It was a dramatic day for Spurs fans today, despite the fact that we didn’t even play, as Leicester and West Ham drew 2-2 in a dramatic game that swung both ways.
It looked like Leicester were cruising towards another 1-0 win until Jamie Vardy received a second yellow card for diving and was sent off. A controversial penalty allowed Andy Carroll to equalise, before Aaron Cresswell scored a brilliant volley to put West Ham ahead.
Yet the drama was not over as the referee Jon Moss made another questionable decision, awarding Leicester a penalty with only seconds remaining. Leonardo Ulloa converted from the spot to earn Leicester what may prove to be a valuable point.
Here’s how Spurs fans reacted to the match on Twitter.

The fairytale is on for the club under investigation for financial irregularities spearheaded by a racist and owned by a Thai billionaire

All I ask is that we get a chance to blow this on our own terms.

Do you reckon Moss would be up for officiating our game tomorrow as well?

Everyone's favourite little Italian, refuses to condemn Vardy's dive. Poor. #Ranieri

Five points back isn't too dissimilar to four, and both are massively better than seven – but none of that matters unless we win tomorrow.
