Note that Sanchez's defensive error contributed to the first goal. The 25-year-old Colombian defender slipped when he was under pressure from Horvat. This slip gave Tomi Horvat enough space to beat Tottenham's goalkeeper with a long-range shot. Hence, Conte should have used Ben Davies.

2. Starting Sessegnon Over Sergio Reguilon.

Another mistake was starting Ryan Sessegnon over Sergio Reguilon. Note that Sessegnon was also caught out of position for Mira's first goal. Furthermore, Tottenham was put in a difficult Spot after Sessegnon was shown a red card. The 21-year-old received two yellow cards for needless fouls.
