Great win for us. Showed great character to come from 1-0 down to win 1-2 even though I think we deserved it. Should of been 3 or 4 with some of the misses, most notably Adebayor in the first half and Defoe in the second half. Up to 3rd, 1 point ahead of Chelsea and 3 points off of Man City. Lloris is so so good.

can't complain about the result since spurs were the better team. Annoyed at how quick it turned around though. Oh well. I was expecting nothing from city/spurs/liverpool. 3pts so far is a bonus.

And don't feed me that ''When you're running at high speed, a glance can knock you off balance.'' bullshit. Bale dived, end of.

Has Bale actually managed to con the ref on any of his dives this season?

You'd think he'd have mastered it through repetition but he's as subtle as something that's not very subtle at all.

Not a great game but a really commendable 3 points for Spurs after going behind.

He had contact on two parts of his body on the side that he was coming in on. Contact is contact and at pace leads to a clear foul. Regardless of if he "flopped down" it's a foul. Gardner didn't even react because he knew he touched him and probably thought it was a penalty himself.

Oh well, 3 points, who cares. We miss Bale for one of the easiest home fixtures of the season against Reading, means we're likely to see Dempsey back in the starting eleven and that man is on some good form! Would prefer to see Siggy though.

I have no doubt you can pick up points away at Liverpool. I thought you lot were great against City and at times a threat today, just poor defending cost you. That should be fine though against Liverpools attack

I'm sure some of you will end up finding a way to make it look like a dive but that gif even proves its a foul. Gardners knee clearly touches Bales as well as him pulling his shirt. If that isn't a penalty then I don't really know what it is. But like I said, we got the 3 points, that's all that matters.

If anything, Defoe should of got a booking for his horrendous dive in the first half.
