Manchester City have been knocked out of the Champions League on away goals after a 4-4 draw on aggregate, despite beating Spurs 4-3 in a quarter-final second leg on Wednesday night.
An astonishing European clash at the Etihad had a number of twists and turns, culminating in one final heartbreaking moment for Pep Guardiola’s side and the home fans.
Spurs fans chanting: "VAR My Lord VAR…"

Following considerable celebrations, the Video Assistant Referee disallowed an added-time goal for the hosts that would have won the tie.
These were the best tweets and jokes as Man City fail to reach the Champions League semi-finals after losing to Spurs on away goals thanks to a late VAR offside decision:
If you're not watching this Man City vs Spurs game, grab a chair, pick it up, and hit yourself in the face with it.

Personally, I was a bit disappointed that the game didn't feature a meteor impact and a full wildebeeste stampede… #MCITOT

The Porto and Liverpool players have just sat down on the pitch and started streaming City v Spurs.

I preferred football when Spurs would lose in the last second to a dodgy offside goal.
Damn you, VAR – you've ruined everything.

Pep Guardiola spent all that money just to get knocked out by Pochettino who used his entire transfer budget on black suits.

If Tottenham take points off Man City on Saturday I’m buying a South Korea shirt with Son on the back.
