We were poor. We underestimated KAA Gent and they won. Weíve got another crack at the cherry next Thursday. Before that match we travel to Fulham in the FA Cup. As Fulham is piggy in the middle, which means; will there be a weak squad when we face them because of the following match on Thursday.
We have lost two important games in a row. If Spurs want to be title/ Cup challenging team they need to beat teams like Liverpool, Fulham and definitely KAA Gent.
Tottenham's Europa League hopes have been dealt a blow after Jeremy Perbet's goal gave Gent a surprise victory in their last-32 first-leg meeting. French striker Perbet controlled and slotted into the corner from Danijel Milicevic's pull-back on the hour. A strong Spurs line-up were poor for most of the evening, although Harry Kane clipped the post after half-time. Gent, eighth in the Belgian league, almost added a second as Milicevic's shot was tipped on to the post. A poor night. At least a 1-0 defeat wasnít a 5-1 destruction, as in the case of Ars*nal.
The second leg is at Wembley on Thursday, 23 February.
