Tottenham Hotspur suffered a 2-1 defeat to Inter Milan in their opening match of the 2018-19 Champions League on Tuesday night.
The English club led in the second period through a Christian Eriksen effort, but two late goals from Inter saw the Italian giants claim a huge three points.
It was not a particularly great night for Tottenham, but there was some good news from the other match in their group.
Barcelona recorded a 4-0 win over PSV Eindhoven, but the Spanish champions had Samuel Umtiti sent off late on, and therefore the Frenchman will be ruled out of the clash with Tottenham early next month.
Umtiti was outstanding during France’s 2018 World Cup triumph, and has also been excellent since arriving in Spain.
The Tottenham supporters were not pleased with a number of their own players following the defeat in Milan.
But at least central defender Umtiti will be absent for the club’s clash with Barcelona.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Spurs fans can be seen below:
I am expecting the worst from that game as we would struggle to beat them at our very best.

Messi could play centre half against us and we wouldn’t score
