West Ham United fans mock Tottenham Hotspur following Messi masterclass

There is no shame in losing to Barcelona, particularly when Lionel Messi is running the show, but West Ham United fans still took the time to mock Tottenham Hotspur when the North London outfit were defeated by the Catalan giants on Wednesday night.

Barcelona secured a 4-2 victory, but Mauricio Pochettino’s men showed signs of a comeback throughout the encounter.

In the end, though, Messi stole the headlines as he scored twice and dominated the Wembley pitch.

Harry Kane pulled a goal back for Spurs to make it 2-1, and Erik Lamela signalled another fightback when he found the back of the net at 3-2, but it was not to be.

Last season, Tottenham shone in the group stage, but after two games they are still without a point in Group B.

Some West Ham fans took plenty of joy in seeing their London rivals get beaten, and there are a handful of tweets to prove it.

A few even poked fun at Liverpool after they were beaten 1-0 by Napoli in Italy.
