‘Old man’ Eto’o steals the show with play and comedy routines

Early Doors

We are not sure why, but we can't stop watching this Vine of Samuel Eto'o having a sniff of his nasal spray before Chelsea's Premier League clash with Tottenham.

Eto'o's priceless expression was that of a man alert and ready for business and he proved it later on in the match as he helped inspire Chelsea to a 4-0 win.

The Cameroon striker pounced on an error from Jan Vertonghen to give Chelsea the lead in the 56th and then won a penalty that was converted by Eden Hazard four minutes later in an incident that also saw Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul sent-off.

Et'o kept the laughs coming too as he pulled an 'old man' celebration out of his bag of tricks after his goal to make fun of recent rumours that he is actually older than his listed age of 32.

Eto'o wasn't even meant to start the match, but was called into action when Fernando Torres pulled up in the warm-up.

He was given a standing ovation when he was finally replaced by Demba Ba in the 75 minute.

Tottenham then provided some comedy of their own as they imploded in the final moments - allowing Ba to net two more after some shocking defending.

All together you could have put the whole thing on a West End stage and you would have had the comedy smash of the year.
