Roy Hodgson rued a hatful of missed chances at White Hart Lane. An Aaron Lennon goal in injury time condemned the Reds to a 2-1 defeat yesterday but Hodgson admitted his side had created more than enough chances to win the game themselves. "I'm very disappointed because I didn't feel we deserved to lose this game," he told reporters after the match. "It was especially disappointing because it came at a time when we had to reorganise our defence when Jamie Carragher had to leave the field. "It seemed to be a cruel way to come away from a game where we played well only to end up with nothing and losing our talismanic centre-half. "We then paid the price for not dealing with a very simple long ball which caught us unaware and Lennon then used his pace and sneaked in to score the winning goal. "I'm finding it hard to come to terms with the fact we have got nothing out of this game, but the result is not going to change with me being disappointed. "We had plenty of chances in the game and we played well enough to have put this game to bed before half-time and then just after the interval, but we didn't do so and then you always run the risk of the other team getting themselves back into it. "Tottenham are a very good attacking team and they certainly asked lots of questions of us, but I thought we asked plenty of questions of them as well."
