Tottenham Hotspur crashed out of the Champions League on Tuesday night as they lost 2-1 away at Monaco, producing a dismal performance.

Spurs went into the game on a high having come from behind to claim a late 3-2 win over West Ham on Saturday evening, but knew they needed points to keep their Champions League hopes alive.

After Bayer Leverkusen had drawn 1-1 with CSKA Moscow earlier in the day, Spurs simply needed to avoid defeat to take their campaign to the final game of the group stage – but they couldn't do that as they collapsed at the Stade Louis II.

Hugo Lloris had saved a spot kick from Radamel Falcao before Djibril Sidibe headed Monaco in front on 48 minutes, sparking a stunning run of goals.

Harry Kane equalised just four minutes later from the penalty spot after Dele Alli had been fouled by Kamil Glik, but that lasted just a matter of seconds as Thomas Lemar smashed home what proved to be the winner.

Spurs have now crashed out of the Champions League, and need a result against CSKA Moscow in the final game of the group stage to guarantee their passage into the Europa League.

Tottenham's performance was terrible, and pundit Alan Shearer took to Twitter to condemn the display, suggesting that they played like they didn't want to be in a competition they worked so hard to qualify for.

Former Spurs ace Micky Hazard looked ahead to Saturday's clash with Chelsea, admitting that he is deflated but keeping the faith in Mauricio Pochettino's men.

Ex-Spurs goalkeeper Ray Clemence also offered his verdict, claiming that Tottenham were second best all over the park, and the game with Chelsea is now a huge one for the club.

Here are the tweets from Shearer, Hazard and Clemence as Spurs face up to life without the Champions League...
