Tottenham said to “regroup and move on” after Sporting’s defeat

Defender Ben Davies knows Tottenham Hotspur needs to improve if he is going to make it through the group stage in the Champions League.

Spurs conceded two goals in stoppage time to lose 2-0 to Sporting on Tuesday, putting them second in Group D after two matches.

After the international break, they play one after another with the winners of the Europa League, Eintracht Frankfurt.

Antonio Conte’s side was far from their best performance in Lisbon, but it was the team’s drive to win until things turned out badly after their death.

“It felt like we were always in the game and we were always creating opportunities, there were spaces, especially when we counterattacked them,” Davies Spurs told TV.

“But we missed that last bit. We lost the game at the end of the day, so we have to regroup and move on. It’s tough, it’s a competition we want to play, but if we want to progress, we have to be better than we were.

Spurs conceded in the 90th minute when Paulinho scored from a corner, then were fined with the last kick as Arthur Gomes scored a good individual goal.

Davies was unhappy with the way the first goal was scored.

“Really gutted, it was a tough game, a tough place for the future,” he said. “Maybe we were not in the best shape, but we still played in the game, so we are disappointed that we lost a goal in the fixed part of the game.

“It is very difficult because I feel it is a preventable goal. We stayed in the game, defended well when we had to, it’s just a disappointing goal to lose everything around, it’s not like they cut us up to get it.
