Vitaly Janelt opened the scoring for the hosts after only 15 minutes and Ivan Toney doubled their lead on 54 minutes.

But the North Londoners fought back in the second half and equalised within six minutes thanks to Harry Kane and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

But there was even more drama in the 76th minute when Mbeumo sensationally dived inside Tottenham‘s area.

The winger found himself in front of Fraser Forster, who went for the ball.

One supporter tweeted: “Cheating to try and win a pen should be made a red card offence.. Shocking by Mbeumo.”

This fan said: “Still trying to wrap my head around the Mbeumo dive.

“He has “the keeper” beat and could have scored and chooses to dive instead. So so so embarrassing I’m still thinking about that ffs.

And that one tweeted: “The Mbeumo dive is one of the worst I’ve seen.”
