Tottenham Hotspur 6 Celtic 1: 6 Things We Learned from Spurs' Friendly Win
Stephen Brashear/Associated Press

Spurs kept their unbeaten pre-season run going with a 6-1 win over Celtic in Helsinki.

Goals from Harry Kane, Roberto Soldado and Lewis Holtby produced a 3-1 lead at half-time before Erik Lamela made it four with a long-distance shot early in the second half. It took a significant deflection en route but continued an impressive pre-season from the Argentine.

Christian Eriksen left his mark on the match with a brilliant free-kick before Emmanuel Adebayor scored his first goal of the pre-season from the penalty spot. 

Spurs continue to show improvement in their pressing as well as their quick ball-movement as Mauricio Pochettino’s philosophy really begins to take root.

Celtic were poor, but Spurs looked sharp throughout, putting in their most complete performance of the pre-season.
