile, has since taken to social media to react to Gnabry’s staggering night’s work.

The individual is Hector Bellerin, with the Spaniard having posted the following on Twitter:
