Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino called his side’s 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth “cruel” as the north Londoners saw Son Heung-min and Juan Foyth sent off at the Vitality Stadium.

Pochettino’s side were down to 10 men just before half-time when South Korean Son reacted angrily to Jefferson Lerma trying to retrieve the ball and pushed the Bournemouth midfielder opponent over, which saw referee Craig Pawson immediately show a red card.

Spurs’ afternoon got even worse just three minutes following the restart when Foyth, on as a half-time substitute, was also swiftly dismissed when he overran the ball and went through with a foot raised on Jack Simpson.

Spurs missed the chance to guarantee Champions League football next season after Nathan Ake scored a stoppage-time winner.


“That is cruel because I think that to fight the second half with nine player and conceded the goal in the last minute always is cruel but that is football,” said Pochettino.
