Tottenham Hotspur fell to a frustrating 1-0 defeat at the hands of Royal Antwerp this evening in the Europa League after a dominant defensive display from the home side.
Until tonight, Spurs had not lost a match this season since the opening day defeat to Everton in the Premier League.
The Lilywhites had also started the Europa League group stage in perfect fashion with a 3-0 victory over LASK last Thursday.
Antwerp pounced on some uncertain play from Ben Davies in the first half, dispossessing the Welshman in his own third and racing through two on one to score.
The Belgian side then had numerous chances throughout the match to make it two, many of which came from individual errors from the likes of Sanchez, Davies, and Winks.
On the attacking side of things, Spurs were out of ideas and even resorted to bringing Kane and Son off the bench, but to no avail.
Let’s take a look at how some Tottenham fans reacted to the defeat on Twitter:
Learn a lesson from this. Our squad depth still isn’t “good” because we have far too many players who aren’t good enough for this club

there’s no connection that will push towards the attack and lead to a goal,ie, Defense -> midfield -> attack. Every player was so nervous and predictable, projecting every pass for 5 seconds. No instincts, chemistry and footballing IQ. Need a Kroos/Modric type player to run it up

Leave Dele, Winks and Davies in Belgium please. Cheers

Haven’t seen us play this bad in months. Winks, Sanchez and Moura not good enough, need to be sold in Jan. Ndombele suddenly a massive loss when he doesn’t play. Badly need a world class CB to play alongside Toby #ANTTOT #THFC #COYS

Davies at center back is a no. Dele just isn’t hungry. Gio second guesses himself and winks just runs and runs and runs where to we don’t know.
Bale just needs a more stable mid

We will never win games with winks staring and Ndombele on bench
