That’s it for another year. Tottenham Hotspur exited the Europe League after a disappointing performance against Fiortenina.
The hosts won 2-0 thanks to goals from Mario Gomez and Mo Salah. Spurs played well in the first half, but a Soldado mistake in front of goal proved costly as Fiorentina took control after the break.
Inexcusable errors by Fazio and Vertonghen allowed the home side to score two simple goals. Tottenham will now turn their attention to Sunday’s Capital One Cup final. Here’s how Twitter reacted.
Interesting fact. Since signing for Spurs for £26m, Soldado's value has dropped by £46m

Sunday's a completely different game. One off, cup final against rivals. Yes, they're better but tonight has no bearing.

Fiorentina have put in the sort of home performance Spurs could/should have done last week – thoroughly professional, controlled the match.

Spurs have their work cut out for Sunday. Run into poor form just at the wrong time.

Tottenham are going through a blip at the worst possible time.
