Tottenham Hotspur fans are having a rather forgettable week after throwing away a 1-0 lead at the San Siro on Tuesday evening.
Following a loss to Liverpool on Saturday, Mauricio Pochettino’s men were in complete control of their first Champions League match of the season against Inter Milan, but a phenomenal equalising strike by Mauro Icardi in the 85th minute turned the tie on its head.
Spurs were then their own worst enemy as poor defending from a corner in added time led to Stefan de Vrij heading the ball toward Matias Vecino in front of goal, who easily nodded it past Michel Vorm as Inter claimed an important win.
The result made it the first time Spurs had lost three consecutive matches under the watch of Pochettino, who decided to leave defenders Kieran Trippier and Toby Alderweireld out of the squad for the trip to Milan.
Spurs fans weren’t happy at all when the final whistle went, pointing the finger at a variety of key personnel at the club including the players, Pochettino and Daniel Levy. Here are some their reactions on Twitter:
No passion or desire from anyone for the past 3 games now, lost to a poor team playing league 1 football! Dier and Vorm wouldn’t even start for Sunderland.

Naive subs, taking Lamela off at 70 minutes, the game wasn’t won! Poor, very poor!

Spurs of old. Weak at the back and playing for 89 mins. Frustrating.

Leaving Toby at home a serious own goal.Taking Harry off only strengthened Inters belief.We have learned nothing from our last two defeats with set plays causing silly goals against us.

I guess not signing any players for a team who has won nothing with players who are clearly too comfortable and tired was a good idea yeah?

Look at Liverpool, spent big strengthened and wow what a team brilliant, backed the manager they trust and fair play to them. Levy hasn’t backed one of Europe’s best managers he’s a joke
