Sporting Lisbon 2 Tottenham 0: Spurs COLLAPSE and concede two in injury time to lose first match since April
TOTTENHAM conceded TWICE in injury time at Sporting to lose their first match since April.
Antonio Conte’s side will be regretting not taking all three points back from Portugal after a flurry of chances.
Richarlison thought he had broken the deadlock in the first half.
But the Brazilian, who scored twice last week against Marseille, was flagged offside.
He went close with a header late on while Harry Kane’s outstretched leg could not quite get a touch on Ivan Perisic’s ball across goal.
Spurs had Hugo Lloris to thank in injury time as he made a flying one-handed save in the 90th minute.
But then it all went wrong.
From the resulting corner, Paulinho rose highest to power in a fine header for a crucial win.
And then debutant Arthur ran through the Spurs defence and slotted in to make it 2-0.
