North Londoners knocked out of Europe League when Gent held to a draw. That night was a disappointment for most Londoners. Christian Eriksen scored the first goal and made a good start. Then Harry Kane equalized thereby complicating the situation for Tottenham.
Another blow was Dele Alli’s sending off before halftime. Because of a late lunge, he went to the bench. Despite his rashness in many other games 20 y.o. midfielder has had a first red card. It was the worst moment in his career.
After Victor Wanyama’s curler into the top-left corner Spurs was revived for a short time. But then Jeremy Perbet’s scored and the last hopes were gone. Spurs crashing out means they have reached quarter-final only for once in the last six seasons.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino says: “It’s a disappointment for the whole team. We were excited to play that match. We had a good start, but then have conceded a goal. After the second point, we could get a chance. Yet it wasn’t enough.”
Wembley’s woes are likely pursuing Tottenham. They have won only one match of eight at the stadium. Also in four European League games, Mauricio Pochettino’s side conceded 6 goals (Wembley matches). While was conceded only 5 in 12 Premier League games at White Hart Lane.
And for now, Tottenham Hotspur FC remains without a win since 2008. Obviously, they’ll concentrate all attention on catching up Chelsea, who are Premier League leaders.
And next, it’ll be Spurs vs Stoke City on Sunday. Match to take place at White Hart Lane. So we hope this time Spurs will be lucky.
