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

BREAKING: Fernando Llorente was hit by a coin while celebrating his goal at the home end.

Typical of man city to throw money at their problems. #MCITOT #UCL pic.twitter.com/6zzTgusMe5

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.
