Newcastle, Cologne, Bayern and the other teams to have battered Tottenham - in pictures

Spurs suffered their worst home defeat in the club's history on Tuesday as Bayern Munich punished individual errors to triumph 7-2 in a Champions League group match

Tottenham Hotspur suffered their worst home defeat in the club's history on Tuesday as Bayern Munich punished individual errors to triumph 7-2 in a Champions League group match.

To rub salt into the wounds, Serge Gnabry, formerly on the books of Spurs' bitter rivals Arsenal, scored four of the goals.

While we are loath to kick a team when they are down, the battering at the hands of Bayern is by no means the first time Spurs have been on the receiving end of a shellacking.

Indeed Tottenham are the first English side to concede seven goals in any European competition since Spurs themselves lost 8-0 away to German club Cologne during the short-lived Intertoto Cup days back in July 1995.

A Derby County side managed by Dave MacKay, one of Tottenham's greatest ever players and part of the first English team of the 20th century to win the league-and-cup double in 1961, hammered Spurs 8-2 at County's old Baseball Ground in a Division One match in October 1976.

In the Premier League era, Alan Shearer and Les Ferdinand were on target as Newcastle United put seven past a hapless Spurs in December 1996 while Manchester City (2013) and Sheffield United (1993) hit the North London club for six.
