Cristian Stellini was on the pitch, screaming at Harry Kane to release the through ball and, for a brief moment, it looked as though the Tottenham assistant manager, in charge of the team as the suspended Antonio Conte watched from the stands, was going to play it himself.
It was the final minute of stoppage time, nerve ends were frayed – actually, they were past that – and, when Kane delayed, Stellini spun on his heels and threw his hands into the air. Spurs were plainly determined to eke things out even further, to put everybody through the wringer; the theme of a wild and intense night.
