The Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern are on cloud 9 today. After a dismal display against Arsenal over the weekend, the Lilywhites in the pub were fearful of a repeat performance on Tuesday evening against Borussia Dortmund. The game had so much riding on it, and a loss could have left their confidence shattered.
However, what followed the backlash following the Arsenal game was a heroic performance from Spurs, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men coming back from 1-0 down to win the game 2-1. The result not only helps put their last defeat to the back of their minds, but it has also ensured that they will progress to the next round of the Champions League in first place.
It’s been a day of celebration so far in the Transfer Tavern, and our landlord isn’t expecting the party to stop amongst the Spurs players either. Following the game, Dele Alli took to Twitter to celebrate the win, firing a big thank you message to the Tottenham faithful that travelled to Germany.

After a poor performance from Dele over the weekend, the Englishman needed a good display, and he duly delivered. This, unsurprisingly, has led to quite the reaction online, with fans responding to his post in droves. They’re absolutely delighted with the performance of their young midfielder.
See what they’ve had to say below…
Awesome game today @dele_official and if you hadn’t persevered with the ball, that winner would not have happened. Ignore the haters you have done some amazing work for the team this season #proud #COYS
