Tottenham shown two red cards in space of five minutes against Bournemouth

Tottenham Pochettino Vertonghen

It was that kind of day for Tottenham, which lost 1-0 to Bournemouth on Nathan Ake's stoppage time after playing nearly the entire second half with nine men.

Heung-Min Son and Juan Foyth were both sent off in a five-minute spell either side of half time as Spurs totally lost their heads, but nearly held on for a crucial point in the top four battle.

Already trailing 1-0 in the tie ahead of the clash at the Amsterdam Arena on Wednesday, Tottenham looked to claim the three points on Saturday that would have made sure of another season of Champions League football in 2019-20.

Spurs are expected to be heavily involved in the transfer market when the window reopens, with Mauricio Pochettino wanting to add depth to his squad to allow his side to compete strongly on many fronts next season.

Tottenham pushed hard for the opener and Travers pushed away Dele Alli's powerful shot well, as Bournemouth rarely threatened on the break.

Tottenham were reuced to 10 men in the first half after Heung-min Son acted out of chracter and barged Jefferson Lerma to the floor. A pair of red cards and a defeat means their place in next season's Champions League is still far from certain.

Lucas Moura almost gave teenage goalkeeper Travers a Premier League debut to forget, but his shot from the halfway line flew just wide, while the Brazilian also headed over.

The 19-year-old made five saves in the opening 45 minutes as he kept Spurs at bay time and time again.

To make matters worse for Spurs, Juan Foyth lunged in recklessly with a unsafe challenge on Jack Simpson just three minutes into the second half, leaving Pawson with little choice but to brandish a second red card in remarkably quick succession, with the visitors now down to nine men.

A show of indiscipline either side of half-time cost Spurs. Foyth's subsequent inability to keep himself on the pitch longer than three minutes beggared belief.
