Football fans took to Twitter to rave about Mousa Dembele for his performance in Tottenham’s thrilling 2-2 Champions League draw against Juventus on Tuesday night.

Spurs produced a brilliant performance to come from 2-0 down in Turin to give themselves a great chance of progressing into the quarter-finals of Europe’s premier competition.

A  Gonzalo Higuain double had put Juventus two goals clear inside 10 minutes and left the visitors with a mountain to climb at the raucous Allianz Stadium.

But Tottenham dominated possession and grew into the game, securing a much-deserved draw through excellent goals from Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen.

At the heart of a memorable performance was Dembele, who was sensational in central midfield against the much-vaunted Miralem Pjanic and Sami Khedira.

Spurs supporters were not the only ones hailing the dominance of Belgium international Dembele, with fans of other clubs watching the live televised match also struck by how he dominated such a marquee match away from home.

A few hailed him as a “world class’ operator while others said he was the outstanding central midfielder in the world following excellent recent performances against Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United.

Here is a selection of the best messages on Twitter:

Wow Dembele just wow
