Tottenham’s defeat to Bayern added proof they must sell Eriksen in January

Tottenham were on the receiving end of another schooling against Bayern Munich with plenty of passengers – but Christian Eriksen drifted badly (Mirror).

Over the course of their two Group games, Bayern Munich won 10-3 against Tottenham as the Germans cruised through into the last 16.

Of course, Tottenham are already qualified themselves and there was not much riding on a dead rubber in the Allianz Arena.

But the gap between the two clubs last night and two months ago at White Hart Lane could not have been more stark.

Bayern were sharp, full of movement and pace. Tottenham were chasing shadows again and, even though Jose Mourinho has given them one hell of a lift, another miracle run all the way to the Champions League final looks like being a tall order.

Tottenham boss Mourinho cut a desperate figure on the touchline, unable to inspire a better performance from too many players who were drifting or out of their depth.

There was a huge positive for Ryan Sessegnon as the £25million teenager scored on his first start for the club and his pace caused problems all night.

Mourinho had urged Sessegnon to be more vocal – and the 19-year-old certainly announced himself in the most dramatic fashion in one of Europe’s best stadiums.
