Richarlison boiled the p**s of everybody by doing kick-ups in Spurs' win over Nottingham Forest

Richarlison decided to showboat during Tottenham Hotspur's 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest - which got him a clattering from Brennan Johnson.

Harry Kane's 200 and 201st league goals ensured victory for Antonio Conte's side at the City Ground, and tensions rose late in the second half.

Richarlison replaced Son Heung-min midway through the second half and played a vital role in Kane's second, whipping in a lovely cross with the outside of his boot.

He had a bit of fun in the final few minutes and performed a few kick-ups before playing a one-two with Yves Bissouma.

After receiving the ball back, Richarlison was firmly challenged by Johnson and went down holding his knee.

It drew cries of 'Woah woah!' from Sky Sports' Jamie Carragher on commentary and Johnson was booked by referee Craig Pawson.

Fans have reacted to the footage and they think it solidifies Richarlison's standing as the Premier League's biggest 's**thouse'.

One person commented: "Richarlison has changed this game and rattled everyone at the same time."

Another added: "Richarlison got grown men crying. £60 million well spent."

While someone said: "Fair play Johnson I'd have done the same."

Spurs took the lead inside five minutes after Kane's effort caught Forest goalkeeper Dean Henderson off guard.

Steve Cooper's men grew into the game however and Morgan Gibbs-White saw an effort to equalise just before halftime go wide.

Kane had the chance to double Spurs' lead from the penalty spot after a handball from Steve Cook, but Henderson guessed the right way and saved his spot kick.

He'd get his brace nine minutes from time to continue Spurs' unbeaten start to the campaign.

They're also unbeaten in ten Premier League games extending to April.

Spurs have moved up to third in the table, level on points with Brighton and Manchester City but two behind bitter rivals Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Forest sit 14th after a steady start to life back in the top-flight.
