Tottenham join race to sign highly-rated Ajax youngster

Nine-man Tottenham lose again as Travers makes his mark

The Argentine lunged into a tackle with his boot high and caught Jack Simpson, and Pawson decided that was enough for a straight red card.

If Unai Emery's side miss out on the top four, they'll need to try and win the Europa League.

The Cherries are still on course for their record Premier League points tally after beating nine-man Tottenham on Saturday, but Howe said after full-time he felt the pressure to make sure next season went one step further.

Spurs may now need to take something from their game against Everton on the final day of the season to secure a top-four finish, while they travel to Amsterdam on Thursday (AEST) looking to overturn a one-goal deficit from the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final with Ajax last week.

38 - Ajax's joint-heaviest home defeat to an English team came 38 years ago - a 3-1 reverse to Tottenham in September 1981.

"We are fighting six teams. We played so many games the last two months, the schedule is insane".

A frustrating few weeks was made even worse as Nathan Ake netted an injury-time victor against Mauricio Pochettino's side, after they were reduced to nine men just after half time. Already on a booking, Dier appeared to trip Josh King from behind but the referee didn't give the foul.

Spurs slipped to a third consecutive defeat in all competitions after two red cards at Bournemouth.

Foyth, on for the yellow-carded Jan Vertonghen, also lost his composure after letting the ball get away from him at the end of a foraging run down the centre of the field.

"That would be very special, but we should not talk about it yet", the midfielder told Dutch outlet NUsport when asked about the Champions League final.

It means Spurs are likely to have to beat Everton in their final game next Sunday to be guaranteed a fourth successive year of Champions League football, unless Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United all lose this weekend.
