Tottenham became the first English side ever to concede seven in a European home game as they were dismantled 7-2 by Bayern Munich.

In a lightning start by last seasons finalists, Heung Min Son, who had already missed two golden opportunities to make it 1-0, swept home from Moussa Sissoko’s pass to put Spurs on course for their first Group B Champions League victory of the campaign.

But that’s as good as it would get for Spurs, who were caught cold less than three minutes later as Joshua Kimmich’s capitalised on some poor defending to equalise before Robert Lewandowski’s classy finish put the German’s 2-1 ahead at the break.

Harry Kane scored a second-half penalty to make it 4-2 after Serge Gnabry had netted two goals in two minutes. Mauricio Pochettino’s were briefly back in the contest before Gnabry added two more and Lewandowski helped himself to his second of a clinical evening.

And former Tottenham striker Gary Lineker, summed up a night to forget in one simple tweet, which you can see below.

But that wasn’t the only grim record that Spurs set tonight. BBC Sport revealed a number of other gruesome statistics for Pochettino’s men.

Look away now.

  • It was the first time in Spurs’ 137-year history that they have conceded seven goals in a home game.
  • It was the first time since a 7-1 Premier League defeat by Newcastle on 28 December 1996 that they have let in seven goals.
  • They are the first English side to concede seven goals in a home European match (they were also the first to concede six).
  • They are the first English side to concede seven goals in a European game since the last time they did it – when a makeshift Spurs lost 8-0 to Cologne in the 1995 Intertoto Cup.
  • The most goals Spurs had conceded in a European home game was last season in a 4-2 defeat by Barcelona.
  • This was Mauricio Pochettino’s joint heaviest defeat as a manager, alongside a 5-0 loss to Real Madrid in March 2012 when in charge of Espanyol.

  1. Time for change all round including Poch, I always said Poch is too predictable and has no plan B when things are going bad. Total disgrace these players need to apologise to fans because they pay and follow their team. Allegri waiting in the wings and the players should be ashamed when getting paid this week, they are total frauds, if they want to give it to some Charity that will be acceptable COYS

  2. Time to own up to what is wrong in the dressing room between players. rumours can only get worse. Got a shiner.
    fell over. Oh yeah. Stop the rumours sort the problems. never seen this in 67 years. Billy Nick would have stamped
    on this long ago.

    • Have to agree. And Poch still struggling with the English language cannot be helpful. He talks about the players skin. Meaning the psychological state. He’s lost the team, the players have lost the team. The hang-dog look of Kane, Spurs defenders look like they have a bet placed on losing by giving attackers time and space. Or perhaps they cannot defend – period.

  3. The club is in absolute disarray.It appears apparent that something major has happened within the group of players sort it out and start doing what you are paid to do!!!! C.O.Y.S. Poch has to take responsibility with getting it resolved.

  4. We’ve got an ageing defence and most look like they can’t be bothered ! The manager obviously hasn’t got a clue what to do, he’s had 5 years! This team has blown its chances of trophies time for a total rebuild. Pochettino, like most of the team look like they want to be somewhere else. Levy will hang on to him hoping he’ll get money for him

    • Feel awful but then football can be like this: missed goals, defensive mistakes, opposition can do nothing wrong in front of goal, you fade into hopeless. But woe one day of severe woe isn’t the season. There. Still feel awful.
