It has been a scintillating first half between Tottenham and Man City at the new stadium in the first leg of the Champions League quarterfinal.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have pressed City high up the field and have not given the City midfielders any time on the ball.

Tottenham have created the better opportunities from open play but the visitors had a great chance to go ahead early in the game after they were awarded a controversial penalty.

Danny Rose was adjudged to have handled the ball as he dived to block a shot, even though there was no appeal from the City players themselves.

However, Hugo Lloris produced a brilliant save from Sergio Aguero’s penalty to deny the visitors the lead.

Since that point, Spurs have looked much more likely to score, and City have rarely troubled the Lillywhites’ defense going forward.

Spurs fans were mostly content with their side’s display in the first half, while others were angry at the referee’s decision to give Man City a penalty.

Here’s how some Spurs fans reacted to the first half:
