Tottenham fire five past Dinamo Tbilisi in Europe

Tottenham have one foot in the Europa League group stage proper following their 5-0 demolition over Dinamo Tbilisi in Georgia on Thursday night.

First-half goals from Andros Townsend and summer signing Paulinho preceded a second-half brace from new Spanish striker Roberto Soldado and a single from Danny Rose.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas was thrilled with the result as the North Londoners get set to take their five-goal lead back to White Hart Lane.

"We had some very good moments and the thing that was the difference was scoring from the chances we had," Villas-Boas said.

"The killer instinct was there from the chances we had and that didn't happen in Dinamo's case.

"That is why, in the end the result is as expressive as it is."

He added: "We want to ensure qualification and in the second leg anything can happen.

"We are expected to win at home after this result away from home but we won't play with fire.

"We will be strong and want to ensure we are in the group stages."
