Tottenham lost 0-1 to Ajax in a Champions League semi-final first leg at their new ground in north London on Tuesday night.

Fans were left disappointed after the injury-hit hosts were unable to respond to an intensive start from the Dutch team, who went in front courtesy of an early Donny van de Beek goal.


There was also a nasty-looking incident involving Jan Vertonghen when the defender appeared to faint despite having been cleared to carry on by the medical staff following a collision.

Although Pochettino’s side will still hope to respond in the return tie, these were the best tweets and jokes as Spurs are beaten 0-1 by Ajax at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final:

Mauricio Pochettino must be very tempted to bring on Dele Alli for the second half.

There's being optimistic, and then there's the Spurs medical team looking at Jan Vertonghen and thinking "ah, he can run that off".

Normally, a demoralising defeat in the Champions League can have a bad knock-on affect on a team's league form.

Thankfully, though, Spurs don't have any league form, so it's all good.
