'What is Lloris doing?': Spurs keeper gets kamikaze red card

Spurs realistically needed to win both matches against PSV to have hopes of qualifying for the knockout stage but could only pick up a 2-2 draw.

Luuk De Jong scored a dramatic late leveler as PSV Eindhoven scraped a 2-2 Champions League draw with 10-man Tottenham Hotspur to leave the English giants' campaign hanging by a thread Wednesday.

Lloris saw red for a insane challenge against PSV.

Erik Lamela skimmed the crossbar with a shot as Tottenham continued to assert themselves, but with victory there for the taking they allowed PSV off the hook. "If someone wants to blame a person, it's myself to blame because I am responsible for the team". "I think we can qualify and we believe".

Despite winning four Premier League games in a row, Spurs have failed to get to grips with the Champions League this term and Vorm said the team must be better prepared for the demands of playing in Europe.

"Sometimes this can happen, this type of action, for me it was not a red card".

Asked whether he felt the dismissal was fair, Pochettino replied: "In my opinion I think no, but we can not blame the referee".

It was the second time in three group matches that Tottenham were guilty of costly late lapses, having led 1-0 at Inter Milan until the 85th minute before losing 2-1.

"If I am sitting here, sitting in the dugout, it's hard to make a mistake".

"The situation with Hugo was maybe unfair but that can happen in football", said Pochettino.

Spurs' two goals were expertly worked, too, with the impressive fit-again Christian Eriksen at the heart of their best play. In the Champions League there aren't many games to play.

Jenas, who played under Redknapp at Tottenham, added: "This is Spurs' fault".

"We threw it away but we did play good football and created a lot of chances - that's a positive - but if we can't finish the game off then every game's going to be really tough. We need to see ourselves and try to improve".

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli looks set to extend his current deal in North London after becoming one of the team's most important players.

"The game was under control at 2-1".

Kieran Trippier was guilty of giving up possession against Barcelona in the build-up to the Spanish side's fourth earlier this month, but captain Lloris has now been culpable twice in two Champions League fixtures for reckless runs out of his box.
