When Tottenham were knocked out of the Champions League in the group stage before Christmas, some hoped they would give the Europa League a go this season.

And in fairness, Mauricio Pochettino put out a strong team in both Round of 32 legs against Belgian side Gent.

But it wasn’t to be as Spurs followed up a 1-0 defeat in Belgium with a 2-2 draw at Wembley, signalling the end of this season’s Europa League journey.

Christian Eriksen opened the scoring, but that was soon cancelled out by a Harry Kane own goal. Dele Alli’s red card didn’t help matters.

Victor Wanyama gave Tottenham hope after the break but Gent scored again to pile the misery on the hosts. Here’s how Twitter reacted to the result and performance.
