Tottenham enjoyed an all-important 4-0 win away at Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on yesterday evening.

Most of the European big guns won their respective games on the night with Manchester City being the only major side to slip up in the Champions League against Atlanta, with the Italians holding them to a 1-1 draw.

Apart from the Champions League games, Spurs’ North London rivals Arsenal were also in Europa League action on Wednesday. The Gunners were held to a 1-1 draw by Portuguese side Vitoria SC with former Spurs wide man Marcus Edwards playing a pivotal part Vitoria’s late equaliser.

The performance from Unai Emery’s side was lacklustre yet again and pressure is now really starting to mount on the Spaniard.

Former Spurs striker Gary Lineker didn’t waste the opportunity to mock Arsenal by questioning if European involvement on Wednesday nights brought back feelings of nostalgia as a nod to their Champions League participation from yesteryear.

Lineker took to social media to post the following message:

Spurs Web Opinion

This feeling of watching Arsenal struggle in the Europa League while we compete with the big guns in the Champions League never gets old. While Spurs are also struggling at the moment, it is clear that the problems at Arsenal are much deeper as their squad at present simply isn’t good enough to finish in the top 4 while it is clear that Tottenham are just underperforming.
