But goals in the 76th and 81st minutes from Yan Valery and James Ward-Prowse knocked the north London club's top-four ambitions.

"I don't think anyone expected us to get anything but with the belief that we showed and the character in the second half, that epitomises everything the manager has brought into the team and the club". 'I am a manager who always wanted to help the Premier League and the FA and who tried to behave at my best to help the referees and try to improve our game. "I feel so disappointed".

"We have to go one step further for me to win things in my football career, '" added Sheringham, 52.

"It's about complacency, it's about arrogance in a bad way". But if you play like that in the first half, then play like that in the second half, we're not in the best eight of Europe.

The second half saw plenty of pressure from the visitors, but Arsenal stood firm and doubled their advantage. People talk about perceptions but we need to realise if you do not fight with intensity for the Champions League, you will struggle.

Santiago Solari's future as Real coach hangs in the balance after three defeats in a row which have effectively ended the club's chances of a trophy, culminating with a 4-1 loss to Ajax Amsterdam which knocked them out of the Champions League.

"You shouldn't lose games like that and we can't in the position we're in", Eriksen told Spurs' offical website. We played well but they were always unsafe on the counter-attack and today with five at the back we were more compact. "I think in the last few years we were living more in the perception than in the reality and now is the reality".

Ward-Prowse sealed the win with a stunning free-kick, whipping the 25-yard set-piece over the wall and into the top corner. That's why we lost compared to the first half. And we only earned warm words and I said to them we want to earn more than only warm words, we want to earn points.

Why they will: They've been in the driving seat for a top four finish throughout the season - despite persistent predictions of inevitable failure, having not made any significant investment in the squad in the last two seasons.
