Tottenham fans react buoyantly to Benfica loss on Twitter

Tottenham Hotspur supporters are satisfied with their midweek performance despite bowing out of the Europa League.

Despite dropping a 5-3 aggregate loss to Benfica in the Europa League on Thursday evening there is a feel-good atmosphere surrounding Tottenham Hotspur's supporters throughout the night and this morning.

For the traveling fans, a good night out was had in Lisbon as, on top of the entertainment the city had to offer, Tottenham Hotspur showed precisely what they are capable of with a second half surged inspired largely with the two goal heroics of summer signing Nacer Chadli.

Tottenham now only have Premier League fixtures left to contend but with a seven point gap between themselves and fourth-placed Manchester City (who have three games in hand) it appears unlikely that the Lilywhites will gatecrash the top four in order to book themselves an entrance into the Champions League next season.

It may seem like there is little to play for, but fans have expressed happiness at the go Spurs had, while others were delighted that Chadli is coming good.
