Tottenham fans cannot understand why Jose Mourinho did not bring on Troy Parrott

Tottenham Hotspur were knocked out of the Champions League on Tuesday evening as they suffered a 3-0 defeat to RedBull Leipzig in Germany on the night, and 4-0 on aggregate – but Spurs fans cannot understand why Troy Parrott was unused.

Having suffered a 1-0 defeat at home in the first leg, Spurs came into the clash tasked with scoring an away goal and looking to stay in the tie for as long as possible against a free-flowing attack that cannot stop scoring, under Julian Nagelsmann.

Leipzig captain Marcel Sabitzer opened the scoring inside ten minutes, as his first-time strike from 22 yards flew past Hugo Lloris – under the Frenchman’s gloves. Certainly, Lloris will not want to look back on the Austrian’s first strike.

However, Lloris hardly did much better with Leipzig and Sabitzer’s second. A long ball was misjudged by Serge Aurier and that allowed Angelino to cross for Sabitzer, who headed home. Lloris parried onto the post, when he really should have saved it.

Spurs had some half-chances but were the second-best team throughout the entire 90 minutes as Nagelsmann’s men dominated. It was three late on, as Sabitzer’s replacement Emil Forsberg scored with his first touch from 10 yards out.

A 4-0 win on aggregate, the game was dead after 20 minutes with Spurs 3-0 down on aggregate. So Tottenham fans have questioned why Jose Mourinho did not give Troy Parrott a chance, with the game over early on?
