Tottenham had a disappointing start to their Champions League campaign, as they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat from visiting Monaco at Wembley Stadium.
Despite a record attendance of over 85,000, Mauricio Pochettino’s men ultimately were unable to deliver on one of the biggest nights in the club’s recent history thanks to sloppy defensive errors in the first half.
Two goals in the first 31 minutes from Monaco’s Bernardo Silva and Thomas Lemar all but sealed the fixture early on, with Spurs struggling to find a way back into the game from then on.
Defender Toby Alderweireld gave the hosts hope when he scored a trademark header on the stroke of half time, however the comeback was not to be with Harry Kane missing a good opportunity to level the score late-on.
While their Champions League dream isn’t over, life is certainly a lot more difficult now however and improvements must be made in their remaining fixtures if they are indeed to escape their group.
Could it be that Pochettino turns to his younger players given the poor performance from his regulars last night? Our fans at the Tavern think so, and think these THREE are the most promising hidden gems he could turn to. Have you heard of them?
