Lineker, Sugar and more: Twitter reacts as Tottenham draw with Stoke
Gary Lineker and Lord Sugar take to Twitter after Tottenham throwaway a 2-0 lead to draw with Stoke City
Tottenham Hotspur discarded a two-goal lead with 12 minutes remaining at White Hart Lane after Stoke City rescued a late point in north London.
Spurs appeared to be coasting towards maximum points after first-half goals from Eric Dier and Nacer Chadli, before Marko Arnautovic and Mame Diouf scored in the 78th and 83rd minutes to salvage a draw.
Here is a selection of our favourite Twitter reaction from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to Tottenham’s collapse at The Lane.

Spurs are being…well Spurs! 2-0 up to 2-2.
