Tottenham were left to rue a number of missed chances as they were held to a goalless draw by Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Champions League.

The visitors, who were looking to respond after losing to English Premier League rivals Arsenal at the weekend, put in a largely encouraging display but were let down by poor finishing.

Harry Kane was agonisingly close to turning in a Son Heung-min cross before then swiping a shot wide in the first half, while Ivan Perisic saw a deflected strike go just wide of the far post before the break.

But the hosts also had chances, with Hugo Lloris needing to produce a smart save to deny Ansgar Knauff’s volley from close range and Jesper Lindstrom drove over from a good position.

The pace of the game slowed in the latter stages, with neither side seemingly willing to take risks and go for the win.

The result means Tottenham are second in Group D with four points after three games, two points behind leaders Sporting Lisbon, who lost 4-1 at Marseille yesterday.

Eintracht Frankfurt, meanwhile are level on points with Spurs but in third place on goal difference.
