Some Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to Twitter to share their reaction to the first half performance against Stoke City in the Carabao Cup quarter final tie at the Bet365 Stadium.
It has been a relatively comfortable opening forty five minutes for Jose Mourinho’s side, who took the lead after twenty one minutes when Gareth Bale headed in Harry Winks’ cross into corner of the far post.
Dele Alli, who returned to the starting eleven has looked lively and nearly found the back of the net himself when his shot was well saved by Andy Lonergan, the veteran keeper also palmed away an effort from Harry Kane at a tight angle.
Stoke have rarely looked to threaten in the final third of the pitch which has allowed Spurs to dominate the possession and play the game at their own pace.
Here is what some of the North London faithful had to say about what they have witnessed.
No one’s played bad but no one has played good. At least we are winning.

Dele's been good. Lucas still offers nothing, but he'll still get subbed on every game cause he had one good game 2 years ago.

Ali now needs to start every game, he’s been very good plus we are desperate for some creativity in the team

Need to kill it early second half. Longer it rumbles on at 1 nil Stoke will push.
