Last season, Tottenham Hotspur were dazzling in the Champions League as they comfortably came through their group by securing impressive results against Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid.
In the current campaign, though, Mauricio Pochettino’s team have been struggling, much to the delight of Chelsea fans.
On Wednesday night, Spurs squandered a 2-1 lead against PSV Eindhoven in their Group B clash on away soil.
Lucas Moura managed to equalise at 1-1 in the 39th minute before Harry Kane put Tottenham ahead in the second half.
With 11 minutes left on the clock, goalkeeper Hugo Lloris was given a straight red card for bringing down Hirving Lozano with a sliding challenge.
Eight minutes later Luuk de Jong equalised for PSV, which has left Spurs third in the group, five points adrift of second-placed Inter Milan with three games left to play.

Chelsea failed to qualify for the Champions League last season and their fans were subjected to jibes from some Tottenham supporters.
Now that it looks like Pochettino’s men will have a mountain to climb to get out of their group, members of Chelsea’s following were quick to poke fun at their rivals on Twitter.
– Bottled it against Inter Milan.
– Thought they could come back and beat Barca.
– Bottled it against PSV.
Tottenham Hotspur are the kings of brightening up Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s ??

There’s more chance of that stadium being ready this season than Tottenham getting out of their group.
