“We need to learn from this” – Spurs keeper speaks out


Michel Vorm believes that Tottenham Hotspur need to treat last night’s disappointing draw with PSV Eindhoven as a steep learning curve.

Spurs’ chances of Champions League knockout qualification from Group B lie in tatters after they conceded a late equaliser in a 2-2 draw at PSV Eindhoven.

With 11 minutes left goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was sent off after racing out of his penalty area and clattering Hirving Lozano who had earlier put the hosts ahead.

Vorm came off the bench to replace Heung-min Son following Lloris’ calamity and was unable to help keep the Dutch side at bay. Some Spurs fans even questioned why Mauricio Pochettino had decided to opt for Vorm as Lloris’ back-up, rather than Paulo Gazzaniga who has impressed when given the opportunity to play.

He told the Evening Standard: “We always say to each other, ‘We need to learn from this, we need to learn from that’. Then it happens [again] and I think it kills the team — and we know it,”

“I think if we won 4-1 or 5-1 it’s deserved, and that makes it even harder, because now it feels like we lost. We drew not because PSV were that good. I think we had to kill the game at 2-1. We had enough possibilities to score a third. Obviously, we had 10 men, but even with 10 men we were a bit unlucky. We drew — it’s not enough. If you see the statistics after the game it says it all. We were much better than them. Against Inter, it was a different type of game but, obviously, we lost in the last minute. Now we draw. I see the comparison, but I think it was different.”
