Mauricio Pochettino must now rouse his men for a strong finish to the Premier League season and ensure they are competing in Europe's premier club competition again.
The north Londoners visit the Vitality Stadium on Sunday to face a Bournemouth team, who are unbeaten in their last five home matches.
Toby Alderweireld is likely to remain unavailable for Pochettino, while Eric Dier's fitness will be assessed after he had to come off on Wednesday night.
Eddie Howe will without Tyrone Mings and Marc Pugh, with Jordon Ibe a doubt.
Bournemouth's position in the relative comfort of mid-table is thanks largely to their home form.
The side from the south coast have lost only four games at home this term - all of which came against top seven opponents - and three have been by just a single goal margin.
As well, the Cherries were beaten at Wembley by just a 1-0 scoreline in the reverse fixture.
Tips and predictions
Under 2.5 goals is available at a healthy 6/5 (2.20) and that is a tempting price.
Seven of Spurs' last nine matches in the Premier League have seen less than three goals, while these sides' previous meeting produced just a single goal back in October.
On top of that, the corresponding fixture last term at the Vitality Stadium ended goalless.
