No victories from their first three Champions League Group B games has now left Tottenham Hotspur well adrift of qualification into the knockout stages of the competition and staring the Europa League (or even - whisper it - an end to European competition altogether) directly in the face.

Hugo Lloris was sent off as Tottenham failed to win a third Champions League group stage encounter.

Christian Eriksen was a welcome addition to the Tottenham lineup, helping Spurs control the midfield and again showed his class by floating a perfectly weighted cross to Harry Kane for Tottenham's second goal.

Spurs had a goal from Davinson Sanchez controversially disallowed in the first half before Lucas equalised, while Lloris was given a straight red card for a challenge on Lozano outside the penalty area despite defenders covering nearby.

Hugo Lloris has had a bad season so far, with off-field incidents such as his drink-driving charge and on the field, he hasn't looked like one of the goalkeepers belonging in the upper echelon of the game, and definitely not a World Cup-winning goalkeeper.

PSV's opening goal also came from a mistake, by Toby Alderweireld, but Spurs boss Pochettino laid the blame at his side's failure to take their chances rather than the brain fades at the back. I think we can qualify and we believe.

'We could have done better'.

The result leaves both Spurs and PSV on one point from three games, five behind Barcelona and Inter.

"Maybe we can qualify but in the end it will be hard when the opponents [Inter Milan and Barcelona] will be tougher than the one we played today".

"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".

"Now is not the time to find someone to blame like the referee or the decision [to send off Lloris]".

"Today was a game completely dominated by us but we needed to be more aggressive and score more than twice".

They did have chances to kill the game off against inferior opposition, but lacked a ruthless edge in their attacking play.

"I'm a little bit sad because I scored and we played well". At this level of football, if you fail to take your chances, you will be punished. "If not, always in football you pay".

'He doesn't need to apologise. Anyway, it wasn't a mistake - it was an action and a sending-off. "Why should Hugo apologise? No".
