The home players also vent their fury towards Lennon as play comes to a halt but they manage to stop it going overboard. That would have spoilt a cracking game, which has finished 3-3 as the final whistle goes and Tottenham go through as group winners.
Sorry, it's De Jong that has gone down and the home crowd are incensed that Lennon has played on, even though he has every right to.
More penalty shouts from the home crowd as Janssen goes down at the far post from Chadli's left-wing cross.
Twente are still trying to maintain possession and come forward. Here's hoping the English sides avoid the Dutch champions in the Europa League's last 32.
Concern all round about whether Spurs' defence can compete come the knock-out stage...Luke Williams says: "We need a central defender who we can rely on to not get injured! Spurs could have a brilliant defence with a bit of consistancy in the back four. However Gallas is doing a brilliant job with whoever partners him, I think it could be a lot worse!" Stevie Hay adds: "I think our backline is too weak to be strong contenders in the league and against the stronger teams in the Champions League."
Alfie from London "is a huge Chelsea fan but really admires the way Spurs are playing at the moment and would love to see them go all the way." I'm sure you're not alone, Alfie! Lennon cuts inside but picks out the wrong pass 20 yards out rather than shooting.
Twente put the ball back into the box and a penalty shout for a handball against Gallas is waved away.
Chadli cuts in from the left and picks out Janssen in the box but he has to turn back to keep possession.
Douglas turns a low Bale cross towards his own goal and Boschker does well to save low to his right. I think the veteran keeper may have just made amends now.
Although it's been attack, attack, attack from Spurs in the Champions League, Arsenal fan John was right about their defence: "It seems Assou-Ekotto is involved in most of Spurs' shortcomings. Food for thought!!" Pete in Bradford has responded though, saying: "I don't think the problem lies exclusively with the defenders. The main issue is we have a lack of protection in front of the back four (i.e. no defensive midfielder). Every other "big" team has one except us and until we strike that balance, I don't think we'll be able to truly compete for the major honours."
Here's a stat for you...tonight Spurs have become the first side to score two goals in each of their six group games! Harry Redknapp is preparing to bring on Robbie Keane.
Gomes bundles Janssen's corner behind at the near post. The next delivery again goes out at the near post but this time it's a Spurs goal-kick.
Gomes has to pull off a fine diving save to deny Brama. Chadli plays it in to Landzaat on the edge of the box and he lays off for Brama to strike from just over 20 yards.
Twente have been controlling possession since their third equaliser, with the home crowd in full voice.
It's been a strange game as although Tottenham have led three times, they were gifted two goals and Twente have played the better stuff. Another exciting chapter to Spurs' remarkable European adventure!
Tottenham are still on course to top the group - it's 2-0 to the home side in Bremen - but the two sides have served up a cracker here in Enschede....and there's over 20 minutes left!
GOAL! And it's a textbook curler from the Belgian midfielder, bending it over the wall and into the top corner. Gomes again has no chance.
Long delay as Twente prepare to take the free-kick. This time it looks as though Janssen will let Chadli try his luck.
Lennon is deemed to have clipped the heels of Janko as the Twente forward tried to pull the trigger from just over 20 yards.
Janssen dithered in possession and slipped as he was closed down by Wilson Palacios, giving the Spurs midfielder a clear run at goal. And although his shot is saved by Boschker, Defoe is on hand to turn in the rebound.
GOAL! Yet Spurs are in front again as Defoe scores his second - and just his third of an injury-hit season.
Twente finds Janssen on the left and he clips the ball across the box, where Rosales has come in from right-back to rise above Assou-Ekotto and direct a header inside the far post beyond Gomes, giving the Spurs keeper no chance.
This from Azzi Griggs before Spurs' second..."I'm a Tottenham fan and would like Spurs to win 3-1 and for Defoe to be on the scoresheet." You may just get your wish!
Good news from Bremen as Werder go 2-0 up and Spurs are destined to win Group A and avoid the big boys in the last 16.
Twente come straight back at Spurs as De Jong brings down a long ball and lays off for Janko, whose 20-yard effort is deflected wide off Bassong. Chadli heads the corner goalwards but it's an easy save for Gomes.
Kranjcar plays it wide for Bale, whose cross is deflected but Douglas makes hash of getting it cleared. Lennon nicks it off him on the edge of the box before flicking it through for Defoe, who lifts it over the keeper for his first goal since August. Great pass and tidy finish.
John Wallis, another Arsenal fan, has got in touch as the second half gets started: "Results in the Premiership state that Spurs are not good at the back but are clearly strong up front so I think they will do ok. All the best to the English teams, I say." What do you Spurs fans think about your backline?
A mixed first half but do you think Spurs wil do enough after the break? Let us know your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hammad has got in touch from Pakistan and, despite being an Arsenal fan, wants Spurs to go through as group winners: "Spurs have become very strong under Redknapp. I hope Bremen beat Inter and I see Spurs winning 3-1."
Spurs were gifted the opening goal and although Twente were fortunate to be awarded the penalty for their equaliser, they finished the half the stronger side. And with Inter losing, Spurs will win the group if scores stay as they are.
Again Spurs break through Bale and his near-post cross is turned a couple of yards over by Defoe. Difficult chance for the England striker...and the whistle goes for half-time.
Kranjcar is onto the clearance and plays it wide for Lennon, whose cut-back just fails to find Pavlyuchenko.
Another Spurs attack is led by Defoe, who has been quiet so far, before Bale's cross is cleared by Tiendalli.
Janko flicks a cross through to Gomes and Spurs break through Bale down the left and Boschker has to punch a teasing cross clear.
Inter are losing away to Werder Bremen, though, so as it stands, a point will be enough for Spurs to clinch top spot.
Gomes punches Janssen's corner clear but the ball comes back in. De Jong flicks on for Janko, who takes a touch before slicing his shot wide from 10 yards. Good chance for Twente, who are now on top.
Bale wins another free-kick off Rosales down the Spurs left before Twente come back at Spurs with some more neat play in midfield involving Janssen and Landzaat.
Twente again attack down the left. This time De Jong goes down as the cross comes in but, rightly, the ref waves away the penalty appeals.
Kranjcar picks it up 25 yards out and lashes a hopeful right-footed effort well wide. The Croatian has struggled to get involved.
Neat passing move by Twente outside the Spurs box before Theo Janssen's touch is just too far long for De Jong.
The Spurs physio comes on to treat him and as Jenas hobbles off he is booked by the Spanish referee, presumably for time-wasting. It's a costly booking too as Jenas is now suspended for the last 16 first leg.
Jermaine Jenas signals to come off after suffering an injury. The central midfielder has only just come back from a calf injury.
Twente clear Bale's right-wing corner and break, with Gomes gathering a cross at the second attempt.
Pavlyuchenko heads the corner goalwards at the near post and this time Boschker reaches back to turn it over.
Pavlyuchenko tries his luck with a swerving 25-yard strike which the home keeper does well to turn wide.
Twente regain possession and the home crowd are urging them on. A whole different atmosphere to just 10 minutes ago.
GOAL! Landzaat again finds the back of the net...and this time it counts. The former Holland midfielder is a lucky boy though as he scuffed it down the middle, Gomes had dived to his left and it went in off the keeper. The Brazilian would have stopped that if he stayed still...and perhaps still should have stopped it anyway.
And Assou-Ekotto is involved again as Twente are awarded a penalty after Rosales' shot is blocked by the Spurs left-back. It did hit Assou-Ekotto's arm but he raised it to prevent the ball smashing into the side of his head!
Murmurs all around as another backpass goes towards Boschker. This time it's wide of goal anyway and the keeper hacks it clear.
The Twente legend is making his Champions League debut at the grand old age of 40 but it'll be a night to forget after this. Wisgerhof played a backpass to the veteran keeper, who swung his left foot to punt the ball clear only to see it bobble over his foot and nestle in the bottom corner!
GOAL! Spurs are gifted the lead through a Peter Wisgerhof own goal but it's a howler from keeper Boschker.
Pavlyuchenko breaks down the right and cuts back for Bale on the edge of the box but his touch sends him wide. The Welsh star has to dig out a cross from the left and it's easy for the keeper Sander Boschker.
Wilson Palacios gives away a free-kick 25 yards out for a high challenge on former Wigan midfielder Denny Landzaat.
Pavlyuchenko lays off for Bale, who bursts into the right channel so is therefore on his weaker foot and his shot is blocked.
Gallas gives away a free-kick in the Twente half. Luuk de Jong chests down a long ball on the edge of the Spurs box and lays off for Wout Brama to test Gomes give a 25-yard strike. Good save by the Spurs keeper, who turns it wide.
Twente have done well to get five points so far as many expected the Dutch newcomers to finish bottom below Champions League regulars Werder Bremen but Jonathan Phillips predicts a 3-1 away win "for the Mighty Spurs, we've been flying in the Champions League and we have a target to aim for whereas Twente are already guaranteed Europa League football. Super Bale to get 2 goals and Defoe to score as well, it's his time to shine."
Spurs certainly made them look ordinary at White Hart Lane on that memorable night earlier in the group. What a roller-coaster campaign it's been for Spurs since that play-off away leg at Young Boys! What has the latest installment got in store for us?
Lyndon from London (he admits that looks stupid!) reckons: "Spurs will come away with a point but top the group. Sneaky feeling Inter are going to come unstuck tonight. A turgid Benitez 'inspired' performance methinks. Take Eto'o out and I reckon they're an ordinary side under him."
Chas expects a hard-fought contest, adding: "It's in the midfield where I see a battle being played out. Twente will be playing for pride in front of their fans and Spurs want top spot, so can see quite a tussle and will not be surprised to see a penalty here."
Chas has already got in touch and is pleased with the Spurs side: "Good to see Kranjcar back in the starting line-up and Pav given a start too. That said, Spurs will miss Van der Vaart and Modric. Spurs have fared well despite so many first choices out. Interesting to see the betting odds change this evening with both sides level whereas Spurs were clear favourites at teatime - must be to do with the loss of more players to injury. With Huddlestone out, Palacios and Jenas will have to protect the backline as well as support the forwards."
Can Tottenham get the victory they need to finish top of the group and go into the last 16 as one of the eight seeded clubs? How will they fare in the knock-out stage? Let us know your thoughts at email@example.com
Fit-again Jermaine Jenas and Roman Pavlyuchenko return up front while Luka Modric (flu) and Peter Crouch are left out. Twente have handed a Champions League debut to veteran goalkeeper Sander Boschker and a recall to Dwight Tiendalli.
Harry Redknapp has kept to his word and handed some of his fringe players a start as Tottenham chase top spot in Group A. Vedran Corluka comes in for his first appearance since September while fellow Croat Niko Kranjcar is also handed a rare start.
