Former Arsenal winger Serge Gnabry came back to haunt Tottenham, scoring four second-half goals as Bayern Munich embarrassed Mauricio Pochettino’s side 7-2 in the Champions League.

Heung-min Son gave Spurs the lead in the 12th minute but Bayern roared back through goals from Joshua Kimmich (15) and Robert Lewandowski (45) to lead at the break.

Then Gnabry, who left Arsenal in 2016 to join Werder Bremen, took over, scoring two in two minutes (53, 55) before Harry Kane handed Spurs a lifeline (61), scoring from the spot after Danny Rose was caught by Kingsley Coman.

However, any signs of a comeback from the hosts were extinguished when Gnabry completed his hat-trick in the 83rd minute and Lewandowski added his second three minutes from time.

There was still time for Gnabry to add his fourth (88) as Tottenham conceded seven goals in a home match for the first time in a major competition.

Victory leaves Bayern top of Group B and in pole position to top the group, but defeat leaves Spurs, who drew 2-2 with Olympiakos in their opener, with plenty still to do to if their Champions League campaign is not going to end before Christmas.
