Tottenham have conceded first for the eighth game in a row following Crysencio Summerville's strike for Leeds in the Premier League on Saturday.

Summerville scored after just 10 minutes at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to extend Spurs' poor run of first-half showings.

Antonio Conte's side have now gone behind in their last five Premier League games and eight fixtures in total.

Spurs lost 2-0 at Manchester United, were beaten 2-1 at home to Newcastle, came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 at Bournemouth and suffered a 2-1 defeat against Liverpool in north London last weekend.

Tottenham also conceded first at home to Sporting CP and away to Marseille in the Champions League, drawing the first fixture 1-1 and winning the second 2-1.

And Conte's side were then beaten 2-0 by Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

Summerville's strike on Saturday continued a worrying trend for Conte and was the eighth time in a row Spurs had gone behind.

And although they levelled through Harry Kane after 25 minutes, Leeds went back in front when Rodrigo Moreno scored a second Leeds goal just before half-time.
