Spurs need to abandon Europe and prioritise the Premier League

Luuk de Jong of PSV Eindhoven

Lloris came charging out of his goal and took out Lozano - the French World Cup winning captain giving referee Slavko Vincic little choice but to brandish the red card.

He also has this to say about the red card his team got in the game: "In my opinion I think no, but we can not blame the referee".

It sounds insane considering that many football fans would give their right arm to see their team compete in the Champions League, but it simply doesn't look like Spurs can hack it on two fronts, and we're not even halfway into the season yet.

But Pochettino said his team only had themselves to blame.

"I'm not going to blame any player".

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. "We didn't win", he told a news conference. "When you play so much better and dominate the game and create the best chances, if you cannot kill the game and it's open, you can concede".

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

Lloris was at fault in Spurs' last Champions League clash against Barcelona but Pochettino revealed he didn't apologise to his team-mates afterwards.

"Of course we are so competitive and maybe today we deserved more". However, most of of their games are very low scoring.

"We didn't force it". But, just as against Inter Milan two weeks ago when it lost 2-1, Mark van Bommel's team could not protect its lead.

'We should have finished the game off, ' the Denmark midfielder told Spurs TV.

"The PSV fans were so, so disappointed with the performance of their own team, but it was like it was contagious". At this level of football, if you fail to take your chances, you will be punished. You need to kill the game and kill the opponent when you have the possibility. If you do, you pay.

To put it simply, the Premier League is now the sole bright light shining in Tottenham's gloomy season, should Lloris make another howler as he did against PSV, in the game against Manchester City, it could prove fatal for Tottenham's Premier League campaign.

Mexican global and PSV forward Hirving "Chucky" Lozano was the brightest star for the Dutch side throughout the match.
