Tottenham Hotspur needed a win today against Bournemouth to secure a top-four place for another season, ahead of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.
However, after Heung-mon Son and Juan Foyth both saw red, a nine-man Tottenham struggled to hold on to a point, and eventually succumbed to an injury-time Nathan Ake header from a corner.
Spurs have now two huge games left to play starting with Wednesday night in the Champions League semi final second leg against Ajax, followed by the final Premier League game of the season at home to Everton.

Not only did the two red cards hurt Tottenham's chances of winning today, but Son and Foyth will now also be banned against Everton.

He really has let the club, his teammates, and the fans down today, and Tottenham may be punished further with a lack of Champions League football next season.
