It looked like rookie Bournemouth goalkeeper Mark Travers, who was in the Republic of Ireland squads for the Euro qualifiers against Gibraltar and Georgia, was going to be the story of the game as he produced several fine saves on his Premier League debut as Spurs should have had the game wrapped up before their indiscipline.
Spurs" defender Juan Foyth did the real-life imitation of the classic Simpsons' "grandpa meme' today when he was sent off just two minutes after coming on against Bournemouth.
Bournemouth beat nine-man Tottenham 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday, as Spurs nearly held on for a heroic point on the South Coast of England. The latest top four betting has Spurs and Chelsea at [1.32], Arsenal at [2.66] and Manchester United at [6.6].
The Lilywhites' awful Premier League form - the club has won just three of its last 10 in the top-flight - has repeatedly stopped them from putting the top four battle to bed and it continued today with a 1-0 defeat at Bournemouth.
Travers became the first teenage Premier League goalkeeper to start a match since Joe Hart in October 2006 and he soon showed why he was deserving of such faith.
"We're on right track, no turning back"; one dead in Caracas
Opposition activist Juan Guaido called for the coup d'état in a video message posted to twitter , after which point riots began. He added that the US could never bring a puppet president to the Miraflores presidential palace in Caracas .
Moura was denied again before the break as he latched onto a long ball over the top but Travers stuck out a leg to make the stop. "Huge potential, we think this is an ideal game for him to show what he is capable of".
Referee Craig Pawson walked over to Foyth before brandishing his second red card of the afternoon. Soon it got even worse...
Heung Min-Son, ordinarily a happy and mild-mannered player, kickstarted a freaky collapse when receiving a red card for lashing out at Jefferson Lerma. The Argentine lunged into a tackle with his boot high and caught Jack Simpson, and Pawson decided that was enough for a straight red card.
But the equation is clear for Spurs.
Despite their unbelievable lack of discipline Tottenham nearly held on for a crucial point in their top four battle, but Nathan Ake's 91st minute header sealed their sixth-straight PL away defeat.
