Pochettino has no complaints over Tottenham's double dismissal

Fernando Llorente Harry Kane Tottenham 27012018

However, Nathan Ake's stoppage-time header inflicted a 13th league defeat of the season on Spurs who had been reduced to nine men shortly after halftime. Foyth was sent off for a tackle on Jack Simpson. Two red cards made it hard for the team, but we fought. They stayed four points clear of fifth-place Arsenal, which have two games left compared to Tottenham's one.

Ajax hold a 1-0 advantage from the first leg in London last week, when Sissoko was out injured along with Harry Winks and Mauricio Pochettino elected to deploy three centre-backs behind Wanyama and deploy Dele Alli in a deeper midfield role. "We played so many games the last two months, the schedule is insane".

That "not one believed in us" theme continued in Pochettino's post-game comments, as he must now pick up his players for a huge UEFA Champions League semifinal second leg at Ajax on Wednesday.

Frustrated by a heated battle for possession with Ryan Fraser, Son responded to Jefferson Lerma's presence by shoving the Bournemouth midfielder to the turf, leaving Craig Pawson no option but to flash the red card.

Dier was then fortunate not to give away a penalty for clipping the heels of Callum Wilson in the area, and wound up being substituted at half-time.

Dier has been a mainstay of the Tottenham team during Pochettino's five-year reign, but injuries and illness have restricted him to 17 Premier League and just two Champions League starts this season.

Whatever happens today when Chelsea play Watford and Arsenal host Brighton, Tottenham will secure a top-four finish if they beat Everton.

Tottenham's rivals for third and fourth - not in action until Sunday, a win for Spurs on the south coast would have sealed a top-four finish and qualification for next season's Champions League.

"Nothing in football is written, you have to go out there and do it. PSG [in the last 16 in 2017] - people said if they scored it was over but we went out there and scored six".
