Tottenham were left thinking of what could have been after throwing away a 1-0 lead against Anderlecht.
Christian Eriksen had opened the scoring after just four minutes after a decent start by the visitors. Spurs, though, offered very little cutting edge and should have gone 2-0 up, which would have killed the game off early on.
A goal either side of half time for the hosts killed Tottenham. It was a disappointing performance but Anderlecht deserved their win.
Here’s how Twitter reacted…
Tottenham forever ruining my Thursday's

Hands up, Anderlecht deserved their win. Now wipe the mouth and concentrate on winning at Bournemouth. No good dwelling on defeat. #COYS

Disappointing defeat considering how our start. Was never going to be an easy one but after our start, we should have won. Must win Sunday.

1 – Anderlecht have beaten an English side in European competition for the first time since October 2000 (2-1 win Man United). Victorious.

Ragged unconvincing performance by Spurs. 2-1 defeat flatters us!

Good to see Harry Redknapp earning a pundit's wage off a competition he used to throw every year.

Only positive I can find is that it's mildly amusing some people actually thought Dembele was going to 'kick on from here' after Saturday.
