Mauricio Pochettino prepares Tottenham for eight days that could shape their season

Anyway, it wasn't a mistake - it was an action and a sending-off.

He missed games against Watford, Huddersfield, Cardiff and West Ham, along with all three of the club's Champions League games thus far, against Barcelona, Inter and PSV.

Tottenham finish their Group B campaign with the return against PSV at Wembley, another home tie against Internazionale and a trip to Barcelona.

The French World Cup victor was immediately shown a red card, with Spurs manager Mauricio Pocchettino taking off Heung-Min Son for second-choice 'keeper Michel Vorm.

The Mexican winger scampered through on goal and, although Alderweireld got back to make a challenge, he succeeded only in diverting the ball over Lloris and into the net. "In my opinion, no [it was not a red card] but we can't blame the referee", he said.

The EPL side came close to claiming their first win in Europe this season but Luuk de Jong late minute strike ensured both sides shared the spoils after regulation period.

"Of course we are so competitive and maybe today we deserved more".

Spurs will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing Champions League result against PSV earlier this week when they face the Premier League champions.

Alli's continued development will no doubt be exciting to watch and if he continues to progress at such a quick rate for Tottenham then it is only good news for England fans too, as he is also a key part of Gareth Southgate's Three Lions squad.

The Dane's cross for Kane's 55th-minute strike was inch-perfect, and the preceding link-up with Son was superb.

"Was it a red card?" In 5 of their last 6 games, they have only scored one goal.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino: "If we need to blame someone it's ourselves because with all the situations and the circumstances in the game you must win because I think we were much better than them".

The Daily Telegraph asked if "Lloris is becoming a problem Spurs can no longer ignore?" although it adds later that in his five EPL appearances this term he has kept three clean sheets and conceded just two goals. Their Champions League hopes are slipping out of sight once again. Kane could have had a brace, but he headed against the bar with the match still goalless.

Kieran Trippier's assist for Lucas Moura's first half equaliser was his 20th in all competitions for Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs made amends nearly immediately, Christian Eriksen splitting the PSV defence to set up Kieran Trippier for a crisp cross that Lucas fired first-time past Zoet via a deflection.
