Tottenham fans react as Ben Davies apologises for Colchester loss

Ben Davies played the full 90 minutes last night.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Ben Davies has fronted up and apologised for the defeat against Colchester United. Davies has said that the fans and Mauricio Pochettino were let down by the players, according to The London Evening Standard.

Davies was named in the starting line-up against Colchester in Tuesday night’s EFL Cup clash. The Welshman has one of Tottenham’s best opportunities but his free-kick was saved by Dean Gerken in the first half.

Like the rest of his team, Davies was unable to find a way through the Colchester defence. The League Two side defended well and help Tottenham to a goalless draw, forcing the game to penalties.

In the shoot-out, Christian Eriksen and Lucas Moura both missed their spot-kicks. This allowed Colchester to progress to the next round and claim a major scalp against last season’s Champions League finalists.

After the game, Davies said (via The Standard): “We let [Pochettino] down, we let the club down. We just have to apologise to the supporters, too. We let them down. They travel with us everywhere and they’re first-class. We need everyone behind us now to help us push on through this difficult time.”

Here are some Spurs fans reacting to Davies’ apology.
