Moussa Sissoko often talked about his keenness to play Champions League football while he was at Newcastle United.

The midfielder got his wish at Tottenham Hotspur following his £30million summer move.

So how is his Champions League adventure going?

Well, Tottenham, beaten 1-0 by Bayer Leverkusen at Wembley last night, are third in their group after winning just one of their four group games so far.

And Sissoko, tellingly, was trending on Twitter along with TV drama The Missing.

Newcastle fans, clearly, were enjoying the spectacle – though less so, Spurs fans.

Here is a selection of tweets from last night:

Gary Lineker (‏@GaryLineker): Sissoko? Explain?
