DEFENDER Jack Simpson revealed he had felt the effects of the challenge which earned Spurs substitute Juan Foyth a red card at Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

Two minutes and 13 seconds after coming on as a second-half substitute, the Argentinian lunged in on the Cherries centre-half to earn a dismissal from referee Craig Pawson.

The 21-year-old’s sending off left Spurs down to nine men for the remainder of the contest after Son Heung-Min had seen red for shoving over Jefferson Lerma.

Nathan Ake’s stoppage-time header gave Cherries a 1-0 victory.

Giving his take Foyth’s tackle, Simpson told the Daily Echo: “I felt like it got me on the knee but I was able to get myself out of the way towards the end of it, which maybe saved me a little. It stull hurt quite a bit.

“Luckily my leg wasn’t on the floor so there was no twisting or anything like that. It was just contact. I started moving and it started to ease off and it felt okay.

“Sometimes as a young player you can be over enthusiastic. Obviously no-one wants to see those tackles in the game but I’m sure he hasn’t meant it and I’m sure he will learn from it.”
