Tottenham fans slam Ben Davies on Twitter for his performance

"If you didn't win following what happened then you don't deserve to be in the Champions League".

Michel Vorm was instantly forced into action to keep out a free kick from De Jong, but the Dutch frontman got his team back on level terms with three minutes left when flicking the ball past the replacement stopper from 10 yards out after Spurs had failed to deal with a free kick from the left.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino was unwilling to blame Lloris after his team gave up a lead in a 2-2 draw at PSV. "It was a must-win game and we didn't win it".

Tottenham visited PSV Eindhoven Wednesday evening on matchday 3 of Group B of the Champions League at Philips Stadion in Eindhoven. I think we can qualify and we believe.

Harry Kane thought he had scored a crucial victor which would have handed Spurs a European lifeline against PSV, the other team without a point to their name after two matches. If you see the statistics after the game it says it all.


The Tottenham boss admits that his side deserved more from the game against PSV Eindhoven, but insisted that it does not matter as they were not aggressive enough to get a result. When you are in a good situation to kill the game and you don't kill it, you have to blame yourself.

"The only place to watch Champions League in London". We didn't force it and that's why our feeling is so bad. That's why we're disappointed: "not with the decision, but with ourselves". At this level of football, if you fail to take your chances, you will be punished. If you do, you pay. One day, when I was young, I made a big mistake and my manager said to me: 'You don't need to apologise.' Only those on the pitch can make a mistake. "Why should Hugo apologise? No". "Many things happened. Sometimes we need to understand that football is how it is". "We only have one point".

"Now we need to win three games that we have to play and some results that help us to achieve a place for qualification - but it's hard".

However, Christian Eriksen and Mousa Dembele are pushing for recalls after overcoming injuries while Hueng-min Son and Serge Aurier could also come back in to the starting eleven today. He has lacked confidence on the ball, which led to his mistake against PSV. It seems like an uphill battle right now for Spurs to make the knockout round as results outside their control will likely need to fall their way.
