Gary Lineker and Alan Sugar react on Twitter to Spurs being Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur didn't surprise the duo on social media after their capitulation against Stoke City.

Tottenham blew a 2-0 lead at home to Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon - but Gary Lineker wasn't surprised.

Indeed, the north London side led Mark Hughes' men at White Hart Lane thanks to goals from Eric Dier and Nacer Chadli.

But a late rally from the Potters ensured Tottenham capitulated to end up drawing 2-2.

Former Tottenham striker Lineker, meanwhile, reacted on Twitter by comparing Spurs... to Spurs.

And former club chairman Alan Sugar echoed Lineker's sentiments on social media.

How quickly things change - with Spurs suddenly looking as though they have vastly improved. Losing 1-0 at Manchester United was a better result than their comprehensive defeat last season. Winning against Stoke, meanwhile, was something they didn't manage throughout all of last campaign.

But to concede two goals so late on and drop a lead during a home game was something Tottenham fans simply didn't want to see.

Meanwhile, BBC pundits Martin Keown and Garth Crooks provided comments similar to that of the former Spurs men while commenting during Final Score.

Indeed, Crooks said: "The first half was one of the best Spurs performances I’ve seen. But it all evaporated.

And Keown added: "You have to ask: where’s the character in this Tottenham team?”
