Tottenham ratings v Rennes: Ndombele 8, Kane 6, Moura 7

Spurs made to fight for 2-2 draw but injury problems add to manager Nuno's woes

Tottenham were forced to fight for a 2-2 draw in their opening Europa Conference League Group G game against Rennes, with their night made worse by more injury problems.

Spurs went ahead after Loic Bade's own goal before the French team hit back either side of half-time through Flavian Tait and Gaetan Laborde.

However, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's leveller earned Spurs a point, but not before Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura limped off the ground. With Tottenham set to face Chelsea on Sunday, their attacking options look short.

At least it was a decent result for Nuno Espirito Santo's Tottenham after their 3-0 thrashing at Crystal Palace last weekend.

"It was not perfect, but we showed a lot of character and belief to change the result after we conceded," Nuno said of his second-string line-up.

"They are a hard team to play and it is not easy to analyse the game - we had a lot of players out of position."
