The 27-year-old was the standout performer in the first half with his neat passing and tough tackling, only for a 32nd-minute booking to put a brake on his excellent display.

"It's easy to say we want win trophies, but we missed a massive opportunity today to show we wanted it", said Spurs manager Pochettino.
