EPL: Nine-man Tottenham fail to secure top-four place

Tottenham had two players sent off as they missed the chance to guarantee Champions League football next season with defeat by Bournemouth.

It was far from ideal preparation for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who face Ajax in the Champions League semi-final second leg on Wednesday in Amsterdam, having lost the first leg 1-0.

Son Heung-min was dismissed for pushing Jefferson Lerma at the end of a frantic first half, in which Eric Dier was lucky not to have been sent off and Bournemouth could conceivably have had two penalties.
