Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone, was stunned by the quality of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s fourth goal.

The former Derby man compared the strike to one that is more likely to be seen in a Fifa or Pro Evolution Soccer game.

He said: “If you saw someone score like that on a computer game, you’d be surprised, never mind in person.

“Only himself and Lionel Messi are capable of turning a game like he did.

“It was probably the best goal I’ve ever seen, especially in a game in which I’ve been involved in.”

Huddlestone added: “I thought the lads played well in large parts but Ibrahimovic took the game away from us really.

“The performance, not the result, we can take a lot from.”
