Tottenham Hotspur morning news: Dembele's disappointment, battle with Arsenal for Schar

A round up of news stories this morning about Tottenham Hotspur.

Mousa Dembele has admitted that Tottenham’s squad were stunned to lose against West Brom.

The Baggies secured a 1-0 win away at White Hart Lane in a match Spurs were heavy favourites for.

“Everyone in the dressing room was disappointed and we know we have to win these types of games. It’s difficult to talk after a game like this. I didn’t think we started too badly but we didn’t create too many chances. In the second half we didn’t play that well,” said the Belgian.

The Daily Star claims Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur will be going head-to-head to sign Fabian Schar this winter.

Tottenham reportedly sent scouts to watch him play in the Champions League game against Real Madrid last week.

Tottenham have already done great work improving their defence with several key signings over the summer.

Mauricio Pochettino is not blaming the Europa League for two defeats after Thursday night games this season.

Spurs have been beaten on Liverpool and West Brom this season following Europa League games.

“The Europa League is no excuse. We changed 10 different players from the Partizan game. We were in a good condition to play (Sunday) so that is why we it is strange we were so slow,” said Pochettino.
