Tottenham Hotspur have started their Premier League campaign superbly, boasting a 100% record after the opening three matches.
The task for Mauricio Pochettino’s side will increase in difficulty after the September international break though with the return of Champions League football in North London – although it is not yet at the stadia that the club intended.
Wembley nights, therefore, beckon the Lilywhites and Pochettino’s team were handed a tasty set of fixtures to play over the next few months after being drawn against LaLiga champions Barcelona, Serie A giants Inter Milan and Eredivisie heavyweights PSV Eindhoven.
The standout set of fixtures will certainly come up against Lionel Messi and company, while a trip to the San Siro will bring back positive memories of Gareth Bale’s meteoric performance all those moons ago – but clashes with PSV could provide equal excitement.
Spurs fans wasted no time giving their reaction to the draw on social media and we have assembled some of the best reactions below.
Resign Bale just for the Inter games haha

Twice in a row we’ve got the group of death. But I have no doubt we’ll qualify #COYS

If you want to be the best then you have to beat the best, we should have no fear at all as ironically our Champions League group last season was stronger.
Ultimately if we want to go far in the competition then we would need to beat teams like Barca/Inter on route to the final.
