Twitter reacts as Tottenham Hotspur pull off a stunning 3-1 win in the Champions League over the holders Real Madrid.
Oh, what a time to be a Spurs fan.
Things just went from bad to worse for the stuttering Real Madrid, who – after falling eight points behind La Liga-leaders Barcelona following a loss to Girona over the weekend – came up short in the most dramatic of fashions against Real Madrid on Wednesday night.
Dele Alli scored two to put Spurs 2-0 up before Christian Eriksen widened the gap just after the hour mark to make matters worse for Los Blancos.
Cristiano Ronaldo managed to fire home from close range to bring it back to 3-1 late but in truth, the game was well and truly lost at that stage.
Twitter responded to Spurs’ win with some serious praise on all sides as Pochettino’s men recorded one of the most impressive wins of the season so far. In their victory they became the first team since 2012 to defeat the Spanish giants in the group stage of the Champions League.
What a stunning performance and counter-attack from Tottenham. Thrashing Real Madrid with ease. Pochettino is going to be a wanted man.

#thfc To qualify from this group in the first place is an impressive achievement. To do it with two games to spare is remarkable.

Robbie Savage then managed to pop up with some medicine for the Manchester United faithful.
Should people REALLY be criticising Manchester United for manner of win against spurs when you see what’s happening tonight ?

But mainly, it was Real Madrid who suffered at the hands of the fans, with many understandably frustrated with what was a lacklustre offering.
FT: Tottenham 3-1 Real Madrid.
We deserve this. We did this to ourselves. Players need to come back to earth. Enough is enough.

Zidane surely not far from the sack if this goes on for much longer. Real Madrid aren’t the type of club to give a man time.
