It seems as if Darren Bent is in the same boat as any Spurs fan today, as many are still recovering from the shocking defeat in the Champions League last night.

Spurs came into the competition with some hope, expectation, and respect after reaching the 2019 final alongside Liverpool.

Last year, they got results against Inter Milan and Barcelona, before knocking out Borussia Dortmund, Man City, and Ajax across two legs each.

However, Spurs have now started the new European campaign with a draw away to Olympiacos and a humiliating 7-2 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich.

Spurs went 1-0 up last night and had the better chances in the opening half an hour, before Bayern equalised and Tottenham capitulated.

Somehow, by the end of the game, Tottenham had shipped seven, with a number of the players appearing to have given up the fight.

Ex-Spurs striker, Darren Bent, claims he is in shock after the defeat and believes there must be something wrong behind closed doors at Tottenham.

He said (Sky Sports): “I’m a little bit in shock. The situation down at Spurs hasn’t been great for a little while now. To be on the back of that hiding, it’s scary to think.

“They reached the final of the Champions League last season and probably had high expectations this season, but to be beaten seven and the manner in which they were at home, it’s really disappointing.

“In the last four seasons, we’ve all sung their praises, and they did well to overcome some of the situations they got into last season in the Champions League. They should’ve gone out of the group but ended up getting to the final.

“This season, they just don’t seem like the same Spurs and don’t seem to have the same hunger, the same buzz. Pochettino hasn’t got the same charm, so for me, maybe behind closed doors, something seems to be very wrong.”
