Former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry scored four as Bayern Munich humiliated Tottenham 7-2 in the Champions League in north London.

The home side got off to a great start when Son Heung-Min, who had already squandered two chances, gave them the lead in the 12th minute when he drilled an effort across Manuel Neuer.

But that appeared to wake the visitors up and Bayern were level just two minutes later when the Spurs defence failed to close down Joshua Kimmich on the edge of the area and the Germany international rifled a fine strike beyond Hugo Lloris.

And Bayern turned the game on its head on the stroke of half-time when Robert Lewandowski, initially with his back to goal, turned a found the bottom corner from 18 yards.

The Bundesliga giants put the game to bed with two strikes in as many minutes after the half-time break when Gnabry twice beat Lloris with fine finishes across the Frenchman – capitalising on poor defending from the home side in both instances.

Spurs were handed a lifeline on the hour mark when Danny Rose went down in the box and Harry Kane dispatched the penalty, but it then turned into a complete horrorshow for Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

Gnabry completed his hat-trick with another clinical finish before more appalling defending allowed Lewandowksi his second of the game.

Former Gunner Gnabry then added a fourth with two minutes to go when he smashed another fine strike past a miserable Lloris and Tottenham’s humiliation was complete.
