Tottenham scored three times against Lazio but ended up taking a point home from their Europa League clash which ended a goalless draw.

Clint Dempsey had a header ruled out for offside in a debatable decision before Jermain Defoe's strike was correctly disallowed because Gareth Bale was offside.

Then Steven Caulker had a header scratched from the records after supposedly committing a foul before converting, leaving Andre Villas-Boas raging on the sidelines.
